Sunday morning music 




Bandmaster Morris 



Probably that non-midshipman organization 
which is closer to the Brigade than any other 
is the Naval Academy Band. Our life is their's. 
They play as we parade on Worden Field, and 
as we march to football games and to Chapel; 
as we hold pep rallies in the messhall and 
Tecumseh Court; as we dance the best girl 
around darkened floors to "Sleepy Time Girl." 
Their bandstand serenades set a fast pace for 
sections going to and returning from classes, 
giving each one of us a new vigor and a some- 
times incorrect feeling that spring is in the air.

Seamanship and Hawiqatian 




CAPT. R. F. STOUT, USN 
Head of Department 



From our first day of Plebe Summer, the Seamo Depart- 
ment was one of the groups most responsible for our 
seemingly endless procession of drills. Starting with cut- 
ter drills, sailing and jackstay work, and going on to 
signaling, motor launch handling, yawl sailing, and 
finally, as First Class Year rolled around, YP drills, we 
spent our "sea time" under their guidance. Three times 
each year we relearned the flashing light code and took 
the blinker competition in Luce Hall. The second term of 
Second Class Year we started our formal classroom con- 
tact with the Navigation Department, where we were 
separated into two classes, those who could punch tables 
and those who couldn't. Throughout that year, First Class 
Cruise, and the first term of First Class Year, we became 
increasingly familiar with the Nautical and Air Almanacs, 
HO 214's, Dutton's tables, and maps and charts of every- 
thing. "Practice makes perfect" was their motto— we cer- 
tainly lived up to part of it.

Our first contact with Ordnance and Gunnery came Plebe 
Summer on our trips across the river to the rifle range, 
where we were instructed in the handling of small arms 
and range procedure. Plebe Summer ended; it was a 
year before that subject became anything more to us 
than just another contributor to the grey hairs of the 
upperclasses. With the start of Youngster Cruise, how- 
ever, we became better acquainted through the mediums 
of General Quarters, gun drills, and lectures. From those 
drills and the basic drills of Youngster Year, through the 
classroom work in ordnance and ballistics Second Class 
Year, we progressed to the more difficult matters of solving 
the surface and antiaircraft fire control problems of 
First Class Year. On cruises we learned something of 
what makes a gunnery department go, and how to man 
the stations of a ship's battle bill. In the classrooms we 
laid the groundwork upon which to build to get "the 
maximum hits in the minimum time."

Our acquaintance with the Aviation Department was first 
made Third Class Spring in a rather brusque way— the 
dunking drills. In addition to flying, on Second Class 
Cruise we studied carrier air operations, some elementary 
phases of air tactics, and aerology. Second Class Year 
our work was divided into two phases, drills in the fall 
and spring, and classroom work in the winter. In the fall 
we flew dual instruction and studied aerodynamics and 
flight planning. That winter we combined our work in 
aerology and studied, in addition, the organization, his- 
tory, and physical setup of naval aviation. In the spring 
we alternated flying drills with airborne radar. First Class 
Year we again flew in the fall and spring, studying air- 
craft control, types of missions, and other matters show- 
ing the relation of aviation to the fleet during the winter, 
and with an eye on the future, we took the aviation 
selection tests to see if we were qualified to go into the 
aviation branch.

Plebe Summer and most of Plebe Year our time with the 
Marine Engineering Department was spent over drawing 
boards. Starting with the simplest types of engineering 
drawing we advanced through descriptive geometry and 
sketching to the final phase of Plebe Year— a study of 
naval boilers, in preparation for Youngster Cruise. Young- 
ster Year we worked with engineering materials and proc- 
esses, naval turbines, auxiliary machinery, and internal 
combustion engines to round out our studies in the mechan- 
ical analysis of naval machinery. Second Class Year we 
learned what makes the moving parts move in the courses 
in fluid mechanics and thermo-dynamics. First Class Year 
we started off with thermo-dynamics of internal combus- 
tion engines, and went on to basic mechanisms, finishing 
during the second term with buoyancy, stability, and 
damage control. On cruises we put into practice our class- 
room work and became acquainted with the operating 
characteristics of engineering plants.

"F-MA" For two and one-half years this was our battle 
cry as we sought to ground ourselves in the language 
of science under the Math Department. Plebe Summer 
was spent in catching up on what math we had forgotten 
and learning to use a tool that was to become as much 
a part of us as our hands— the guessing-rod, or slip-stick. 
From then on we spent the year in the throes of trigo- 
nometry, higher algebra, and the perennial bugaboo, 
analytical geometry. Second term brought the beginnings 
of differential calculus, and we then began to realize how 
cumulative math is. Youngster Year we continued with 
integral calculus, and then went on to mechanics, kine- 
matic and dynamic, until the middle of Second Class Year. 
That our math courses were in constant application in 
the other departments as methods of expression and 
problem-solving was a fact that made this course one 
which was of immediate value. Its use was not only in 
the future, but in the present.

Our course from the Electrical Engineering Department 
was divided into two phases, physical sciences and elec- 
trical sciences, with our first two years devoted to the 
former and our last two years devoted to the latter. 
Plebe Year we studied chemistry, paying special atten- 
tion to the basic ideas and those aspects of modern 
chemistry which would be applicable to our profession. 
Youngster Year we took up physics, studying, in addition 
to the common physical phenomena, the principles of vec- 
tors, and continuing our work in atomic and molecular 
structure from chemistry. Second Class Year we started 
with the theories of electricity and continued after that 
with basic electrical engineering. First Class Year we con- 
tinued our work in electrical engineering and took up 
electronics, studying in the general rather than the spe- 
cific, with an eye to having a groundwork for understand- 
ing and using new developments.

We studied many subjects in many fields under the De- 
partment of English, History, and Government. We 
started off Plebe Year with grammar and composition, 
continuing the second term with the study of English Litera- 
ture. Youngster Year we studied European History in the 
first term and American government in the second. Sec- 
ond Class Year we began with a short course in eco- 
nomics and continued by studying how our country has 
developed in the international field under the course in 
diplomatic history. Second term we continued our work 
with literature, studying specimens of the great literary 
masterpieces of various cultures of Europe with an eye to 
seeing how the culture and the writing can be tied together. 
First Class Year we included new phases, classroom speech 
and after-dinner speaking. Our first term was devoted to 
the study of the history of sea power, based on Mahan's 
concepts/ and the second term was given to independent 
research and development of a topic for a term paper.

As the modern naval officer not only must be well- 
grounded professionally, but also must have the ability 
to meet other people on their own ground, for two years 
we studied our choice of foreign languages to gain pro- 
ficiency in some tongue other than our own. These studies 
covered not only the grammar and rhetoric of the par- 
ticular language we took, but also included reading some 
of the great classics of that language. Toward the end 
of Youngster Year we took up the parts of our language 
especially necessary for naval officers by examining vari- 
ous situations in the language and seeing their applica- 
tion to particular occasions we might have to face. On 
cruise we began to see just how valuable this language 
training was by comparing the activities of those who 
spoke the tongue of the country with the doings of those 
who did not. During First Class Year many of us acquired 
ratings as interpreters and translators.

CAPT W. W. HARGRAVE (MC), USN

The Hygiene Department saw to it that our bodies re- 
mained fit under the rigorous routine. Yearly physical 
examinations insured our continued physical qualifications, 
and the staff of sick bay took care of the little ills which 
beset us, while the hospital took care of the more serious 
ailments. The dental quarters of Bancroft were always 
available when the morning coffee brought a twinge. 
The only course required by Congress to be taught at 
the Naval Academy is Hygiene. Second Class Year we 
had our hygiene course, a series of lectures on the various 
phases of personal hygiene and the various aspects of 
"the promotion and safeguarding of health, which is one 
of the functions of command." For these lectures we had 
leading naval medical experts who instructed us in such 
varied fields as medicine in modern warfare, mental 
hygiene, first aid, aviation and submarine medicine, physi- 
ology, and other necessary aspects of our responsibilities 
in command.

One of our most intimate associations throughout our 
four years was with the P. T. Department, which sought 
for us mens sano in corpore sano by insuring that we had 
a well-rounded physical training course. Organized 
drills in the many phases of physical skill insured at least 
a basic knowledge of almost every type of activity, as 
well as developing interests we would carry beyond our 
time at the Academy. In close conjunction with the or- 
ganized drills came the yearly tests in strength, agility, 
and swimming, which not only marked our development 
throughout our stay, but also established standards which 
had to be met for qualification. On the lighter side, the 
department, recognizing that athletics provide a healthy 
and beneficial form of recreation, set up the sports pro- 
gram which gave everybody a chance to develop his 
skill and teamwork in almost any known sport, developing 
habits of exercise to be kept to our advantage.

NORMANDY, MISSOURI 

As a member of the inland fleet based in Missouri, Bill 
did most of his sailing in the air as an AVCAD before 
landing at Navy. Though side-tracked from the pursuit 
of his wings, "Shaky" has had an enjoyable time vi- 
brating from class to class, girl to girl, and year to 
year. When a dragging weekend rolled around, Bill 
and his lady were usually found at the informal— or 
had to be ferretted out of the movie. The other 
afternoons found him butting heads on the gridiron. 
"Trembles" also loved the water. He won numerals in 
plebe swimming, crew, and water polo. His outstanding 
idiosyncrasy was his sense of humor; next came his 
"late to bed, late to rise" habit, his being deaf and 
dumb before breakfast, and his writing letters from a 
master copy. 



£>dward C Mdhins 

VILLISCA, IOWA 

After a year and a half in the USNR, Ad. was quick to 
get into the swing of things here. A born diplomat, the 
"Judge," as he was called because of the favorable 
decisions he has wrung from the Execs, numbered his 
friends in all classes. Although he had an OAO back 
in his home town, he occasionally dragged to insure 
a pleasant weekend. Ed's interests were many and 
varied. An avid follower of politics, he was always 
ready to extol the merits of the GOP, or the fallacies 
of the New Deal. His free time was consumed with his 
classical record library, or in a bridge game. Although 
his main interests lay in the liberal arts field, Ad found 
his niche in the classroom, and stood well in his class. 
His ability to make everyone a personal friend will 
insure his success. 



ROSELLE, NEW JERSEY 

One of the most easy-going men in the class, Bob has 
seldom been found in an argument— when he's there, 
it is always a discussion. A "Rapid-Robert" over the 
hedges, Bob has seldom been beaten in company cross- 
country or steeplechase. Crew called him plebe summer, 
but this took away from his beloved sack time, and 
was forsaken. With the sound of wedding bells in his 
ears, Joe was an unswerving devotee of his OAO for 
four years, and the chiding of his wives for his being 
"in a rut" was answered by just a smile. The Academy 
was his first taste of the military, and although the 
system frequently came under the fire of his heavy guns, 
Bob plans on a long career, preferably while serving 
in the silent service.

John Jl M$aww**w 

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

John's personal charm, wit, and perpetual smile made 
the rigors of Academy life far easier for him and for 
all who knew him. His pleasant nature was admirable, 
for this Middle Western lad lived for most of his four 
years in a state of crisis with the Math department. 
Since Youngster Year and release from the barren social 
status associated with "Hey! Mister," John exchanged 
cliches in as many Washington and Baltimore drawing 
rooms as his frame could possibly stand, and as yet, 
he has failed to succumb to that feminine menace, the 
girl back home. John was a wonderful guy to know, 
and with his outstanding personal attributes, he will 
surely make a most enviable Naval career. 



William D. />##» <»## 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

This strong man arrived at the Academy with an eye 
for the Marine Corps, a sun tan, and a crew cut. He 
still kept the crew cut, but by Second Class Year, his 
plans changed until they just seemed to center around 
a quiet little home in Southern California. But Califor- 
nia gave him more than nostalgia, for there the "Chief" 
had gained more muscles than any ten men could ever 
use, and was only satiated when climbing the rope for 
the gym team. Point Loma High School and Boyden's 
Prep in San Diego started Bill off on his scholarly career, 
and in the last few minutes of many a study hour he 
could still be heard saying, "They can't bilge us all." 



I%»b4' i 1. I>4*h4>, 

ALVA, OKLAHOMA 

Though quiet, Bob could always be found in the thick 
of it when anything big was on the fire. A Navy Junior, 
Bob lettered in football at Bullis Prep before entering 
the Academy. His main interests, aside from women, 
could be summed up in two words— wine and song. 
Although Skinny kept him hopping, he was always ready 
to help out a classmate with a blind drag or a tough 
prob. An active intramural sportster, Bob was in com- 
pany steeplechase, softball, and football, and batt 
swimming and football, as well as occasional yawl 
races, winning numerals in three fields. His first love 
is Naval Aviation, and, if he has his way, he'll head for 
those wings as soon as possible after graduation.

DULUTH, MINNESOTA 

Dick, a hardy northman, never could understand the 
significance of "How cold does it get in Maryland, 
Mister?" His main pre-Navy endeavor was being on 
the varsity basketball team at Duluth State Teacher's 
College— male student body of eight. A firm believer 
in the machine age, with its luxurious living, Dick made 
his "B-hole" a repository of non-reg luxuries, exemplified 
by the "Officers Country" sign appropriated on young- 
ster cruise. Yawl sailing occupied many an afternoon, but 
he was never without his book, FRENCH MADE EASY. 
With this extra-curricular French, as with many other 
self-imposed tasks, Dick displayed a foresight that laid 
the ground for things ahead.

GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA 

A "hot-rod" fan from the first backfire, in the true 
California tradition, Beak occasionally would amaze us 
with his technical dissertations— "Now, an Edelbrack 
head—" etc., and always cherished fond memories of 
the good old days at the University of Southern Cal- 
ifornia, and especially those SAE house parties. Although 
his romantic life here resembled a sine curve, originating 
just before Christmas leave each year, approaching its 
peak around April, and hitting the low just before June 
Week, Tom never let this phase bother him. He divided 
his spare time between the Public Relations Committee 
and playing the piano, boogie style. The most compel- 
ling demand on his spare time was his sack, and rare 
was the day when Tom didn't pay homage to that 
gentle deity.

From the Hub of the Universe to the Naval Academy, 
via the Atlantic Fleet, is Irv^s short story. Brigade life, 
especially chow, agreed with him and his ability to 
insert humor into any situation made him a welcome 
addition to our class. Despite occasional trouble with 
the Academic Board, Irv still wants to enter the Civil 
Engineering Corps. What with playing batt football 
and cheering for the Boston Braves, he found little time 
for dragging, but whenever he did drag there was sure 
to be a spectacular story the next day. Whatever the 
future brings, there will always be laughs aplenty and 
chuckles galore for those who are fortunate enough to 
work with Irv.

BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI 

The salt air of his home town filled Roger with a liking 
for the blue waler and a long wind, although he would 
suppress his verbosity and direct his attention to the 
books, with stellar results— "star, that is!", or to the 
Public Relations Committee. He spent his weekends with 
fair ladies from anywhere between New York and New 
Orleans, using tactics gained as a Kappa Sig at Tulane. 
Besides his cross-country racing with his drags on Sunday 
afternoons, the "Body Boh" was a tough competitor in 
tennis, squash, handball, or sailing. Man being the prod- 
uct of his yesterdays, Roger can look forward with 
confidence to the dawn of tomorrow. 



JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY 

In this corner, wearing the Marine Green, from Jersey 
City, New Jersey, we have Kenneth Andrew Bott, known 
to friends of all classes as Ken, outstanding friend and 
officer. Ken came to the Academy with the enlisted rank 
of Marine staff sergeant, and since that time has given 
the Academy a combination of spirit, friendliness and a 
necessary amount of academic effort. Best remembered 
as an indispensable master of ceremonies and the spark 
of good batt football teams, Ken found the Academy a 
stepping stone in a Marine Corps career. His Jersey 
accent, military know-how, and Jeannie-inspired dream- 
ing made him well-known in short order to all classes, 
and he spent full time on each subject. Sincere in things 
important, Ken leaves the Academy with real friends 
addicted to Jeannie and Jersey.

If you did not know, the southern drawl would soon 
tell you that Rhodes came from Alabama. Transition 
from civilian life to the Navy was no problem after two 
years at Marion Military Institute, where he majored in 
Engineering. Never seeming to strain at anything, he 
was always counted on when a job needed doing. 
Athletics were well started when he reached Annapolis; 
football and baseball gave him excellent background to 
play on champion batt football and company softball 
teams. Varsity sports were represented in an heretofore 
untried sport, fencing. A typical example of his quality 
to see every joy through was illustrated in his being 
one to achieve the Eagle rank in scouting. Rhodes picks 
the Navy for a well-begun military career, not specifying 
branch.

TAMPA, FLORIDA 

"Born on the crest of a wave, and rocked in the cradle 
of the deep"— seems to typify this young Floridan who, 
since the age of twelve, has been eating, drinking, and 
sleeping sailboats. After seven years of sailing, and a 
year in the Navy, Brownie came to the Academy, where, 
from plebe summer on, he concentrated on— sailing, of 
course, engaging in all forms of that sport available. 
All this sailing did not, however, keep him from maintain- 
ing a flock of beautiful girls to drag, and few were the 
hops he missed. Always ready to join in the fun, he has 
helped in many a water fight, bricking party, and shower 
drenching. C.T.'s loyalty and leadership will be invalu- 
able in his Navy career. 



ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA 

In accordance with his maxim that the fairway is re- 
served for the spineless, cowardly golfer, Ed has spent 
a good portion of his twenty-two years crawling out 
of sand traps and emitting harsh noises from behind 
uncompromising trees. Tenacity has its reward, however, 
for during Plebe Year, Ed managed to win the Maryland 
Intercollegiate Golf Championship, and came in a close 
second his Youngster Year. Despite these leg-aching 
triumphs, his prowess on the gridiron, and his position 
as secretary of the class, Ed has stood high academi- 
cally, and somehow found time to allow himself to be 
spoken for by the ever watchful girl back home. With 
a driver on his shoulder and wings on his chest, Ed 
is certain for a future of which both he and the Navy 
can well be proud. 



MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA 

When Glenn graduated from Blake School in 1944, 
he, a garden tie lover, volunteered and was sent over- 
seas from Minneapolis to St. Paul, Minnesota. Soon after 
his arrival here, Glenn was re-baptized "Horse," a 
nickname more renowned than Kilroy's or Smoe's. Con- 
vinced that no one loves a fat man, as a plebe he 
enrolled in a first classman's pushup course, and with 
such an athletic background, "All Brigade" became 
proficient as a gridiron terror. Mentally gifted as well, 
"Horse" could lay aside his texts early in favor of 
outside interests. His only worries were the barber shop 
and his non-reg argyle sox. Unpretentious, and ever the 
first to wish one well, Horse has the best wishes of all 
his friends for a future that's bound to be bright.

After roughing it for a year in Penn State's V-12 unit. 
Bob signed on for a hitch aboard the USS Bancroft. 
That first year was a hard one, but Bull solved every 
problem in its turn. Youngster year was fruit for our 
boy, save for an occasional social misfire. After second 
class year, though, Bob had his dragging down to a 
cold science and academics well in hand, so life was 
a happy little adventure. Bob divided his spare time 
among the TRIDENT as advertising manager, the golf 
team, for which he hit many a mean ball, and almost 
every known book. He's headed for the silent service, 
but whether in subs or civvies, Bob's final biography will 
be that of a distinguished and accomplished gentleman. 



Herbert 31 Jiulivr, Jr. 

NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK 

Herb had his own ideas on how the system should 
function, based on his days with the Colonels, with 
their afternoon shows and quiet classroom sessions. Pro- 
ficient in Academics, Herb could usually be found 
exploring his sack, whipping out a poster for some 
event, or shaking his head over his "Giants." Since "this 
place hasn't got an ice-hockey team," he had to be 
contented with guard on the batt football team, left 
fielder on the company softball team, and company 
basketball, plus working on the Class Ring Committee. 
Although not definitely a twenty-year man, Herb plans 
to make the Engineering Corps his line of duty, if the 
civilian world doesn't call too loudly. 



WASHINGTON, D.C. 

Wes claims a variety of addresses, the permanent one 
being Washington, D. C, the home of Howard Univer- 
sity, where Wes was in the Army ASTP program, major- 
ing in Electrical Engineering. Well prepared for acade- 
mics and with an eye for the cross country and outdoor 
tracks, Wes gave them their full share of attention, be- 
ing more than just a competitor in both. Many of 
Navy's tennis players were a target for his speed Plebe 
Summer, but tennis took a back seat to running when 
the fall arrived. Activities such as the German Club, 
chess, and photography claimed his free time. The 
future seems very bright for Wes, today, and with de- 
termination, courage, and high purpose he will shape a 
well-deserved career.

BRISTOL, RHODE ISLAND 

In 1945 the Army of the United States gave up one of 
its foremost contenders for the little gold bars, and the 
Beard reported. Plebe Year was a storm, a passing 
parade of pre-dawn trots around the obstacle course, 
mad battles with the slide rule, coming around parties, 
and words with the Rock. Then with a grunt and a 
groan, Luke finally opened the door of Youngster Year, 
got a haircut, and started in again. The art of swimming 
was almost his nemesis, but Luke came through, got 
another haircut, and tore through Second and First 
class Years, leaving steam profs limp and haggard. 
Luke's musical prowess is second to none, and his tal- 
ents have aided materially to the successes of the NA-10 
and Musical Club Shows during his stay. A great guy, 
a real friend, and a man in every sense of the word, 
Al's success is a sure thing.

James M. CiBriMwtuh. Jr. 

CHASE CITY, VIRGINIA 

Had not Sir Patrick James answered the king's cry of 
"Oh whar will I get guid sailors to sail this schippe of 
mine?", Jim would certainly have been the first to vol- 
unteer. Dubbed the "Ancient Mariner" by his classmates, 
he surprised no one by donning foul weather gear, 
impressing a crew for his yawl, and sailing on the cold- 
est day of the year. He could be found giving his all 
whenever "the wind doth blow," yet, surprisingly enough, 
his aim is sub duty. A Virginian, Jim was wistfully dis- 
gusted with the five-mile limit's iron curtain. Voted the 
man with the hairline most likely to recede, Jim intends 
someday to immortalize himself (with due apologies to 
Milton) with a sonnet entitled "On His Baldness." 



Jamas W). Carpenter 

IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN 

If the Mason-Dixon line divides the "lazy South" from 
the "bustling North", Jim is from the wrong side. Hailing 
from about as far north as one can go in the U.S., he 
always seemed to be the last one safely in ranks, and 
usually answered reveille by turning over on the other 
side. Perhaps the sudden change in climate slowed him 
down — some, however, thought that it was because his 
thoughts were always in that "Baltimore Wonderland." 
In Academics, he soon showed the talent worthy of a 
no-strain attitude, although he managed to confuse 
several profs, as well as his classmates with his questions 
and explanations. An easy-going redhead with a subtle 
wit, Jim should find success in his Navy career.

J. M.ll&rotj Chamhevs 9 Jr. 

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND 

The Phi Gams at Johns Hopkins were quite chagrined 
back in '45 to learn that J. H. Leroy was soon to take 
up residence at Club Bancroft. An all-around man, 
Leroy starred Plebe Year, and remained up in the top 
third thereafter. True to form, Youngster Year presented 
its tribulations, Leroy's in the form of automobiles and 
some unsympathetic Bull profs. Lee came through, how- 
ever, and even managed to escape half of Youngster 
Cruise, a feat in itself. That he was the scourge of 
Navy's lacrosse opponents was borne out by his Inter- 
collegiate Championship and All-American awards. A 
gentleman of the old school, humorous and friendly, 
Lee shoves off with the best wishes of us all. 



SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

The wandering "nomad" finally found a home when he 
came to Navy, after attending over thirty schools. A 
Navy junior, Mitch came to the Academy imbued well 
with the Blue and Gold. Having studied engineering 
for two years, he found Navy's academics somewhat 
fruity. As well as being independent, Mitch is also 
original, and intensely interested in the principles of 
machines and engineering apparatus. His reasoning 
ability allowed him more time away from the books, 
to be devoted to the LOG advertising staff and the 
Mechanical Engineering Club. His love of sailing caused 
him, at every opportunity, to participate in the yawl 
races. Combining an intense interest with real ability, 
Mitch should find success in his chosen field of engi- 
neering.

Stanley €}. Coop&r 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Ever since Steam ceased to concern boilers, Stan has 
found the subject boring, for he was a Water Tender 
with forty-nine months of service behind him before 
Navy. Coop has fought successfully the fight of an 
interrupted education, entering on a Secretary of the 
Navy appointment directly from the Fleet. Coop has 
been the living proof of determination, despite wife 
trouble, having had only one of his past six roommates 
survive the four years. Lacrosse made an outlet for 
Stan's spirit, and when the season was over, he took 
to batt sports with great success. Classmates will re- 
member Coop's defeat of the Russian language, when 
he developed the most complete three word vocabulary 
in Academy history, and also his refusal to frown on 
even the toughest day.

Donald £>. Craig 

SIDNEY, NEBRASKA 

Happy, of the long and powerful oar, dropped down 
one day at the University of Colorado and just for the 
competition of it, took the NROTC competitive examina- 
tions for the Naval Academy. Since arrival, Don has 
found time to further only a few activities started in 
college and high school where he played football, 
basketball, debated, worked on the high school annual, 
and did a little musical work. Specialization gripped 
him, as it did the rest of varsity crew, so he contributed 
with one of the most powerful and courageous strokes to 
win the Nationals in 1947 at Poughkeepsie. When he 
was not rowing, declaiming on Sidney, his home, or tell- 
ing of Phi Delta Theta life at the U. of Colorado, Don did 
justice to his college honorary memberships. 



Qe&vqe { U). Camming* 

SAG HARBOR, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK 

A Long Islander, George started his nautical career 
early in life, naturally following it up here with swim- 
ming and sailing. He could usually be found either in 
the pool or behind a pile of books and a slipstick. 
Standing high academically, he merely continued his 
practice of hard studying from high school days, when 
he was class valedictorian, and from college days at 
Lehigh, where he studied engineering for a year. George 
had no OAO, and, although he was frequently seen 
escorting some sweet young thing around the yard on 
weekends, he had a notable lack of girl-trouble. The 
easy-mannered way in which he moved over the aca- 
demic hurdles here predict a successful future for him, 
whatever the field. 



f»hn JL Dani* 

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

Enthusiastic and spirited, Jack was only slightly dis- 
turbed in pursuit of wings by threats of a seeing eye 
dog. Jack used that threat to keep the inner man from 
relinquishing the day to the academics. He was gen- 
erally happily unaware that his views on the attire of 
the well-dressed midshipman were at momentary odds 
with those of the OD. A bachelor of circumstances, 
Jack maintains that his explorations hold a claim of 
sorts on history— four year's blind dates produced noth- 
ing but the best. At other moments, Jack was found 
equally at ease climbing rope, playing handball, or 
humming noises. If but half his investment in life is 
returned he will find life always a smile, always a 
thought, always a friend.

NORTH MANCHESTER, INDIANA 

Leaving the banks of the Wabash, Lou came to the 
banks of the Severn with a desire to excel. His friendli- 
ness and good nature won many friends, and soon 
Lucrative Louie's was the place where the crowd gath- 
ered. Twice we have crowded into Louie's hole to say 
goodbye and give our best wishes to our friends who 
were shortly to be USN "retired", for Skip Eccles and 
John Hemphill will remain always a part of '49. Good 
fellowship followed Louie and his gang into Baltimore 
on the immortal football game weekends. When not 
busy just being a swell guy, the Dill took up wrestling, 
lacrosse, and football in their respective seasons. His 
merit is shown by that long string of letters and numerals 
on the back of his B-robe. Taking his athletic adroitness 
and good nature into the fleet, Louie is headed for a 
successful career.

GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI 

Horace, "Dizzy" to us, is a rabid Rebel from the very 
deep South. Class valedictorian at Marion Institute, 
"Diz" arrived at Navy and distinguished himself by 
winning the plebe 155 pound boxing championship. He 
was very active in intramural sports, and won his "1949" 
in battalion boxing and fencing. "Diz" might have been 
called a Dago slash, for his proficiency in Spanish was 
amazing. Many Latin-American midshipmen will testify 
that he spoke like a native. Naturally, he was a member 
of the Foreign Language Club. His interests were varied, 
the favorite being color photography, in which field he 
has won prizes. "Dizzy" hopes to become a submariner 
when he joins the fleet— and all hands will be wishing 
him the best of luck. 



Chester t. Ditto 

RAWLINS, WYOMING 

Chet came from that faraway state of Wyoming, al- 
though he would readily claim Nebraska if given half 
a chance, and was a junior at Grinnel College, Iowa, 
in civil engineering, when he decided to change from 
civvies to the Navy blue. With his college background, 
Chet was able to navigate all the formidable rivers 
without any difficulty, supplementing his book learning 
with very creditable performances in varsity, plebe, and 
intramural sports, and it was a rarity when he failed 
to finish among the top three in company cross country 
and steeplechase. In the winter, he missed most those 
famous Wyoming snowstorms which had allowed him 
to ski, toboggan, and the like. Upon graduation, Chet 
has his eye on the air corps, although it is rumored that 
he would accept the Supply Corps if offered.

ANOKA, MINNESOTA 

Bob Douglass claimed he'd answer to any nickname, as 
long as it promised a call to dinner. The most favorite 
handle accumulated seems to be Duff which generally 
got the desired result. He went briefly to the University 
of Minnesota and served in the Navy for ten months 
before entering the Naval Academy. High school foot- 
ball and track placed Doug as a valued member of 
various company and batt sports, but his favorite was 
the softball team, where he gladly spared minutes from 
golf, which was his forte for recreation. Academics 
never bothered him, and the sack beckoned during 
many a study period. Doug is not particular as yet 
about the branch of service he wants or the type of 
ship, but his addition as an officer will be that of a 
serious worker.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Roger hardly ever needed more than a pep-rally to 
drag out a Bear-inscribed flag of California. Coming in 
on a Reserve Fleet Appointment, he put in long diligent 
hours on academics that soon pushed him to the top. 
He found soccer, a game which captured his fancy upon 
arrival, an outlet in fall sports. In the winter his locale- 
sport, swimming, took precedence, and, although man- 
aging the batt sport, he still took time off to race in a 
few meets himself. Roger claimed through four years 
that he was a Red Mike, opposed to dragging, but when 
the occasion or a particularly attractive drag captured 
his fancy, he was hard-pressed to explain the departure 
from original theory. He lists no special field of service, 
but Pacific Coast duty heads preference list. 



Mlslvn §1. £llis 

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA 

Two uncles, one cousin, and a brother in the Navy 
might not have influenced Bot's coming to the Academy, 
but as a Naval Reserve in 1944 he had his eye on 
Navy. Once arrived, he started right in to get as much 
out of it as he could. Although Plebe Year slightly 
hampered it, Youngster Cruise saw Bot's career fully 
launched, and the remainder of Youngster Year en- 
hanced his reputation as an operator. Although settling 
down to the more serious things in life Second Class 
Year, Bot still found time to drag and enjoy life. He 
took active part in company soccer and football, as 
well as company "deals". Whether in Navy blue or 
civvies, his knack for getting on with people will make 
for success.

ARDMORE, OKLAHOMA 

"Carefree" described this lad from the land of oil, 
Indians, and jackrabbits— "Oklahoma!" Never a worry 
in the world, never a frown, and always with a smile 
or witticism, "Tish" Ellis was the type who got along 
with everyone. Dick took the entrance exams in high 
school but managed to put in a stretch at boot camp 
while waiting to see if his efforts would get him to Navy. 
Here he turned his athletic prowess and scrappiness to 
company soccer, and water polo. Dick was a firm be- 
liever in using weekends for pleasure and no weekend 
found him studying or without a drag. Dick endorsed 
Newton's ideas on the conservation of energy. He has 
saved enough energy while at Navy to assure his suc- 
cess in later life and with his wonderful personality, 
"How could he lose?" 



TUCSON, ARIZONA 

Though a native of New Jersey, Bob defended the 
climate of his Western haven with a vigor, maintaining 
that "At least, it's a dry heat." Having lived so close 
to Spanish-speaking Mexico, he tackled Dago with a 
zest, and joined the Foreign Language Club. Bob has 
surprised even himself with his desire for the life afloat, 
and always welcomed the chance to show a drag the 
sea-faring life. He found it difficult to apportion time 
among his many interests, both athletic and cultural. 
A competent "pin-pusher," he contributed to two batt 
fencing championships. His standard contention on 
marriage is that while married men may have their 
better halves, single men have better quarters. Bob 
looks forward to a pair of gold wings to accompany 
his Victory Ribbon.

ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING 

Another product of NAPS, Bainbridge, Jim spent 
eighteen months in the Navy before coming to Navy 
Tech, and thus was well acquainted with the life of a 
sailor. Being a very conscientious student, Jim always 
did well in the classroom. Chemistry and electronics 
fascinated him, although the conjugation of Spanish 
verbs was quite beyond him. Although he had an OAO 
back in his hometown in Wyoming, Jim never missed a 
chance to drag, and his uncanny knack of consistently 
dragging queens aroused the envy of his classmates. 
His interest in the Navy coupled with his desire to as- 
sume responsibility should carry him a long way towards 
his ambition— the submarine service.

HAMMOND, LOUISIANA 

"H.P." 's pre-naval education got off to a good start 
with a three year course at Culver, and his outstanding 
academic record here was proof of his genuine desire 
and ability to excel scholastically. For athletics, he 
turned to wrestling, and was a capable member of 
the JV squad, as well as being prominent in batt 
wrestling and company sports. Far from being a woman 
hater, H.P. maintained a rather lively interest in the 
fairer sex, as was attested by his continual large volume 
of mail from female admirers. Among his major extra- 
curricular interests were an avid interest in bayou boat- 
ing, photography, and collecting popular or classical 
records. We who knew him want to wish H.P. the luck 
and success he deserves in the future. 



BUFFALO, NEW YORK 

Every inch an Irishman, and proud of it. Bob came to 
the Academy right out of high school with definite 
ambitions and more than ample ability to fulfill them. 
After earning valedictory honors at high school, he 
entered Navy with a grim determination, which was 
later reflected in his fine showing, especially in Skinny 
and Math. Perhaps the single accomplishment of his 
Academy career which gave Bob the most pride was 
the way he moulded his slender frame, through constant 
exercise, to the build of a modest Hercules. Although 
handball proved to be his favorite diversion in the 
line of sports, Bob was what one would call an all- 
around athlete. While here, he enjoyed football trips 
and cruises most, chieflly because of the amount of lib- 
erty given. 



(Philip ( JL ( Ml&w€»n£4> 

MORROW, GEORGIA 

With a year of college life behind him, the "Colonel" 
brought to Navy a note of carefreeness envied by all, 
and, after a slow start, became a solid proponent of 
the occupation of dragging. His pet stories usually cen- 
tered around his exploits with shotguns in Georgia, 
with the meal of roast duck or quail as the climax. His 
claims for notoriety came from his oft-used expression, 
"They've come home again," meaning another of his 
uncanny small or grand slams was on the way, and 
his ability to discuss sports and politics. His preference 
for duty seemed to lean toward submarines, but what- 
ever field of endeavor finally claims him, his personality 
will undoubtedly place him well on the road to success.

'James £. Surah, Jr. 

MINERAL WELLS, TEXAS 

Texas never need worry about her prowess as long as 
she keeps producing men like Jim. He came to the 
Academy after a year in the Navy, which he entered 
during his sophomore year at Texas Tech. By the end 
of Youngster Year, some of that Texas dust had been 
shaken from his boots, and Jim took to the sea, win- 
ning his N on the dinghy sailing team. Few hops failed 
to find him dragging some young lovely, and many a 
Sunday night has been spent by some of us lesser mor- 
tals listening to Jim's version of how he does it. Always 
able to take a ribbing, this long, lanky Texan has given 
his friends many a laugh, but "pahdner, don' evah 
cross him up, 'cause his little black-eyed susan is liable 
to start talkin', and that ain't healthy." 



JDonaid M. Quiring 

EAST CLEVELAND, OHIO 

Choosing Don to edit our LUCKY BAG was a happy in- 
spiration, for, demonstrating academic brilliance, he 
combined diligence and endless patience to achieve its 
present standard of excellence. A background of four 
years of continuous success started in his home town at 
Shaw High School and continued at Case Institute of 
Technology, where he majored in Metallurgical Engi- 
neering and became an SAE. He entered the Naval 
Academy on a Secretary of the Navy appointment after 
two years in the Naval Reserve. The mammoth task of 
year book editor gave him almost no time for personal 
hobbies. That he never complained is a clue to a career 
that will ever welcome men of his calibre. 



John C. ^friend 

FORT WORTH, TEXAS 

One of 1949's younger entries, Smiley has been wear- 
ing stars on his collar since Plebe Year. His high school 
background in Fort Worth plus a year and a half as a 
Chemical Engineering major at Yale University was the 
major contributing factor to his ease at understanding 
any and all subjects thrown at him. He has been more 
than a little interested in one specialty, German, and 
has been on the after-dinner speaking list of many a 
German Club meeting. Much free time was spent in 
using a Yawl Command acquired Plebe Year or engag- 
ing in batt and company athletics. Preferred duty as far 
as this converted landlubber is concerned is with the 
submarines.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

The proverbial smiling Irishman has nothing on our 
boy, Spike. His propitious smile brightened the halls 
of Bancroft, and his "I never met a man I didn't like" 
attitude kept the welcome mat out for him. O'Malley's 
naval career began in Gunner's Mate School a year 
before he heeded the call of the Severn via fleet ap- 
pointment. Among J.P.'s numerous achievements was his 
making number one coxswain of AH-American crew of 
1947. No mean slip-stick operator, he held his own in 
academics with little difficulty. Usually quiet and un- 
assuming, Spike was a package of dynamite yearning 
for wings. They'll be his, for with his quick mind, and 
wealth of common sense, he will never fail in whatever 
he should undertake.

WASHINGTON, D.C. 

An alumnus of Mercersburg Academy, Bernie came to 
USNA directly from Bullis Prep. Despite this military 
background, he harbored a secret desire to follow in 
his father's footsteps as a lawyer, and was mildly sur- 
prised, but hardly disappointed to find himself gradu- 
ated from the Naval Academy. His consuming passion 
was sports, and his versatility as an athlete afforded 
him the opportunity for active as well as passive par- 
ticipation. Possessor of a real appreciation of life and 
no end of self control, "Gee Whiz" has ever been an 
inspiration to his more impetuous friends. Add to these 
his "hope for the best, but take what comes" attitude, 
and there is the perfect formula for getting along at 
Navy. 



Hormafi JL Qibsan 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Draped with one of the best pair of vocal chords in 
California, Hoot assailed the Naval Academy in June 
1945. This former high school track star has given the 
musical clubs the benefit of an omnipresent tenor. The 
high spot of many a Chapel service resulted from Norm's 
songs. Many things musical and dramatic, including a 
serious devotion to concertizing on the piano, took most 
of his time. He found time to row on the plebe crew 
and, of the company sports, soccer was his favorite. He 
joined the other photo-bugs in indiscriminate snapping 
of the fairer sex pictures of whom adorned his locker 
and scrapbooks. Our type of life is second nature to 
Hoot, for he came into this world as a Navy Junior in 
Manila.

After Webb School in middle Tennessee, where he

in Latin, Bob went to Southwestern, then the Navy, and 
later Vanderbilt as a vet. Bob used to spend his summers 
in the Great Smokies, where he acquired a taste for 
trout fishing and mountain climbing. He achieved dis- 
tinction Plebe Year as an accumulator of demos (almost 
wound up with the anchor), Youngster Year as a charter 
member of the flying squadron, and Second Class Year 
as the recipient of innumerable CIS chits (almost as 
many as his wives). Unlike most, Bob liked the cruises 
and anticipates European duty.

OAK PARK, ILLINOIS 

John's years at the Naval Academy were marked by a 
seriousness and maturity that helped him to excel aca- 
demically. He became Business Manager of the Masque- 
raders and Combined Musical Clubs, and served both 
the TRIDENT and LOG. At high schools in Oak Park, 
Illinois, Towson, Maryland, and Bloomington, Illinois, he 
laid the keel of his career, finding time for basketball, 
baseball, tennis and cross-country. While in the Navy he 
studied at DePauw, Columbia, and Wabash, finding 
time to play football, work on a magazine, and become 
president of the Wabash chapter of Phi Delta Theta. 
When not laboring for magazine or business staff, he 
played company soccer. A favorite recreation was a 
yawl command, most enjoyed when dragging the OAO 
from Indiana.

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

This not too zealous scholar entered the Academy after 
a happy "social sophomore" year at NAPS. In the 
shower, although he fancied himself as a Caruso, he 
usually sounded as if he were hunting for the lost chord. 
In sports, football was his main interest. His yen for 
travel and meeting people was given full indulgence 
on cruises, and he gained a background of knowledge 
of both the social life and liquid refreshments to be 
found at home and abroad. With his winning smile 
and the twinkle in his eye, Dick could easily please the 
girls, but he didn't capitalize on these assets too often. 
Although he didn't often dazzle the profs with his knowl- 
edge, he always has and always will star in common 
sense.

Walt came to the Academy from the plains of Maryland 
after three years in Naval Aviation. Although he man- 
aged to make the grade in academics, he barely held 
his own in his frequent encounters with the Executive 
Department. A staunch advocate of dragging, Walt 
managed to be seen with his share of queens but had 
some bad luck with blind drags. He will always be 
remembered for his readiness to fix a classmate up 
with a date from that well thumbed address book. Who 
can doubt his good intentions, even if a few did turn 
out to be bricks? His most enjoyable days as a Mid- 
shipman were spent on the summer cruises, and Walt 
will always be happy as long as there is an enchanting 
new port for his ship to enter.

Whether it be studying, competing, making models as

ally, he brought all sports letters from Zeigler Com- 
munity High, and found full play in work on batt foot- 
ball, company soccer, and basketball teams. Academic- 
ally he carried on with the work that before had earned 
him three scholarship awards, despite the lack of any 
college experience. Bill's hobbies, models and photog- 
raphy, took his spare time, and the halls zoomed with 
jet propelled midget racers while the pool became a 
target for boats that actually floated. His locker was 
often inspected for camera shots of the fairer sex that 
added to both photographic and photogenic interest 
throughout his four years. With all these hobbies, he 
managed to find the time to drag. 



Donald HI. Marian 

FRANKLIN, LOUISIANA 

A deep "Luz-iana" drawl and rich baritone voice iden- 
tified our Don, who came to Navy after a tour in V-12 
at Georgia Tech and previous attendance at S.L.I. His 
talent was noticed early, and he received regular voice 
training which he utilized in the high school glee club, 
and later at Navy as a baritone soloist for both the 
Glee Club and the NA-10. During Plebe Year the Musi- 
cal Clubs enlisted him for their show, and continued 
to do so for performances each year. Although his first 
love was music, Mike found time to captain the sound 
gang. In addition to maintaining that academics are a 
snare and a delusion, therefore deserving no strain, 
Don possesses a keen sense of humor and subtle wit- 
qualities which augment a very likeable personality.

SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN 

Hogie reluctantly left Wisconsin, where he was well 
entrenched after education in Lawrence College, Mar- 
quette University, and high school in Superior, to try 
his hand as a Midshipman. Though he found little of 
his favorite sport, ice hockey, he worked right in with 
the academics, which were the same in any climate. 
With the three interests, engineering, sailing, and ath- 
letics as a focal point, Hogie ploughed right into 
Academy life, finding time to take an active part in 
the Math Club, Mechanical Engineering Club, and the 
Boat Club, as well as giving a hand on victorious com- 
pany sports, chiefly volley ball and handball. He ap- 
plied the brilliance that had earned him scholarships in 
high school and college, majoring in the Engineering 
that is his real interest in the Navy. 



Chawtes M. liolihhiis. II 

LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA 

An eloquent discourse in behalf of California, emanat-

that Hotch is busy reviving his second favorite subject. 
A perennial advocate of the leisurely life, Chuck follows 
his creed in meticulously avoiding exercise and fresh 
air as the most dangerous influences on a man's well- 
being. Despite these theories, Chuck managed to play 
lacrosse and soccer. His string of stories received a 
large addition on cruise where Chuckles became almost 
Twainian in his role of innocence abroad. Hotch leaves 
a trail of unrepressed enthusiasm for life, the cut of a 
steady if unapparent dependability, and a group of 
friends limited only by the circle of his acquaintances. 



WASHINGTON, PENNSYLVANIA 

To hold the interest of the "Bear", one had only to talk 
of football or the Marine Corps. He came to Navy with 
twenty-two months as a gyrene pfc. tucked under his 
belt, and immediately set out to make plenty of com- 
petition for linesmen of opponents' football teams. When 
he wasn't actually playing, it was a sure bet that he 
was passing on some of the lore of the game to less 
endowed classmates. "Bear" never took a strain with 
the academics that plagued the rest of us, and liked 
nothing better than to give his sack a workout. Al- 
though he broke many hearts, seldom did he drag here 
in Crabtown— too much work to keep within the sched- 
ules. Needless to say, the Corps is going to see a lot 
more of the "Bear" during the next twenty years.

Junk was one of the stalwarts whom spring found trudg-

Previous to entry, he had put a year into the Navy, 
winning q, ; fleet appointment. Studies since then have 
not been easy without a college background, yet Junk 
has never had to worry about borderline-anxiety; this 
freedom was due mostly to a quick mind and great 
powers of concentration. Studies never interfered with 
his having a good time at the Academy, and his free 
time was spent in dragging, playing company sports, 
and that springtime trek to Hubbard for Varsity Crew.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK 

After the comparatively carefree life at NAPS, Dan 
found Plebe Year at the Academy rather restrictive, but 
he tried to forget the "happy days" and sought an 
outlet for his varied talents on the soccer field and in 
the wrestling loft. With three years of civil engineering 
at Bucknell University behind him, he found no great 
need to exert himself at his studies and was a member 
of the art and literary staffs of the LOG and TRIDENT 
magazines. A true lover of the arts, he was always 
ready to bring a new symphonic record to the attention 
of his classmates. Women, as well as music, occupied his 
free time, and he was never one to miss a weekend. 
We wish Dan the best of luck for the coming years. 



David X. /k»ii#/iiV/» 

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA 

Dave, a proud Swede originally from that land of the 
sky blue waters, Minnesota, came to us through Bullis, 
with two appointments as a result of his scholastic abil- 
ity. He could swing a tennis raquet almost before he 
could walk, and ever since has spent much time on 
the courts. At Navy, he turned to boxing, with fine 
results. When it came to drags, Dave believed in qual- 
ity, not quantity; and heads turned as he and his lovely 
lassies stepped out under Dahlgren's soft lights. His 
ready wit, wisdom, and smile were always welcome at 
any gathering. Dave was always in the van, setting 
the example, and taking the consequences. We wish 
him luck— may he go far with his wings of gold.

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA 

Cal collected nicknames as fast as he did friends, most 
of them in athletics. Fall found him a varsity quarter- 
back on the football team, living up to expectations 
established at Bucknell. The baseball diamond got Cal, 
after spring football, to play a highly effective game as 
an outfielder and place hitter, rounding out the year 
of constant athletic activity. He first embarked on his 
athletic career as a three letter man at Central Catholic 
High. In the V-12 program at Bucknell, he lettered in 
football and baseball. At the Academy, Cal found 
athletics and studies combined a tough combination, 
and persistent effort on limited time was called into 
play; still he found time to be a varied and frequent 
enthusiast of dragging.

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA 

Called Emmet by his family, Archer emerged from a 
year at Harvard with his present nickname of Archie. 
Being a Navy Junior, Archie naturally came to the 
Naval Academy. Although not starring as an athlete 
here, every season he struggled with company sports, 
particularly soccer. Socially, curio collecting, sack time, 
and photography won Archie away from women and 
earned him the title of "Red Mike No. 1". He also 
has the distinction of being the only midshipman to sell 
something to a storekeeper in Panama. Archie's unfail- 
ing good nature and willingness to help his classmates 
were well known during his Academy days and will 
be a great asset to him in his career as a naval officer.

John §L Mint 

BREMERTON, WASHINGTON 

Dick's three year residence in Missouri at Kemper Mili- 
tary School and Central College couldn't put the mules 
before the mountains. Given ten seconds (he'd take 
hours) to summarize the beauties of the "Mighty Pacific 
Northwest," he would prove that mule shoes ran a 
poor second to hob-nailed hiking boots. Possessing a 
broad— and ever increasing— brow on which responsibil- 
ity could welcomely fall, Dick's major efforts were as 
Director of the Public Relations Committee and As- 
sociate Editor of the LOG. Through these and other 
activities free time and many study hours vanished. 
Then there were championship batt football and other 
intramural teams. Last, but not least, a flair for writing 
letters plus a love of the unconventional often combined 
to produce interesting week-ends— a definite phase of 
his Academia.

Walter J. Piraus 

AMERY, WISCONSIN 

Walt, well started on a Naval career before coming to 
the Academy, served in the Pacific as an Ensign after 
graduation in the Naval Reserve from North Carolina. 
There he lettered in football, captained the boxing team 
as Southern Conference light-heavy weight champion in 
1944 and 1945, and was elected to the freshman hon- 
orary fraternity, Phi Eta Sigma. At the Academy, Walt 
concentrated on boxing, winning his letter Plebe Year 
in the light-heavy division, and substantially adding to 
Academy boxing by coaching midshipmen and Navy 
Juniors. One of the first men in 1949 to obtain a Yawl 
Command, Walt could often be found racing or drag- 
ging. He is an exacting worker, intelligent, serious, and 
industrious. 



(John If. Ji§tiiil*<ni 

DES MOINES, IOWA 

John came to Navy Tech after spending a tumultous 
year at NAPS, Bainbridge. His only nemesis of mid- 
shipman days was Plebe Steam. "Those lines just never 
seem to meet on my paper." Knute will long be re- 
membered by all as the "bouncing infantryman" who 
always made his presence felt at a P-rade. Cruises 
and football trips proved to be the highlights of his 
Academy days. Whether it was "chug-a-lugging" 
Hatuey in Guantanamo, marveling at the beauty of 
Swedish women in Stockholm, dancing with a duchess 
in London, tossing pennies to the native children in 
Panama, or being entertained at the home of a British 
diplomat in Portsmouth, Knute was always having one 
big time. 



John yn. Ao/f//f 

SARASOTA, FLORIDA 

Coming to us from deep in the heart of Dixie, Jack 
never tired of exalting his hometown Sarasota. A four- 
letter man in high school, he continued his achievements 
at the University of Florida where he was a Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon. Before entering the Naval Academy, Jack spent 
three years in the wartime Naval Aviation program. 
During his Youngster Year, he played Junior Varsity 
Football but unfortunately injuries forced him to sideline 
this sport. Jack's tall stories go well with his two hobbies, 
fishing and hunting; and his winning smile and easy- 
going nature go well with his tall stories. After gradua- 
tion, he plans to resume his career in Naval Aviation.

Stephen #i. Pirawse 

IRON MOUNTAIN, MICHIGAN 

How he reacted academically during his year at Notre 
Dame, we don't know. Here at Navy, however, he had 
the reputation of "never taking a strain," an attitude 
that was put to the test after one exam that was fol- 
lowed by a regret and repent period. The sigh of 
relief that followed his looking at the grades blasted 
all his good resolutions. Many study hours found him 
deep in his managerial duties of compiling six or seven 
copies of the results of a sailing meet. Afternoons of 
non-sailing or non-dragging weekends found him tour- 
ing the golf course across the river. Nor did his interest 
and prowess end here. As a member of a championship 
company steeplechase team, he always whisked across 
the line before the winner of the next race. 



Off© £. (Jirueger 

ESTES PARK, COLORADO 

After graduation from high school, where he had been 
state student council vice president, Otto felt the ir- 
resistible lure of the Navy. Two years as a ROTC at 
Colorado U and Colorado College convinced him that 
"a sailor's life is the only life." At the Academy, Otto 
had utilized his mellow baritone as a member of the 
Glee Club and in the Musical Club shows. During the 
warmer months, one could usually find him "laying on 
the starboard oar" in one of the J-V shells, but for his 
greatest pleasure, give him a pair of skis and a snow- 
covered mountain. A confirmed philogynist, he has rarely 
missed a dragging weekend. And why not? What wo- 
man could resist that quick, ear-to-ear grin that has 
won him so many friends? 



David C. Harish 

BUFFALO, NEW YORK 

An outline of Dave's life at the Academy is simple: 
three letters a day and a beautiful drag every weekend. 
Occasionally, however, he mixed up his dates and two 
girls or none at all showed up. When summer leave 
finally came around, most of us hit the trail for home, 
but Dave always spent three weeks with a girlfriend 
in the Southwest or Washington before going home. 
He maintained an active and serious interest in sports 
throughout his four years, but his long standing member- 
ship on the excused squad denied him actual participa- 
tion. In spite of an injury to his knee he continued as 
manager of the track team. Dave would like a Navy 
fighter plane in his future.

BOWIE, TEXAS 

After much deliberation whether or not to leave his 
"Lone Star State," Dave finally packed his Texas map 
and almanac, bade farewell to his OAO, and came to 
Navy via Marion Institute and Texas A&M, where he 
had spent a year in civil engineering. In his spare 
time he played football, basketball, soccer, tennis, or 
sailed. He earned the title "Mighty Mite," and won 
his NA playing on the championship one hundred fifty 
pound football team. Inclement weather found Dave 
in the dark room developing or printing pictures, turning 
an ear to classical music as transcribed short-wave by 
the BBC, or getting the latest dope on the recent 
changes in the stock markets. His perseverance and 
diligence have been an inspiration and will carry him far.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN 

Tom attended Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where 
he became a member of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, 
and then went on to Illinois Tech in Chicago as a mem- 
ber of the Naval Reserve before winning his appoint- 
ment to the Academy. He immediately made himself 
conspicious as a champion backstroker and began a 
long and successful career with the swimming team. He 
gathered N-stars and led the swimmers during his First 
Class Year when he captained the team. The future 
looks bright for Tom, who, with his inherent spirit of 
loyalty, optimism, and determination, has set his sights 
on a career in Naval Aviation.

HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA 

Dusting the salt of Bainbridge boots off his shoulders, 
King Benny strode into the Naval Academy one blister- 
ing August day in 1945. His inexhaustible energy and 
friendliness started immediately to win him many friends. 
One of the "Big Dealers" of the company, Jack has 
organized many of our memorable parties and has 
always done a good job. Having excelled in athletics 
at Mercersburg, Ben was a natural on the softball 
diamond, and as manager-star of our championship 
cross-country team, Flash was in his glory. Quite the 
Big Gun with the women, King B. always dragged 
queens, and the blinds he fixed up for his buddies have 
been something to talk about. A grand guy, we know 
Jack's career will be successful.

COWEN, WEST VIRGINIA 

With but a week between him and those "wings of tin" 
as a "Junior Birdman," Les traded the wild blue yonder 
for the dark blue blunder, as he thought Plebe Year. 
Though the galloping pencils of experienced plebe 
draftsmen had him groping for a while, since he con- 
quered that, none of the academic lordlings have daunt- 
ed our hero. Three years with the 150-pound football 
team gave tangible evidence of his spirit. He was always 
an irrepressible aggressor when faced by an obstacle 
—his drags agreed to that. The women went for him 
almost as much as he went for them, even though he 
someday will have trouble if he gets his Lotharian sig- 
nals mixed. West Virginia has given us a genuinely 
sincere and roguish personality who has lightened our 
days here and will enrich the service. 



POUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK 

Having lived for eighteen years at the front gate of 
Vassar, Johnny came to the Academy case-hardened 

in the conviction that "Women are a snare etc.", 

and for the next four years he provided his friends 
with drags. John gathered enough wisdom at Rensselaer 
and Cornell to stay about three lessons ahead of the 
instructors. His editorial ability and fluent pen con- 
tributed a great deal to the success of the LOG. Al- 
though this work at times took every available hour, 
John still had enough vim and vigor to excel in the 
intramural sports field with soccer, football, and soft- 
ball. Thus, John the romantic, the wise, and the agile 
completed four years. With his many interests, overall 
ability and ambition, his success in life is guaranteed. 






BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

"Joesnuffy" came to Navy from the sandy beaches and 
gay nightclubs of his home, via the Navy Air Corps, 
still as a college boy at heart. His main interest was 
naturally aviation, so attending classes was nothing but 
an unavoidable catastrophe in his path to eventually 
obtaining those wings of gold. A serious minded indi- 
vidual, Joe believed in the regulations, although he 
ran afoul of them. He didn't drag often, but he was no 
Red Mike; he was just particular about his women, and 
wasn't quite able to find the dream of his life. There 
was still hope, though— beauty plus money preferred. 
Summer cruises to foreign ports always seemed to be 
fruitful hunting grounds for him, so he must just be wait- 
ing for graduation and some foreign duty to roll around.

Charles til m**ier 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Chuck is one of the Academy's relative minority of men 
of no previous college background. For all that, Chuck's 
seriousness has taken academics in stride during his 
four-year tenure of Midshipmanhood. He entered the 
Academy on a substantiating examination after point- 
ing most of his life toward a Navy career. Twenty years 
waiting to get in the Navy; at least twenty more in it. 
His chosen line is the Naval Air Corps, an interest that 
blossomed at the Academy in the many models that he 
had time to build. He spent high school free time in 
intramural sports, showing the same interest here in 
company gym, soccer, and batt lacrosse and bowling. 
Spare conversational moments always turned to base- 
ball. "Rabid Fan", Dink! P. S— His locker door sported 
another love, an Academy OAO.

TEXARKANA, ARKANSAS 

Leaving his native land for a crack at the Academy, 
High came North for his first look at Yankeeland. Here 
he participated in tennis, soccer, and gym, but sack 
time took precedence over all of these. Photography 
took a great portion of his time here, and we frequently 
met him, developer, printing paper, and hypo in hand, 
happily emerging from the darkroom. His locker door, 
covered with smiling beauties, bore the proof of his ac- 
complishments both in photography and dragging. His 
mastery of bridge never equalled his skill with girls, and 
he often narrowly escaped death at the hands of an 
overtrumped partner. His ability to get along with any- 
one promises to carry him far in any path he might 
choose. 



Dow§aid J. JEoud&n 

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA 

Women never found a place in Don's heart. Progress 
was his passion, and he consistently defended every 
measure, public, private, academic, or otherwise, that 
was liberal and progressive. Not the least of his in- 
terests were history and political science, and he is well 
remembered as having stumped the professors on points 
of history. His sports preferences were golf and tennis, 
in accord with his spirit of individualism. Besides sports, 
music occupied a share of leisure time. A particular in- 
terest in the classics found a companion yen in the desire 
to play bridge. For dependability and accommodation, 
this friendly, hospitable Westerner is unexcelled.

Gerry €tt. ttUCabv 

GREENWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS 

After two and a half years' service in NROTC at Tufts 
and Holy Cross, Mac came to the Trade School. With 
a desire to learn his trade, "The Douff" applied himself 
industriously to the books and few are the professors 
who haven't heard his out-spoken views on the system. 
On the athletic side, Mac participated in squash, cross- 
country, and sailing. His greatest interest, however, 
was the Navy. His most intimate friends swore that when 
he spoke of it, his skin took on a bluish hue, and little 
gold lights gleamed through his eyes. Mac yearns for 
the pig boats, for which he is made to order. Stable, 
steadfast, industrious, and loyal, Gerry always will be 
a great asset to any organization. 



C. JK m*C*witum 9 Jr. 

DAHLGREN, VIRGINIA 

If Robert E. Lee were still alive, he could find no 
stauncher supporter than Charlie. This Marine Junior is 
an ardent history student who knows the truth about the 
war between the states. Starting his military career dur- 
ing high school at St. John's Military Academy, Charlie 
became a crack shot and excellent football player. A 
hard fighter, he proved an asset to the company soccer 
and pushball teams, and, in his second class year, added 
his skill to the Navy's "mighty mites." Studies and con- 
duct reports never bothered Charlie. An ardent liberty 
hound, he never let a dragging weekend got to waste. 
As "Forty-nine" joins the Fleet, the Marine Corps will de- 
clare a holiday in honor of its latest addition, a man who 
still thinks reveille is at 0645. 



EL DORADO, ARKANSAS 

Jim, one of the few remaining examples of a real South- 
ern Gentleman, came to Navy four years ago, a carefree 
college lad, carrying only a passive interest in the more 
serious things of life. He then proceeded to show the 
boys that there was an easy way to do everything, and 
for two years Jim read magazines and talked about 
those happy days in Arkansas, while the rest of us stud- 
ied. After a few minor scares from the Academic De- 
partments, however, he decided to work, and he proved 
then that he could conquer any situation. Jim will long 
be remembered for his unusual ability to make anyone 
laugh anytime, and was in his element on summer 
cruises where his ability to meet and mix with all types 
of people made him an outstanding representative of 
our flag.

GRAHAM, TEXAS 

Readily identifiable by his large grin and twinkling 
toes, Mac made his bid for nautical glory with a back- 
ground of bronc busting, western wisdom gleaned from 
nights around the chuck wagon, and an amazing capac- 
ity for windswept women to help him over the rough 
spots. A true Texan, Mac found his bland outlook and 
engaging personality real assets towards making him 
a serious threat for the title of Brigade Locker Boy— 
1949. A glimpse of gold wings brings a mist into Mac's 
eyes, for he intends to spend a good portion of his 
Naval career at somewhere above ten thousand feet. 
A grand guy to know and live with, Mac will undoubted- 
ly make the Navy a less restful, but decidedly more 
pleasant place for us all.

Plebe year found Mac adjusting old ideas and opin- 
ions. Perhaps the one that underwent the greatest 
revision was that the slide rule could be of little use. 
We fully affirm his proficiency in the use of the slide 
rule as well as all else. When not working on the LUCKY 
BAG, Mac could be found giving his all for company 
gym or touch football, where his sincere spirit and ath- 
letic prowess were invaluable assets. Mac's daily quota 
of perfumed letters from his home state presented con- 
stant evidence of feminine interest, but his first and last 
love was Naval Aviation. To reach his goal, Mac had 
a fixed sense of determination, an abundant sense of 
humor, and a spirit of true friendliness — few can ask 
for more. 



£dward I. §ntQui*ton, Jr. 

HONOLULU, T. H. 

Boasting Honolulu as his birth place and insisting that 
Navy juniors are people, Ed came to us straight out 
of NAPS. A symposium of Mac would show him hanging 
from a horizontal bar by his feet with a Speed Graphic 
in one hand and a tennis racket in the other. As a 
bar man he has proven a mainstay on our plebe and 
varsity gym teams, and over the years his tennis game 
has netted him several awards. His most formidable 
contribution to Severn Tech has been made as official 
photographer for our many publications. "Pat" is of 
that old Navy line and intends to enter the submarine 
service and be as fine an officer as his dad.

BURLINGTON, VERMONT 

"Jasper's" first inkling of Navy Tech came to him at 
Phillips Andover Academy, where one Skip Eccles, his 
roommate, was able to convince Met that the Naval 
Academy was definitely the best of all possible worlds. 
Imbued with the spirit, Met hastened to Middlebury 
and later to M.I.T., whence he wandered into USNA. 
For the last four years, Jasper has been battering friend 
and foe with his lacrosse stick, dislocating limbs on the 
rings in MacDonough Hall, and earning innumerable 
numerals, letters and bruises. As for the future, Met 
casts an approving eye on the Construction Corps— 
those who have seen him shrug off Physics and Math 
know that his qualifications are excellent.

Even when forced to run from one of Harry's models, 
everyone found it hard to avoid his laughter, for a more 
exuberant spirit does not exist. Wholehearted liking at 
the Naval Academy naturally followed previous accept- 
ance in high school and college. He took Electrical 
Engineering first at the Kansas City, Kansas, Junior Col- 
lege, and later in the V-5 program at Park College in 
Parkville, Missouri, earning a place in the National Ser- 
vice APO fraternity. A blonde lady who often graced 
the Academy took Harry from the Model Club or the 
German Club, of which he was secretary, on weekends. 
Week days he spent in working for company and batt 
athletics, included one championship volley ball club. 
Harry looks for his future in the air.

Johnny— Birmingham's apology to civilization— was al- 
ways on the go; from formation to his sack, or from his 
sack to the Wardroom Mess! John always managed to 
take things in his stride, which sometimes included car- 
rying a rifle around the drill field. Raised in Alabama, 
he completed his schooling in Ramsey High School and 
spent one year at NAPS. While here, he dabbled in 
photography, was on the reception committee, the Var- 
sity Pistol Squad, and even started to take piano lessons. 
Athletically he confied himself to company sports, but 
he managed to spend at least one season in every one 
of them. John leaves the Naval Academy with many 
nostalgic memories, and looks forward to greater oppor- 
tunities and successes as a Naval officer.

Bud or C-Squared, as the double initial dubbed him, 
entered on a fleet appointment, and brought with him 
an avid interest in liberal arts. Throughout four years 
at the Naval Academy he has demonstrated that interest 
by cartoons in the Partch manner for the LOG and 
TRIDENT CALENDAR. He applied his academic bent 
to perfecting one of the Academy's more serious games 
of bridge. Though he insisted that his real devotion was 
to the Radiator Squad and the game of bridge, com- 
pany sports found him ready and willing. Possessed 
of an argumentative mind, Bud would discuss anything. 
He edited his school paper and at Blair Academy he did 
more paper and year book chores. He leaves the 
Naval Academy uncertain as to desire for duty.

"Let me tell you about the time . . .," was Rip's intro- 
duction to many a tale of intrigue and pleasure. His 
wild stories, told in the language of the South are pre- 
eminent. Never cracking a book, Rip found studies a 
breeze. In contrast to his toleration of the Academic 
Department, Rip had a definite antipathy for the Execu- 
tive Department. His statements were masterpieces and 
won the praise of many an Executive Officer. It was 
only natural, with a magnificent physique and a fight- 
ing heart, that Rip should be an aggressive boxer and 
a not too gentle grid linesman. To say that Rip was a 
popular man at the Academy would be an understate- 
ment. He is a man's man, respected by his acquaint- 
ances and endeared to his friends.

MARTINSVILLE, VIRGINIA 

From the hills of Virginia come two things of note: 
moonshine and Minter. A strong exponent of the theory 
that haste makes waste, and ulcers, Bob long ago de- 
cided that no haste and no ulcers could possibly result 
from golf, and developed into a first-rate golfer. The 
plebe and varsity squads kept him busy during the 
spring, and managing the Batt team absorbed his efforts 
in the fall. One of his outstanding characteristics is his 
tenacity of purpose, which has marked his course 
through his entire cruise at Navy. Strictly a fly-boy at 
heart, R.O. will not be one to dally with sea duty any 
longer than necessary. He and his OAO have a 
standing date with the future, and may it be a bright 
and happy one for them both.

OAK HILL, OHIO 

Hal, who came from the small town of Oak Hill, set 
aside for a while his dreams of a small cottage and fire 
place to join the Navy. His first encounter with Uncle 
Sam was at Ohio Wesleyan University where he pur- 
sued naval subjects and the fairer sex. There he never 
seemed to find time to study; the ten to one ratio may 
have been the reason, for Hal was no Red Mike, cer- 
tainly. When it came to extracurricular activities here 
at Navy, he was content to take out one of many pipes, 
and read some philosophical book with a new slant on 
life. For exercise, he went to the boxing ring. For week- 
ends, Hal could usually be found dragging. His readi- 
ness to consider, honestly criticize, or uphold new ideas 
will carry him far. 



Jialph 9L tttuwphy 

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK 

Murph shedded a quartermaster third class rate when 
he joined us. He excelled in high school athletics: foot- 
ball, basketball, and track, in which he won an im- 
pressive Pentathlon award. The Navy did not give him 
much time to go to Swarthmore, but he was there long 
enough to pledge Delta Upsilon. Here at the Academy 
Murph put both musical and athletic ability to good 
use, making the plebe and varsity track squads, play- 
ing batt football, and joining the NA-10. The social 
background got full scope, too, with much free time 
spent in dragging and doing the necessary letter writ- 
ing. He entered on a regular Fleet Appointment and 
took the full entrance exams, something that gave him 
heart in academics. 



Q&nvqe £. <tltowgan 9 Jr. 

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN 

Morg ranks among the foremost in the esteem of his 
class. Respected for an amazingly quick mind and a 
great aptitude for any and all engineering subjects, he 
has always taken life seriously. Athletically, his interests 
were track and cross-country. As a letter man in high 
school, he found a background for competition in plebe 
and batt counterparts. Evening found him attending 
Math and Mechanical Engineering Clubs, with interest 
stimulated by a college background in the V-12 unit at 
Wisconsin's Lawrence College. He took time out at the 
Academy for sailing, to which he soon became an 
addict. Morg's future seemingly would point toward in- 
tense specialization in engineering, perhaps aeronautic- 
al, and, if his eyes permit, that future will be of Navy 
service.

The strains of "Maryland, My Maryland" aren't very 
stirring to most of us but there are a few who rise 
with pride at the sound. Needles has often risen for 
those strains, only to be voted "under." "Fish-head," as 
he was affectionately nicknamed, started playing with 
a lacrosse stick at a very tender age. At Baltimore Poly 
Tech, Needles won his first varsity letter, and has since 
added a couple of "N's" to his credit as a mainstay 
of the Navy varsity. Although a Navy Junior, Bob has 
been pointing toward the Marines. In addition to be- 
coming a sea-going soldier, Bob has his OAO waiting

also lived in sunny California for three years, but still 
claimed the Yukon as his home. He missed most the 
outdoor life, although he didn't mind skipping the cold 
weather. Dubbed "Showboat" while on youngster cruise, 
he was known to all by that monicker for the rest of 
his Academy days. For duty after graduation, Tom has 
his eye on duty above the sea— and plans on learning 
to fly for the Navy Air Corps. The small bit of flying 
here at the Academy coupled with carrier cruise has 
sold him on a long stretch up in the "wild blue yonder." 
With his abilities and interest, he should achieve success 
there. 



KEOKUK, IOWA 

George came to the Academy well salted down from 
his tour of duty at NAPS. His port of departure was 
out in the big river country where he had to stand on 
a table to tell the height of the corn. Plenty of mail 
and a beauty sleep each afternoon provided a well 
rounded day, with a drag or two filling out each week- 
end. Whether rolling across the soccer field, across 
home plate on the softball diamond, or in the Lord 
Baltimore, he was always in there helping the home 
team to score. George will be remembered for his jovial 
spirit and beautiful voice long after that buzzard on 
his sleeve changes to an eagle. His only complaint about 
the halls of Bancroft was that the decks were built too 
close to the seat of his pants.

AVONDALE, NORTH CAROLINA 

In 1945, the town of Avondale, North Carolina, gave 
up Owens and one shiny cornet to the Naval Academy. 
His slow drawl and easy Southern grin, have earned 
Andy a good number of friends everywhere but on the 
dance floor, where his classmates look with silent and 
envious awe upon his ability to charm the opposite 
sex. His efforts on the basketball courts and football 
fields made him an asset to the company's teams. 
Youngster Year the mischievous twinkle in his eye 
dimmed somewhat with the intricacies of high-pressure 
turbines, but he rallied to spread the famed Owens 
Charm in Scandinavia. "Drew" has always maintained 

that he is a "Tar-Heel born and bred and d — d 

proud of it!"; we might add, in turn, that Avondale, 
N.C., can be justly proud of Andy. 



John &£, l>4>ri%i§i%. Jr. 

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA 

Ham found it hard to settle down under the shackles 
of Navy life, after his previous college training in a 
fraternity house at the University of Alabama. Although 
a believer in physical culture, he felt that the boys were 
taking things a bit too far when they started pounding 
around the obstacle course before reveille. Things really 
came Ham's way during the cruises, for he was always 
the first midshipman down the gangway and the last 
to climb back aboard the liberty boat at night. New 
places and new faces always gave him a thrill that 
carried him right on through the Dark Ages. Ham had 
a clearcut formula for living; he believed that hard work 
was the only road to success. He was one of the few 
who, among other things, have learned how to live.

LONDONDERRY, NEW HAMPSHIRE 

From the rock-bound shores of New England comes our 
own "Pills", a bona fide embryo diplomat. Hampered 
slightly by a champagne taste on a Midshipman's in- 
come, he nevertheless succeeded in cultivating an en- 
gaging personality and a winning Colgate smile. A 
proponent of rest as the universal panacea, Gene 
exerted only enough ergs to help manage the varsity 
lacrosse squad, then retired to a position by the radiator. 
As treasurer of the Class Ring and Crest Committee, 
Gene hardly found time to "walk around electrical 
circuits"— a process he abhors to this day. A true 
"homme du monde," Gene will always be surrounded 
by good cheer and good friends— whether the coast 
be East or West.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

A true rebel of the old South, Eddie was born in At- 
lanta, and attended Russell High School and Georgia 
Military Academy before entering Georgia Tech, where 
he joined Sigma Phi Epsilon, and won his letter in rifle. 
Here Eddie distinguished himself in numerous battalion 
and company sports, winning numerals for his work in 
cross country. He also found pleasure in the Radio and 
Spanish Clubs, and, as a 'ham' radio operator, had his 
own station in East Point. A Spanish savvy, Eddie sur- 
prised many beautiful senoritas with his fluent use of 
their native language. That he did not confine himself 
solely to senoritas was shown by his locker door. After 
graduation, Eddie would like the Navy Air Corps. 



William <W. Potter 

SAUSALITO, CALIFORNIA 

Back in 1945 Bill packed up his troubles and boarded 
the Eastbound from Sausalito. He still has his troubles, 
but his friends enjoy his ever present smile. His adoles- 
cence was an active one, carrying him into various 
fields and academic distinction as a life-time member 
of his high school Honor Society. Too young for the 
service on graduation, he spent a year at Marin Junior 
College in the Bear State. During his four year sojourn 
at the Academy, Bill displayed an intensive affinity for 
athletics and the social life, while enduring slide rule 
races and bull classes. A master of the spicy, yet felic- 
itous tongue, Bill maintained that life is but a witty re- 
ply, a subtle hint, and a twinkle of the eye.

MEXICO, MISSOURI 

Not satisfied with the extensive number of scientific 
courses here, Bob found opportunity to continue his 
studies of industrial management, ceramics, and de- 
signing in the Mechanical Engineering Club. During 
second class summer leave, he further increased his 
knowledge by an industrial tour of the East. Bob took 
part in the intramural sports of swimming, football, and 
basketball. His quick opening line bucks and steady 
defensive play put him in the All-Batt-Halfback slot 
for two successive years. On occasions he came to social 
affairs, usually with a gal who was likely enough to be 
the "Drag of the Week." His practical intelligence and 
likeable nature will make him a valuable officer in 
Uncle Sam's Navy.

BAYSHORE, NEW YORK 

"Trust a man and you have a friend," an unconscious 
bit of the Reiss outlook, reflects Bob like his strong hand- 
shake or his friendly greeting. Pe— Pe has a firm con- 
viction that study and exercise, with the possible excep- 
tion of some varsity water polo, are only necessary 
evils to be endured from the vantage point of bed. 
His theories of health and sleep in no way affect his 
capacity for enjoying his weekends, which have the 
reputation for being most compact, if often hectic. An- 
other from that category, "late of the gay bachelor," 
Bob was convinced that his exploration of the domain 
of women is quite at an end. At home on skiis, behind 
a camera, or talking about his home state, Bob will 
always find life looking at him as he looks at it- 
straight and full.

KALISPELL, MONTANA 

When Bob arrived he immediately threw himself whole- 
heartedly into our activities. With the experience of 
announcing for his local radio station as well as for 
NBC station KGHL of Billings, Montana, and several 
awards for his outstanding oratorical abilities, he was 
a natural to succeed in these pursuits at the Academy, 
where his familiar, resonant voice boomed from the 
loudspeakers of the football stadiums. In winter Bob 
was occupied with basketball, debating, producing arti- 
cles for the TRIDENT, and guiding the destinies of the 
Hop Committee with a firm but sympathetic hand. In 
spite of all these activities, Bob gave much time to the 
welfare of his class, and we have always benefitted 
from the results of his remarkable talents.

FLINT, MICHIGAN 

"Injun" Harry"s first encounter with Uncle Sam took 
place at the local post-office, where, inspired to un- 
precedented heights by the stern gent with the accusing 
finger on an Army recruiting poster, he offered his 
services to the Army Air Corps. After a short tour of 
basic came the continuous storm that was Air Cadet 
training, interrupted by Severn's call, at which Harry 
traded his 2000-hour cap for the Blue and Gold. Plebe 
Year found Harry on the company's cross-country and 
steeplechase squads— later there was a tour of duty with 
the varsity starboat sailors. As he is partial to everything 
associated with flying, it is not surprising that Harry's 
goal is the air corps. His sense of purpose and keen 
sense of humor will assure for him a successful career.

MORGANVILLE, KANSAS 

Having been nurtured in the vicissitudes of human ex- 
istence for seventeen years amid the colorful society 
and nightlife of a hometown of 283 people, Ivan em- 
erged into the world, and found refuge in V-12 at Ohio 
Wesleyan University before Navy. On weekdays Ive 
would play the double bell euphonium in the concert 
band. Sundays he would lend his musical talents to the 
choir. When it was possible to slip away from the num- 
erous practices required, Chip's skillful handling of the 
penknife brought forth a fine display of ship and air- 
craft models. His talented toe and aggressiveness 
helped win many victories for our company soccer team. 
After graduation Ivan would like to enter Navy research. 
A man with his energy and talent should go far.

EDGEWATER, NEW JERSEY 

A true son of the Hudson river, Sandy could usually 
be found writing a letter or worrying about the team's 
chances against "them bums." Sandy came to the 
Academy straight from the school often better known 
as the Colonel's, and whenever a group gathered he was 
sure to be in the middle telling stories about "the good 
old days," about "ropes" and smoking jackets. No Dago 
slash, Sandy's only academic worry was his two year 
battle with the Spanish Department. He found time to 
be loyal to the Hudson and go out for plebe and batt 
swimming, where he held down the relay spot. He also 
lent a hand to the waterpolo, softball and football teams. 
Practically a married man, Sandy plans to combine grad- 
uation with marriage followed by a regular line com- 
mission. 



CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

To Mr. and Mrs. Louis Lotito of Chicago, his parents, the 
Navy football team is in good hands whenever Pat is 
in the game. And they are right too, for their Missouri 
Military Academy, USMC alumnus son does the football 
sport and the Naval Academy proud. An ex-sergeant 
with twenty-five months' service, Pat again returns to the 
Corps. It was hard to find a sport he did not excel in, 
for football was his first love, then wrestling, followed 
by lacrosse, boxing, and track in any order. Neither 
his military nor academic duties ever suffered inordi- 
nately, for he never neglected essentials for a moment. 
Pat, who was born in Marl, Westfalen, Germany and 
moved to this country when two years old, is the class 
of 1949's only naturalized citizen.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Having seen the world under the cognizance of the 
Marine Corps ever since birth, Gim early decided upon 
his vocation. He has settled down only long enough to 
have high school in San Diego, his adopted home. Gim 
will not only be remembered for his likeable traits, but 
also for his one bad habit— cigarette bumming. Early 
every fall, Spider would have the plebes spooned for 
rooms around, in hopes of securing another happy hunt- 
ing ground! Two big blows came to Gim while at the 
Academy, the first coming when, as an aspirant at la- 
crosse he was hit by a flailing stick, and the second 
when he received the "Dear John" from his OAO. These 
calamities have not, however, hampered his desire to 
become a Marine officer. 



Walter 0M. Sehriefer 

OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN 

Walt never travelled far for education until the Navy 
claimed him, attending high school at home and major- 
ing for two years in Mechanical Engineering at Gustavus 
Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. In high school 
and college, he leaned towards basketball and tennis, 
though in college he also played baseball, earning 
letters both places. Walt attended Midshipman and 
Naval Reserve programs at Princeton and Columbia 
Universities, then entered the Academy on a college 
certificate. Tennis was his first sport, playing for the 
plebe squad his first year. He traded uniforms season- 
ally for company and batt basketball, football, and 
handball, finding time to lend a good clear voice to 
the Naval Academy choir.

Another victim of the double initial nickname, Tom, 
T-Squared, or Turn-To, brought to the Academy two 
particularly forceful causes, the incomparable OAO, 
and his home town. Characteristic force dominates all 
he does. Academics were consistently vanquished in a 
one-sided encounter, and batt sports felt his drive. Tom 
put previous training at Western Reserve Academy to 
good use in battalion football, following this with plebe 
and batt track achievements. Tom, since the first me- 
morable ride, has had the Naval Air Corps as an ulti- 
mate goal, and since class standing and physical re- 
quirements play a big part in acceptance to future duty, 
he seems destined to go there.

CHRISTIANSBURG, OHIO 

For his Ohio, Shep had the chamber of commerce touch, 
and, in defense of his large meals enjoyed without 
shoes, he insisted that indigestion was an evil resulting 
from tight shoes. Although usually relaxed, the "Little 
Giant" played batt football, track, and golf, justifying 
his relaxation by his N*'s in pistol, the nerveless sport. 
By contributing a resounding baritone to the Glee Club 
and choir, singing with the latter several times at the 
White House. Another dear love was dancing. A great 
fellow and a true bon vivant, Shep has secured the 
reputation of being a jovial, affable man with a Shavian 
disregard for conventions. This disregard, however, has 
never altered his approach to serious things, and we 
predict for Shep a successful and happy career.

DUNKIRK, NEW YORK 

No one will ever know what kept Earl from the evils 
of the Greylegs, for he spent a year at Braden Prep, 
right under the shadows of West Point. His high stand- 
ing in his class speaks well of his academic prowess. 
In athletics, Earl was no radiator man. He tackled 
varsity rifle and crew, and gave a welcome hand at 
company basketball, steeplechase, and soccer. Extra- 
curricular activties such as the LOG, LUCKY BAG, and 
Christmas Card and Reception Committees took much 
of his spare time. In all of his activities, his quiet, force- 
ful manner won him many friends. He was one of the 
few who did not lose his OAO during his stint on the 
Severn. Earl has his father's understanding of business, 
and hopes to join the Supply Corps on graduation. 



C {Ray Smith* Jr. 

FLORENCE, SOUTH CAROLINA 

South Carolina suffered a real loss in 1945 when Ray 
packed up and moved to Bancroft Hall. Thus was started 
four years of passive resistance in a madly rushing place. 
Somehow, though, this southern gentleman managed to 
make out. C. Ray's passive resistance program was aided 
by three years at Marion Military Institute, where he 
starred in engineering and military science. Presumably 
it was also at Marion that his hairline started to look 
suspiciously like it might jump to the top of his head. 
One of C. Ray's passions was flying, and his most en- 
joyable duty tour was on second class cruise when he 
had an opportunity to do a little Navy cloud hopping.

EAST McKEESPORT, PENNSYLVANIA 

A quiet humor that smiled at the rough stretches and 
chuckled elsewhere was as fundamentally Steg as his 
nearly unpronounceable name. This easy wit was al- 
ways an ally with blind drags, whose continual succes- 
sion seemed only to add to his life claim to the rose- 
scented brick. His size, Steg claimed, was ideal in any 
sport, particularly his favorite, squash; for his opponent, 
in trying to find him, was always at a disadvantage. 
An ample book larnin' staged most of the Quag's fights 
with the academics, leaving time for happier pursuits, 
such as second tenor in the Glee Club. With his com- 
paniable nature as sure a comrade as his many friends, 
Steg will find his career rewarding him as he has 
answered its call, freely and with a smile. 



Milan <ttl. Stewart 

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK 

After about eight months' service with two and one-half 
months overseas in the Marines, there is just one guess 
as to the immediate future of Stew, who went to VMI 
for a hitch before the Corps claimed him. Despite every 
effort to relax and write to women, he still managed to 
do well academically, to do some mean kicking on the 
soccer team, and to work in some lacrosse and company 
sports to boot. At VMI he belonged to a subversive or- 
ganization named the Yankee Club that seemed to have 
colored his personality; he began to extol the North, 
and still does. Despite this social error he was liked by 
everyone, for he genuinely combined strict attention to 
duty and easy friendliness. 



(Robert <tti. Spencer 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH 

Although he had entered the Academy from high school, 
Bob was never bothered by Academics, and spent his 
spare time in sports and bridge. Often before a big 
quiz, however, his room looked like an extra-instruction 
classroom, with Bob giving forth on how to do the probs. 
He was an exponent of the beauty of Western girls, 
backing up his stand with the pictures that decorated 
his locker. Probably his most notable stories were those 
of skiing thrills high in the Rockies. His quietness and 
modesty have won him many friends here who will 
never forget him. These qualities will stand by him in 
the Air Corps, to which he looks forward on graduation. 
Regardless of his field, however, he has the best wishes 
of his classmates for success.

Forthright individualism and a love of any humorous 
situation allow Chuck to enjoy fully the important oc- 
casions of any Navy year— the liberty; and his marking 
time between liberties was interrupted only long enough 
to win varsity letters in soccer and lacrosse. Studies and 
regulations, regarded as troublesome trivialities, never 
interfered with Honest John O'Stiles' arranging the de- 
tails of his inevitable big deals. At more serious mo- 
ments, Chuck found that the three years he had spent 
as an enlisted man and AVCAD were providing both the 
background and goal of his efforts. With his inherent 
luck and limitless energy, Chuck has more than he needs 
lo win those wings of gold.

With a bland smile on his face, and a lacrosse stick 
in his hand, Willie wandered into our midst back in the 
summer of '45. Rather quiet and modest, Bill hid his 
prowess as a ham-and-egger until the spring of Plebe 
Year, although a knee injury kept him out of action most 
of that year and the next. W-see's tangles with the 
academic department consistently found him winner, 
with time left over to be an interested member of the 
Mechanical Engineering club. Although there was a 
time when he nearly got hooked, no Femme Fatale has 
entered Willie's young life, despite the many queens he 
has dragged. His Chesterfieldian manners and true 
graciousness will make Will's life ahead a pleasure for 
both himself and his associates. 






Phillip m. Suhw 

MARIETTA, GEORGIA 

"That's out west somewhere," was always Phil's designa- 
tion for anything west of Washington, as his primary 
interest in the great world was always directed toward 
Georgia's Gem City. Without much strain in Academics, 
he usually managed to stay somewhere ahead of the 
trees. He always got in his share of sailing, earning his 
yawl command Plebe Year, and getting a real taste of 
salt on the race to Bermuda Youngster Summer. When 
not sailing, he could usually be found over in the fenc- 
ing loft, working for an N to sew on his B-robe. The 
possibility of catching a little "flyboy" duty appealed 
to Phil, but whether he gets it or not, he can be counted 
on to make a good showing in the Fleet.

Careful always to say about the "house" without any 
distinguishing accent. Gene nevertheless is a Virginian 
through and through. From Wytheville, his next alma 
mater was the distinguished VMI, where a year and a 
half as a Chemistry major prepared him to wear easily 
the stars for Naval Academy academic excellence. 
While in high school, Gene earned two letters in foot- 
ball with playing that won him a place on the famous 
150's while at Annapolis. His was a fighting addition to 
the fighting light-weight team, which came into being 
during his Academy career. When Gene was not work- 
ing hard at football, he undertook batt tennis and 
jumped into extra-curricular activities by doing unsung 
chores with the business gang of the Combined Musical 
Clubs.

MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA 

The pride of Madison came to the Academy directly 
from high school, but his record gave warning that the 
college boys would have to strain. Valedictorian, stu- 
dent body president, and captain of the football, 
basketball, and track teams were a few of Jerry's ac- 
complishments. During Youngster Year he pitched every 
ball of the game for the 13th Company championship 
softball team. As a second classman he was chosen as 
guard on the "All Brigade" football team. Probably 
the thing about Jerry that his classmates remember best 
is the fact that hardly a day went by without someone 
pulling a gag at his expense. Yet no matter how foul 
the trick, or how often attempted, it just wasn't possible 
tor Jerry to become seriously angry.

Fred (Atrocious) Troescher rolled into Navy via a musi-

He joined the Forty-niners, our plebe band, and then 
entered the NA-10 and the Concert Band when '49 
joined the brigade. Two years of jumping back and 
forth in the Musical Club Shows persuaded him to give 
up the Concert band in favor of the music column of 
the LOG. On cruise he always gave happy hours a 
boost with his smooth trombone. Fred also dabbled with 
the diodes, as a member of the Radio Club. He seemed 
able to always pop a pun just when the Execs' latest 
strategy had the boys bewildered. This trait also en- 
deared him to the femmes, but he managed to keep 
them away, as was proved by his charter membership 
in the flying squadron.

When you can pry Bill from his letters to Chicago, you 
will find one of the Academy's outstanding star men. 
From Northwestern University, Bill began to sell Chi- 
cago, the Middle West, and photography with gusto. 
He tried his hand at most of the company sports, picked 
up the class numerals, and added to the points with 
typical casualness. Sometimes he tried the bowling 
game, sometimes even billiards, but most of all he and 
his wife were snapping pictures without warning, and 
more than once without posing. The sack beckoned 
early each day; very seldom did the taps inspector 
have to shut off the midnight oil. Bill could be truly 
galvanized into action only at mail-call and chow, 
where he took a good full share of both. 



BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 

When long Doc Trueblood shook the limestone dust 
of Indiana off his feet and headed for Annapolis, he 
brought with him a background of three semesters at 
Indiana University. Doc soon showed that he meant 
to keep up the good start he had made there as a 
member of the freshman honor fraternity. He also 
found time to keep his hand in on one of the Bancroft 
Steinways, and he had no trouble finding plenty of 
girls to tag along with his long stride on dragging week- 
ends. One of True's biggest thrills came at the end of 
Youngster Year. After all spring, the crew coach moved 
him up to the junior varsity boat just before the 
Poughkeepsie Regatta. Thus Doc rowed his first inter- 
collegiate race in Navy's J-V boat which took second 
place in that division of the world-famous regatta.

MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT 

Days as an aircrewman and an abiding love of salt 
water have combined to provide both the remembrance 
and the incentive that have given Jack his goal. He had 
not been here long before his classmates discovered an 
enduring determination that was as much a part of 
him as the shy quiet with that bespoke a New England 
heritage. This same determination had to be credited, 
at least partly, for Jack's continuing status of "strictly 
attached," no mean feat for four long years. Jack was 
a firm believer in exercise, and he bore both Navy's 
and company's standards in the van of many a race. 
One single thing tells why Jack had the respect and 
friendship of all— a smile runs all through his life.

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA 

The brother who graduated with the class of '42 may 
or may not be the reason why Jim shifted his "Blue 
and Gold" from the University of California (Berkeley) 
to the Naval Academy, bringing with him the ability to 
see humor everywhere, plus a keen desire to take no 
noticeable strain. Plebe and Youngster Years found 
"The Wat" and his exhuberant wife, Fred Fisher, agreed 
that there is no coast like the West Coast. Interspersed 
with this loyalty were frequent visits to Hubbard Hall 
and scenic College Creek, where Jamie bent an oar 
with the other varsity crew men. Always fond of flying, 
he was in his element on 2/c cruise . . . the future should 
find Jamie with a pair of gold wings and a permanent 
residence in Pasadena. 



Kithuwd £. Whiteside 

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA 

Salty Dick Whiteside came to Navy straight from de- 
stroyer duty in the North Atlantic. With his chest lead- 
ing by a hair, "the brace" has sailed through four years, 
leaving in his wake a trail of sea stories, each better 
than the last. In sports, although kept from the varsities 
by an injured knee, he has often lent the strength that 
turned the tide in many company soccer, football, and 
softball games. Since the Old Navy always knows the 
ropes, it was only natural for Dick to acquire a crab 
during his stay here. He wants destroyer duty on gradu- 
ation, later to enter aviation, and someday to command 
a destroyer of his own.

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

The LUCKY BAG is greatly indebted to Big Ed for re- 
naming so many of his friends with the products of a 
very fertile brain. In fact, there are few of the "Camel's" 
acquaintances who still retain their given names when 
addressed by him. Ed spends a good deal more time 
dreaming up pranks, tinkering with his cameras, and 
reading than he does studying, although he is rightly 
respected as a brain. Big Ed has tried most every sport 
at some time, helping at company football, battalion 
squash, and gym. His major accomplishment, however, 
has been in lacrosse, in which, starting new plebe sum- 
mer, he ended up a permanent fixture on the varsity. 
Wherever you go in the Fleet, Ed, your old buddies and 
new friends will welcome you.

HAMPTON, VIRGINIA 

"You mean we've got a steam quiz next period?" often 
issued from Chas about twenty minutes before one of 
those too frequent inquisitions from said department. 
Always easygoing, Charlie never let academics worry 
him too much— maybe because he had had such a good 
start at VMI. Not a charter member of the radiator 
squad, but an active one nonetheless, Charlie vied 
with the regulars in that strenuous sack duty. He couldn't 
exactly be called a Red Mike— he dragged at least once 
a year, regularly! Always ready with a smile for all, 
Charlie was without a doubt one of the most popular 
members of the company, and his good humor and 
readiness to lend a helping hand will stand him in good 
stead for those thirty years he plans to spend in the 
Fleet.

Carl m. Wilson 

MILLEDGEVILLE, GEORGIA 

Carl came to the Naval Academy well prepared for the 
military life of the Navy. With two years at the Georgia 
Military College behind him, the Major has assumed the 
position of the company's leading authority on strategy 
and tactics. A firm disciplinarian himself, the Major has 
had no difficulty adapting his routine to the system. 
Plebe Year he rowed battalion crew, and four times he 
was one of the big guns on the company soccer squad. 
Carl's interest in sports extended beyond the Academy, 
and at home he hunted and fished a good deal. In 
spite of a busy schedule, he found plenty of time to 
spend with his OAO. Good luck to you, Carl, when 
you venture forth on the briny deep and the sea of 
matrimony. 



John C. Witton 

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA 

"FORE!" Whether on the golf course or off, that might 
have been J. C.'s battle cry, for if it was a slow four- 
some ahead or a tough problem he was working, J. C. 
gave warning and plowed right in. He was no novice 
to the Academy style of life, as he had already gradu- 
ated from Culver and had spent a year and a half at 
Davidson. At Navy, J. C. was able to take off enough 
time from the routine to keep his golf game in top form 
to compete with the better linksmen. He has played 
plebe, battalion, and varsity golf both fall and spring 
of all four years, with pushball in the winter. Although 
John hasn't dragged as much as some, he has followed 
the tradition of the true Southern gentleman, and 
dragged only Southern belles.

Robert 08. Wishvrd 

QUINCY, ILLINOIS 

"Boy! This is a wonderful life here at Navy!" How 
many times have we heard Wish make that profound 
statement? Somehow, Wish always managed to be in 
gay spirits, and tried to keep others just as cheerful. 
His good nature, however, could have been deceiving, 
as he was one of the toughest of the varsity wrestlers, 
having begun at Penn State, continued on the plebe 
team, and finished by winning "N's" for three years on 
the varsity. Out of season he has kept in condition with 
company soccer and daily trips to the gym. In spite of 
his athletic prowess, he dragged a good deal, and was 
a smooth dancer and quite an operator. With his keen 
interest in Naval work and deep love for the Service, 
Bob will have a highly successful career. 



David J. QVoodard 

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO 

From the oldest city in the U.S. came the incomparable 
"Mole." Boasting a year at Texas A. & M., he came 
to "Naval" from the Army R.O.T.C. where, he claimed, 
the plebe system of the Navy would be considered tame. 
Not a member of the radiator squad, Woody, after 
A. & M., continued his ventures on the cinder path until 
second class year when he abandoned the spikes for 
the football cleats of the 150 pound footballers. With 
all this there was still time to be devoted to his best 
loved diversions, and the hours not spent in slumber 
were quite naturally given to the charms of numerous 
OAO's (one among others). He will long be remembered 
for laughs with his wives, a twinkling pair of blue eyes, 
and the conviction that life is just a bowl of enchiladas.

MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA 

Although his rebel roommate called Harry's native state 
the "Yukon," Harry always liked the "cool" winters 
and inviting summers. In high school, he won letters in 
basketball, football, and track, captaining the former 
two, and during his two years at college, he won letters 
and all-conference awards in basketball, while life- 
guarding in the summers. Here he continued his work 
in basketball as a high-scoring guard for the varsity, 
and would have been diving for the varsity swimmers, 
had not that season coincided with the basketball time. 
Harry will have no trouble making good in anything 
he decides to do, for he has the spirit, ability, and de- 
termination to succeed.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

As an alumnus of New York Military Academy, Ted was 
accustomed to avoiding the wrath of the execs. Two 
years at New York U. gave him a good background, 
and after plebe steam his academic troubles ceased. In 
company sports, Ted played fieldball, pushball, and 
soccer. As Company LOG representative, he sweated 
over LOG subscription payments, getting his revenge, 
however, when, as LUCKY BAG representative, he was 
responsible for the company's biographies. Cruises al- 
ways seemed especially long to "the Bear;" his sack 
was always farthest from a fan, and he never failed to 
get the bottom locker in a main passageway. Ted's 
graduation brings him double happiness because now 
he takes the long awaited step with his OAO. 



DEXTER, MISSOURI 

Bob, feeling that any mark above 2.5 gave the differ- 
ence to the Academic departments, never yielded to the 
temptation of giving anything to Math or Steam. A 
talented pianist, he once won a prize playing back home. 
Coming to the Academy after two years of college and 
a hitch in the Army, Bob is a career man. The fact that 
he sweated out Plebe Christmas here at Navy tells us 
that he has the determination as well as the ability and 
desire to be one. We will always remember Bob for 
his quick wit and his ability to tag someone with an 
appropriate nickname; we will remember him as one 
at whose room we would stop to have a friendly chat 
and a smoke. We say "au revoir" and good luck to a 
fine classmate. 



(Richard XI Mun&w 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Dick came to us from the Sunshine State after having 
attended Roosevelt High, Territory of Hawaii, and 
prepped at Severn School, where he lettered in football 
and lacrosse. Having grown up swimming on the 
beaches of the West Coast and Honolulu, he still rated 
this sport high among his favorites. Besides lacrosse 
and swimming, one of his favorite pastimes was read- 
ing and you could find him in the sack most any study 
hour reading his favorite books. No Red Mike, Agates 
played the field when it came to the girls— a true ex- 
plorer. This itinerant member of the California Chamber 
of Commerce has made friends since he has been in the 
East, but take it from him, he is a true son of the West 
and wants to return there some day. 





104 





COOKEVILLE, TENNESSEE 

Max reduced the population of his birthplace, Cooke- 
ville, to 6999 when he came to Navy. Drawing on high 
school experience, he played center for the batt football 
teams and did a fine job of it. He also held down the 
center spot when his company won the heavyweight 
football championship. Lacrosse came natural to him 
and he spent several seasons throwing that little ball 
around. He and his wife were exposed to too many 
rebel history books during their younger days, so any 
time you want to know who really won the Great War, 
just ask them. No matter where Max is sent in the Navy, 
you can be sure of one thing, he will be able to take 
care of himself. If you want to stay a friend of his, just 
don't say anything against the South. 



SELMA, ALABAMA 

Having come to us as one of the saltiest bell-bottomed, 
winged hat boys you ever saw, straight from a year of 
V-5, A. J. quickly acquired a long string of cognomens 
ranging from Tommy and Adge all the way down to 
Blimpo and Ebony. When routed from his horizontal 
engineering, he lugged the leather as a batt football 
fullback, left pounds in the handball courts, and filled 
out his time breaking par on the links and floating his 
"oh, so slow" one past opposing softball batters. Since 
the day Electromotive Atkins touched off the Juice lab, 
almost scratching one Juice prof, we made him wear his 
rubbers even when he tuned the radio. Although he 
had a Yankee for a wife, A. J. never once surrendered 
the sovereignty of Dixie. 



John M. JWora, Jr. 

EAST AURORA, NEW YORK 

"Roger" came to the ranks of the regular Navy with a 
camera under one arm and a squash racket under the 
other. His room was always ready to be transformed 
at a moment's notice into a photographic studio, and 
the results of his skill now grace many albums of his 
classmates. Besides being known as a bridge shark, 
he gained notoriety for his last-minute dashes to break- 
fast formation. His splendid scalp massages were cred- 
ited with saving several cases of baldness. Possessing 
a truly independent spirit, his complaints against the 
system were voluminous, yet his loyalty and patriotism 
were unsurpassed. He hopes to enter some line of the 
judicial branch of the Navy.

John CL I)iMfu% 

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK 

Born and bred in the invigorating climate of upstate 
New York, "Banjo" came to the Naval Academy directly 
from the enlisted ranks. His love for running won him 
berths on the track and cross country squads where he 
regularly expended his excess energy. His most impor- 
tant love, however, is for a certain southern belle who 
was always faithful with her daily letters. Each year 
found Banjo in some manner participating in the various 
musical shows, providing support for the baritone section 
of the Glee Club. Along with singing, he kept himself 
busy playing the snare drum in the Drum and Bugle 
Corps. Banjo's ready smile and open friendliness won 
him many friends while here at Navy. We wish him luck 
and a happy life. 



LAKE BLUFF, ILLINOIS 

Bob breezed into USNA with a big smile and a long line 
of baloney. Probably no room in the Academy has 
ever provided more laughs than that of Bob, Grab, 
and Joe. Who can forget the episode of the steerage 
fan which kept their room cool during the hot Youngster 
June Week? Nor will we forget the efforts of Commoque 
Eastlant to remove Bob from our midst via the papsheet 
route and our boy's successful efforts of evasion. Bob's 
academic efforts have been limited to thinking about 
the possibilities of studying but despite this he stood 
near the top of his class. Seriously though, Bob's affable 
manner and unusual resourcefulness will insure his suc- 
cess in any undertaking.

RITTMAN, OHIO 

Bill not only was an ex-corporal of the Gyrene Corps 
and didn't care who knew it, but has not let his spirit for 
the corps lessen during his four years in the Navy. Dur- 
ing Plebe Year, the Boon had to take quite a bit of 
guff due to his loyalty to the Marines, but he managed 
it all with a smile. His constant thirst for knowledge 
developed in him the book habit. He read anything and 
everything, but preferred the heavier stuff: economics 
and philosophy. As he read, he played classical music 
—"study music," he called it. In the athletic line, he en- 
gaged in soccer, wrestling, or tennis, each time just 
enough for a good workout. During Second Class Year, 
he became treasurer for the Trident Society, and his 
attention to those duties demanded much of his time 
during the afternoons.

William IV. ffirandfan 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

Bill is the man who never left Brooklyn although he has 
traveled far and wide. At seventeen he joined the 
Army and spent months in the mud of the Southland 
before transferring to the Navy to attend NAPS. He was 
devoted to the game of baseball and its leading team, 
the Dodgers. Here he has fulfilled the job as manager 
of Navy's baseball team. Although he did not drag 
much, his good nature stood him in good stead with 
members of both sexes. Bill was always the optimist, 
be it baseball, the Navy, or an extension of leave. In 
just managing to keep his head above water, he stood 
well in the first half of his class. As he is fine officer ma- 
terial from head to foot, his prospects in the Navy look 
very good. 






(Philip CL ffirannon 

BARNWELL, SOUTH CAROLINA 

Phil's two years at Georgia Military College taught him 
how to evade such monsters as the execs, for he was 
the only man who could curl up under the turned-back 
bedclothes and convince the O.D. that all were turned 
out. Having served with the fleet and V-12, Phil had 
background and always went into final exams with 
gravy . . . how he did it was Phil's own secret, for mostly 
he never cracked his books more than ten minutes. He 
was on the plebe and varsity track teams, winning sev- 
eral numerals, and also ran on the battalion track, and 
company steeplechase and cross country teams, as well 
as playing golf. Phil's heart has always been with the 
Marine Corps, his father's former branch of service. 



Jranli P. j?>ioig at, Jr. 

BERLIN, NEW JERSEY 

A crack shot from the Marine Corps, the "rotund one" 
started his Navy career as a consistent placer on the rifle 
team. During his youngster cruise he spent most of his 
time hanging far out over the rail and wishing he were 
still a "gyrene." Ever the one to keep well informed on 
current events. Brownie was often caught quoting his 
Podunk's periodical, the Berlin Breeze, which blew in 
once a week. Academics and books never scared 
Brownie, although it was usually the reveille bell which 
brought life to them both. His chief complaint was, "If 
this hair doesn't stop falling out, I'll soon be combing 
the comb." He always felt that a smile was useless with- 
out a good belly laugh, much to the enjoyment of his 
classmates— who wish him all success.

TYLER, TEXAS 

Buck came to Navy via Tyler High School and Tyler 
Junior College, where he had learned all about Texas, 
and nothing about the great world. As he will tell you, 
he was surprised to find that there was more to the 
United States than roses and sand. Academics never 
seemed to trouble Buck much, and he found time to 
participate in many extra-curricular activities, among 
which were Glee Club, Quarterdeck Society, Portuguese 
Club, and the Orchestra. Although his main sport was 
wrestling in his room, he was active also in company 
sports, especially cross country and softball. We will 
always remember Buck and Texas. We know he will be 
well received wherever he goes, and wish him well.

"The Butch" came to us from the heart of the Golden 
State via the NROTC at the University of Washington. 
Passionately interested in politics, he gained the name 
of the "legislator" by virtue of his lengthy and intense 
arguments on political subjects. Never late to a meal 
formation, he was one of the world's largest consumers 
of food. Despite his scorn for those weaklings who 
succumbed to womanly wiles, he was often seen with 
some sweet young thing on the dance floor. During his 
stay at the Academy he has been one of the mainstays 
of the pistol team. Coming from a long line of chief 
engineers, it is not surprising that he plans on entering 
some engineering branch of the Navy. 



M)onatd Ml. Camphdl 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

Don flew into the Naval Academy on the wings of the 
Naval Air Corps in which he was an air crewman. He 
soon won the friendship of his classmates by his quiet, 
sincere manner and his willingness to work for a good 
cause. This characteristic was particularly noticeable in 
his good academic standing. Don's main interest in 
New York still appears to be the lovely young lady 
from Brooklyn whom he plans to marry on graduation. 
A final part of his life here has been concerned with 
athletics— the cross country squad since Plebe Year, and 
batt sports as well. Don is well on his way to a suc- 
cessful naval career, preferably in the Air Corps, and 
will go far with his winning personality.

PORTSMOUTH, VIRGINIA 

Before entering the Academy, Don attended Severn, 
where he played football and varsity lacrosse. He con- 
tinued playing lacrosse here on the plebe and battalion 
teams, winning three numerals, and also participated in 
company steeplechase, soccer, fieldball, and cross coun- 
try. A menace with a guitar and an off-key voice, on 
cruise Moonbeam did his best to entertain us with hill- 
billy songs, but spent most of his spare time in his bunk 
or taking lessons in card-playing. At the Academy, Don 
found little necessity for poring over his textbooks and 
got by with a minimum of effort, spending his study 
hours writing letters to his many drags. Never one to 
let a tough situation dismay him, Don will always suc- 
ceed, no matter how rough the going. 



Ix»b<nl H. Cartmilt 

TULSA, OKLAHOMA 

Entering the Naval Academy by way of Radio Tech- 
nicians School, "Baz" managed to weather the more 
disagreeable aspects of the system. Gifted with intense 
powers of concentration, and a fierce determination to 
maintain the highest level in every pursuit he undertook, 
the possessor of Tulsa's most off key voice gave the 
Academic Departments a severe drubbing, starring every 
year. Time has meant so much to him that he is actu- 
ally known to have expressed a desire (believe it or not) 
to be able to devote part of his precious sack time to 
the further development of his mind. We're willing to 
bet a lot more than those two Oklahoma mils that he 
will succeed in whatever field he enters. 



Witlawd W. ClawU 9 Jr. 

MACEDON, NEW YORK 

Tall, quiet, and inoffensive, Willard came to Navy from 
Macedon, which he asserts is the only town in New 
York to maintain a population of 500 for half a century. 
As a member of the V-12 and NROTC, he attended 
Syracuse University, Union College, and Holy Cross, 
which he left abruptly in the summer of '45 to journey 
to the banks of the Severn and become a Midshipman, 
USN. Although he could not be called a Red Mike, Will 
did not go for the ladies too much. He more or less 
abided by the old maxim, "women are a snare and a 
delusion, . . . ," and preferred to spend his leisure 
evenings in earnest discussions of politics. Will is a typi- 
cal Navy man, one who always plans to resign, but 
never quite gets around to it.

CROCKETT, TEXAS 

An easy-going East Texan who takes life as it comes, 
Neal came to Navy to tell the boys about a continent 
called Texas. He entered the Academy fortified against 
the Academic Departments with a background of knowl- 
edge accumulated at previously attended universities. He 
had had one year at Texas University, where he was a 
Kappa Alpha, and had attended George Washington 
University in Washington, D. C, for a year and a half. 
Neal's home town of Crockett is quite proud of him, as 
he was president of the Senior Class of Crockett High 
5chool and a member of the Student Council for two 
years. He made a 49 during Plebe Year as a crew cox- 
swain, then decided that dragging was much more pleas- 
ant. He has been very active in company and batt 
sports since then.

DENVER, COLORADO 

Although a Texan by birth, Bill hailed from Denver and 
was given less to boasting than most Texans. With no 
college experience before coming to Navy— his time had 
been spent in the Infantry— Bill did well in his academics, 
despite his spending a minimum of time over books 
and keeping occupied by listening to records and burn- 
ing up the telephone wires between Annapolis and 
Washington. Most of his afternoons were spent on Far- 
ragut Field with battalion lacrosse, company football, 
cross country, and the extra duty squad. Bill's hobbies 
were shooting, ice-skating, and mountain-climbing— nat- 
urals for his home state. After four years of waiting, 
the day has now come for Bill to walk up that middle 
aisle with his OAO.

MAYWOOD, CALIFORNIA 

Rick was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, 
and, coming from the sunshine state, he was particularly 
critical of the cold Maryland winter. Before entering the 
Navy, he majored in Chemistry at Pomona College. 
After a tour of duty at Great Lakes and Camp Peary, 
he came to the banks of the Severn where his broad 
shoulders and long arms soon won him a place on the 
fencing team. A great believer of mind over matter, 
Rick could often be found reading the higher works of 
philosophy and psychology. Youngster Year he won his 
"Toga" at St. John's. Rick enjoyed classical music and 
also developed talent as an artist. Conversely, steam 
was his strongest subject and yet, Rick would like to 
test his abilities in the foreign service.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

A true Westerner, Bob constantly maintained that the 
best part of the country was all west of the Rockies. 
At least, nowhere else could he have had better op- 
portunities to engage in his favorite pastimes of skiing 
and fishing for the famous northwest King salmon. An 
ardent lover of all sports, Bob was tough competition 
in handball or tennis, won numerals in plebe track and 
company soccer and softball, and also played company 
football. A year at Rutherford Prep in Long Beach left 
Bob well prepared, and he had little trouble with the 
academics. Having logged more than two hundred 
hours flying commercially to and from leaves, Bob hopes 
to go into Naval Aviation where the rides are free.

Harv was the sailing expert of the company and spent 
most of his recreation time battling the elements on 
Chesapeake Bay, winning four N's with several stars as 
momentos of Navy's victories over the Army. A true sea 
dog, he spent Second Class Christmas sailing in the Ba- 
hamas with his father. During the winter months, Harv 
ran steeplechase and played pushball and fieldball. 
He did his share of studying, and was stymied only once 
—by Plebe Steam. In his attempts to be a language 
slash Rufo joined the Spanish club. During leaves home 
in Mamaroneck, when his time was not taken up with his 
OAO, he enjoyed going duck hunting. Since the days 
of sail are over, Harv will settle for a P.T. boat in Long 
Island Sound. 



SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

One of the shorter members of our class, "The Horn," 
better known as "Fee," entered our ranks as a Navy 
Junior with a hard-won Presidential appointment. His 
small stature and quiet manner were by no means a 
true measure of the real Fee, for behind these masks 
one could find all the attributes essential to any Naval 
officer. He was active in company sports, giving a help- 
ing hand in soccer and cross country. If hunting and 
fishing had been Naval Academy sports, Fee would 
probably have been captain of both teams, for in them 
his main interest lies. We have all been proud to know 
Fee as our classmate, and know that wherever he goes 
in the Navy, his job will be well done.

When this rugged little guy showed up on the Severn, 
he immediately made his presence known and his fight- 
ing spirit respected. Though professing to be an incor- 
rigible loafer, Donny was always available either for 
heart to heart talks about sports, home, or women. He 
probably holds a course record for lost golf balls, plus 
another record for solid enjoyment of the game, as he 
spent many afternoons battling his way around the 
North Severn links. Don really knew his way around in 
the cockpit of a star boat, and was a valuable hand in 
the Stage Gang. The Deedleman managed to keep that 
distinctive nose above the black waters of academics but 
not without giving it a fight. A fellow we like to be with

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA 

"Pass the Joe, please"— these immortal words, typically 
Navy, are even more typically Dalrymple. For the last 
four years, those were his first words in the morning 
and his last at night. Jack hails from California but spent 
most of his youth travelling over enough of the U. S. to 
be able to wear the title, Citizen-at-Large. Before join- 
ing the Navy, he attended St. Mary's College in Cali- 
fornia. A year later he passed the fleet exams for en- 
trance to the Academy. Here he worked with the Me- 
chanical Engineering Club, and was one of the feature 
editors and make-up men for the TRIDENT during 
Youngster Year. His interest in femmes was reawakened 
Second Class Year, and his conversational abilities and 
tact made him popular with the Navy drags. 



Chester €j. §)tat§\ 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

Chet knows the Navy, for he came to us the hard way, 
by Fleet Appointment. To him, the best branch of the 
Navy is the sub service and that is where he is plan- 
ning to go after his four years at the Trade School. 
Whether it be on Long Island Sound or Chesapeake 
Bay, just put C.G. at the wheel of a yawl or yacht, and 
he would be as happy as if he were on leave. Perhaps 
this interest accounted for his being on the sailing team, 
an active member of the Boat Club, and the skipper 
of many week-end sailing trips. Chet spoke about him- 
self in round numbers; "How long were you in the 
Navy? "About twenty-eight months." "What is the 
population of your home town?" "About three million. 
"How long do you plan to stay in the Navy?" "About 
twenty years."

LAWRENCE, MASSACHUSETTS 

Harry has been a seadog ever since boot camp at New- 
port, Rhode Island. Rising to the level of Storekeeper 
2/c, he served on the U.S.S. TAURUS, a noteworthy AF 
(according to him) which operated from New Zealand. 
The lure of more important things in the Navy induced 
him to try for a fleet appointment to the Academy. 
Recreation hours never seem to drag for him since he 
found that music, reading, walks in the country, and 
letters filled those hours pleasantly. He is known as the 
"Hot Mot" because he gets 99% of the word, and has 
quick access to information. The Navy together with his 
fiance, to whom he is devoted, should supply Harry with 
all the happiness and contentment which we wish him in 
the future.

Colonel's days at high school must have been well spent, 
for, with no other preparation, he managed to keep 
many numbers between himself and the anchor. Aca- 
demics never monopolized his time, though, for he was 
a member of the intramural teams in swimming, water 
polo, soccer, and cross country, as well as an All- 
American mail receiver. Youngster Cruise found the 
Colonel dividing his time between sack drill and extra- 
helping the notorious section 1 of the 6M Division clean 
bunker oil out of the voids of the North Carolina. His 
ability, his quiet, unassuming personality, and his ever 
present smile have made him a fine classmate, and will 
make him a fine shipmate and officer in years to come.

thusiasts, Whit is headed for a career in the Sub service. 
Drawing down Navy N's since Plebe Year for tending 
sheets and becoming waterlogged in the dinghies, he 
also added a yawl command for those periodic drag- 
ging sprees. He divides his home town allegiance be- 
tween Laguna Beach, California, and Madison, Wiscon- 
sin, and spent two years in V-12 at Northwestern before 
entering the Academy. That one stripe opened up op- 
portunities for the fair sex and operations ranged from 
Crabtown and Baltimore to the West Coast via Chicago. 
Reveille inspections, musters, liberties, and the hops all 
went too fast to get a good look, but the next twenty 
years will give plenty of time for reflections and mem- 
ories.

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA 

From out of the swamp, deep in the bayou country of 
Louisiana, Denny found his way to Crabtown, stopping 
only to become President of the Sigma Chi Chapter dur- 
ing his two years at Louisiana State University. This fact 
undoubtedly explains his ease with the fair sex and 
superior collection of drags. Six months of his year as a 
bluejacket were spent at radio school. This experience, 
coupled with his keen mind and previous college, has 
easily overcome all academic hurdles. As an athlete 
he is adept at bridge, golf and ping pong. Denny's 
hobby has always been model airplanes, which accounts 
for his desire to win the golden wings. His affable 
spirit and industrious nature will carry him to great 
heights. 



WARREN, ASKANSAS 

Coming to us from the fish laden streams of Arkansas 
via more than a year in the Navy, Larry has divided 
his interests among a girl, football, and food. Almost 
any weekend one could find him rushing out to one of 
his haunts to devour a steak. As for the girl and foot- 
ball, Larry excels at both, being engaged and heading 
up the JV team. Always in a rush, he was often re- 
ferred to as "Hurry-up" Derby. It was a boon when 
Second Class Year rolled around, as he was an ardent 
music lover, and owned stacks of records of all kinds. 
Larry's love of fun often pulled him into trouble— and 
even extra duty. On the serious side, investigation 
showed him to be a steady, dependable worker who 
was everybody's friend and who kept his nose in the 
boat. 






OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA 

Nurtured by the California sunshine and conditioned 
by an Irish temperament augmented by thirty months in 
the Marine Corps, Lew has pretty well taken life here 
in his stride. If it weren't for Lew's height, he would 
probably have been unknown to those who weren't in 
immediate contact with him, for he was very self-con- 
tained and quiet. Academics never gave Lew much 
trouble— his main worry was his receding hairline. His 
extra-curricular activities consisted mainly of making the 
acquaintance of all beautiful women he saw. Lew has 
the respect and admiration of all, and, at this, the start- 
ing point of his career as an officer in the Marine 
Corps, he takes with him our best wishes for success 
and happiness.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

Big John came from the heart of Dixie. Inspired by his 
Uncle Robert of "Scratch-one-flattop" fame, he intended 
to come to Navy and laid his plans while still in gram- 
mar school. He attended Mercer University, after which 
he spent a year in Uncle Sam's infantry. On the eve of 
his departure for Europe, his appointment to Navy came 
through. Big John was a definite athlete, and played 
both basketball and football while at the Academy, but 
his knack for breaking an arm or leg in the middle of 
each season hampered his chances for N's on his B-robe. 
He believed that the year passed faster if you lived from 
week to week, and there seldom passed a week-end 
when Big John was not dragging; many and lovely were 
the lucky drags he introduced to Navy. 






John <T. Dvtan 

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA 

Some say that John fell asleep going to Washington 
one summer day of '45, and awoke to find himself within 
the walls. Nevertheless, not one to let an unexpected 
opportunity slip through his grasp, "Sleepy" entered into 
the matter with a will, and set an enviable mark in 
academics. While equally proficient in athletic and 
social fields, John, early in his career found himself 
decidedly in favor of the latter, and seldom a week- 
end passed that this son of Erin via Oklahoma wasn't 
seen with the lady of the hour. Ever with an eye for 
fun, John could often be found participating in the 
antics that made the life of the execs one of constant 
duress. Now that Sleepy has terminated his Academy 
days, he has his sights set on Naval Aviation, where he 
will continue with the gentlemanly good will that has 
so marked his days here. 



JiBMn&t £. £>dmundson 

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

Jim was a natural for the Academy, entering on Presi- 
dential appointment with a fine Cadet Corps record 
from Central High of Washington, plus a year in the 
Navy. Eddie was known for his capacity to turn in a 
good job and to finish whatever he started, in which 
respect he finished high on the list in just about every 
sailing race during his career at the Academy. Besides 
making the plebe and varsity starboat sailing teams, 
Jim was a deadeye from way back, spending the winter 
months down at the rifle range collecting possibles. A 
confirmed Red Mike, this stocky little guy much pre- 
ferred hearing the hum of a lathe over in the Isherwood 
shops to the sweet nothings of a drag. Still, on proper 
occasions, he managed to produce some mighty good 
looking femmes.

DANBURY, CONNECTICUT 

Johnny or "I", whatever you called him rated you his 
genial Colgate— U, that is— smile. Four years at Navy 
Tech made him a standard fixture on the batt boxing 
team, the OAO list, and as a shutterbug of some re- 
known. His dislike of Maryland weather never pho- 
hibited his spending part of his leaves in Baltimore with 
its one woman, Kitten. His pet brag was that he was 
related to a Confederate General who was court mar- 
tialed and hung, not even shot. Reared in the crags 
around Danbury, he stoutly asserted that the guy had 
it coming for being in the Army, and the wrong one at 
that. If the Fleet has room for a man who knows his 
job and does it well, there's room for "I."

SUSANViLLE, CALIFORNIA 

As Susanville, California's, gift to the Navy, Scott came 
to us from the Sierra Nevadas via a semester at the 
University of California and a year's hitch in the Navy. 
A staunch advocate of the rugged West, he made his 
name at the Naval Academy by his prowess on the 
football field, where he was co-captain of the team, and 
in boxing, as a string of athletic awards as long as he 
is tall will prove. No mean student, Scotty managed to 
cool the academics with a minimum of effort and have 
plenty of spare time left to spend reading his beloved 
cowboy serials. As far as the fair sex was concerned, 
Scotty remained a true explorer, and happily upheld the 
sailor's maxim of a girl in every port. 



(Howard £1. £>dwardM 9 Jr. 

MILLIKEN, COLORADO 

Though Howie was small in stature, there was an air of 
magnanimity about him. Before entering the Academy, 
Howie spent two years in the fleet, and so was several 
lengths in front of the rest of us. He was a master of 
knots, tricks, and sea stories— the latter being his most 
famous. An understanding of knots was essential to 
Howie, for he held down the 121 pound spot on the 
wrestling team. It was a treat to watch Howie tie up 
some opponent, as he used such poise and finesse. His 
finesse and poise were not confined to the wrestling 
loft alone, though, for he displayed them in every move 
he made. A true connoisseur, a believer in the benefits 
of wine, women, and song, a possessor of a sincere 
desire to make friends with everyone — Howie cannot 
help but go to the top.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

With the advent of "Sticks" career at Severn's shore, 
another page may be written in the proud saga of the 
land of towering timber and snow capped peaks. 
Luckily for us, this enterprising young Thespian did not 
confine his talents to the halls of Bancroft, but soon ad- 
vanced to broader fields, appearing in a number of the 
Masquerader's productions. While cold winter months 
inevitably found Jack industriously pursuing the adven- 
tures of his favorite heroes in the current pulp thrillers, 
the return of balmy spring breezes soon found him on 
the diamond as an able pitcher for Navy's junior var- 
sity baseballers. If the day suddenly seems brighter in 
the old home town during future years, be sure to look 
skyward, for the chances are that a jovial young aviator 
will be winging his way over. 



DILLINGHAM, ALASKA 

"Mush", one of Alaska's favorite sons, is in the Navy 
for one main reason, to fly. Having had experience in 
the northland as a "bush pilot," he looked forward to 
aviation classes with great enthusiasm. Born in the 
state of Washington, he has spent most of his life up 
in Seward's Icebox, and stoutly defends it as the best 
of all places to live. He attended the University of 
Alaska for two years, where he was a star man. Un- 
fortunately, the state of Maryland offered him little op- 
portunity to pursue his favorite sport, skiing. As far as 
other hobbies are concerned, he said that sleeping and 
women were outstanding, but when asked what he 
wanted to see written here, he replied, "Not too much." 



John £. §i\hiti*aat. ### 

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

With pipe in mouth and guitar in hand, John helped 
to shorten many a long evening during the dark ages 
by his tall tales of old Mexico. We had no doubts that 
Juan could have captained the radiator squad had he 
not abandoned it during the winter and spring to com- 
pete in gymnastics and track on the plebe and varsity 
teams, winning numerals in both sports. In occasional 
bursts of energy, he also participated in company soccer 
and football. John maintained that his favorite occupa- 
tions were hunting and fishing, but it is possible that the 
material gathered for future discussions interested him 
more than the activities at hand. Wardroom messes 
throughout the fleet will respond to the ringing laugh 
and well-stocked repetoire of "Peje Quemado."

William 111. Pulton 

MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS 

"Steamboat" arrived here one bright day in '45, and 
neither the system nor academics could induce him to 
leave before his four years were up. After attending 
college in and out of the Navy, at Northwestern, where 
he was a SAE, and Cornell, from which he emerged 
with the rank of Ensign, Bill had little trouble with 
academics, save Dago, and has helped many of us 
over the pitfalls of that phase. He was no slouch at 
dragging, either, but finally settled down to an OAO. 
Music has ever been one of his chief interests, and, next 
to his fondness for telling anecdotes after taps, will 
probably be that for which we will most remember him. 
Now that graduation time is here, the Navy is receiv- 
ing as able an officer as the Academy has produced. 



COLUMBUS, OHIO 

Paul started his career at Navy shortly after finishing 
a year at Ohio State University. Well-liked by all from 
his first day of Plebe Summer, he also commenced to 
climb academically. Stemming from a legal background 
afforded by his father's service as a judge, Paul main- 
tained his interest in politics. We won't say Paul was 
a Red Mike, but he firmly believed that women are a 
snare and a delusion. He hopes, however, to be happily 
married someday. Paul has always participated vigor- 
ously in battalion sports, continually demonstrating how 
lots of fun can mix with a good game of lacrosse or 
football. His winning smile and amiable personality will 
help him greatly throughout his career. 






JDavid £. €j**i€>\ 

FRANKLIN, VERMONT 

Leaving the green mountains of Vermont behind him, 
"Rusty" matriculated at the University of Vermont and 
MIT before Navy. He was a star man, and few were the 
profs who have not been confused by Dave's questions 
and logic. Following the traditions of the Navy, Dave 
has had an angel in every port, especially those be- 
tween Annapolis and his home town. Aside from this, 
his main hobby, he has found time to make several 
sports squads, including plebe soccer and lacrosse, and 
JV soccer. Dave's preference for duty runs along en- 
gineering lines. His dogged determination to excel and 
logical approach to anything he attempts will insure 
him a large measure of success.

FULTON, NEW YORK 

The records show that Steve was launched on his Navy 
career by the V-12 Unit of Cornell University. Our mem- 
ories, however, only go back to that hot July day of 
'45 when he ended his first cruise across the Severn 
with a three foot jump over the six foot span separating 
M.L. 12 from the Santee Dock. Fortunately, no one has 
even attempted to keep pace with Jyles these past 
four years. A man of lesser talents would have flound- 
ered long ago, but Steve has proved that the no-study 
technique provides one with a sure-fire means of par- 
ticipation in the annual June cap-tossing affair. Classes 
with S.A.G. were a pleasure for all hands, for his ex- 
tremely high-class snow jobs invariably produced a free 
ride for his companions.

LONG BRANCH, NEW JERSEY 

While in V-12 training at Dartmouth, Frank packed his 
ditty bag and headed for the Severn's shore. Active in 
athletics and extra-curricular activities in high school 
and college, he continued adding to his laurels here 
in batt football, company football, and plebe tennis, as 
class treasurer, and as a gifted artist. The subtle humor 
of his cartoons in the Trident Calendar and his many 
feature illustrations as Art Editor of the TRIDENT demon- 
strated his fine artistic ability. Despite this overwhelm- 
ing activity, he wrote his OAO every day and starred 
academically. His broad versatility, quiet demeanor, 
and exacting efficiency have made him one of the most 
respected men in the Brigade. Frank intends to earn 
his wings as soon as possible. 



PATERSON, NEW JERSEY 

In his own little way, Grab was easily the most outstand- 
ing man at the Naval Academy, for, although a good 
little boy at heart, he soon became the terror of every 
D.O. His two most frequent hangouts were the extra- 
duty squad and his bunk. A Ravel-Munroe fan, a killer 
at the tiller, and founder of the "terrible trio," Grab, 
with his mild mannered personality in all its explosive 
forms, has dug a niche deep in the stone of Bancroft. 
Academics were no worry; witness his successful efforts 
to turn the juice lab into an amusement park. With his 
physique of gargantuan proportions, he was a terror on 
the football field. His sense of humor and spirit of co- 
operation will take him far in life, and insure his success 
in any endeavor— Marine Corps, stand by!

COLUMBUS, GEORGIA 

From the deep South, Bill came to the Academy via 
the fleet competitives after fifteen months of service. 
With plenty of musical talent, he made our days much 
more pleasant with his piano playing, accompanying 
the midshipman choir in his church, and playing for the 
Musical Club Show Plebe /ear. Once past Plebe Steam, 
academic worries were over for Bill. He won few 
awards in athletics, but did participate in company 
soccer, steeplechase, and cross country, and occasionally 
visited the pool to see what Coach Warner had for the 
sub squad. Willie was one of those wardroom pests 
who drank three cups of joe a meal and was always 
ready for a refill when the pot was gone. Never 
fazed by hard work, and always giving his best, Bill 
will surely finish on top.

NEWARK, NEW JERSEY 

Mick had already served one year in the Navy as an 
Ensign when he began again at the bottom of the ladder 
on the Severn. All hands soon found that his room was 
an auxiliary library, and was good for an interesting 
novel. He made a reputation for himself in the Quarter- 
deck Society as early as Plebe Year. He was, moreover, 
a firm believer in physical as well as mental develop- 
ment, and his long sessions of weight lifting have given 
him a sturdy physique. At all of the hops, he could be 
found upholding his reputation as one of the better 
rhumba and samba men in the brigade. Milt plans to 
draw on his pre-Academy experience in Naval liaison 
with the State Department to obtain an assignment in 
foreign service.

PAYNE, OHIO 

Bill Graham— the fellow who was always ready to lend 
a hand, whether it be in having a good time, or getting 
a job done. This well described one of '49's former dog- 
faced boys. Bill came to the Academy after seeing 
service with the Infantry and then the Navy, as well as 
some time at Ohio State, so he can be classed in the 
category of the more experienced. His major interest 
was the Navy, though, due in no small respect to the 
Navy Air Corps. Here, Bill was always on the go, 
either with waterpolo, basketball, or the M.E. Club— 
and somethimes even Academics, although they didn't 
hold much terror for him, and he usually spent his time 
planning the next weekend. He claimed to be the ex- 
plorer type, but our bets are down that he'll be trapped 
before many moons after graduation.

WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON 

After deserting the "Apple Capital of the World" long 
enough for a year each at Wenatchee J.C. and Cal 
Tech, Ham gave Greeley a perverse look, and came East 
to Navy. Always a math-and-related-subjects slash, he 
found little to worry him over in Sampson and Maury, 
and passed on his savvy to the rest when we needed it. 
Ham combined his shutter-mania with an interest in 
Russian to become the Will Hays of the Rooskie Cloob, 
and was a faithful member of the Quarterdeck Society 
as well. After a slow start, Ham dragged often and, 
although he had varying success, including near-pos- 
session of the coveted company brick, he never found 
that femme fatal, and never gave up— so he lives to 
explore a larger field. 



William £. Mall 

CLEVELAND, OH'iO 

A little man with a large book was probably Bill, and 
the book was probably Plato or Aristotle. He was one 
of our intellectuals, and was more often reading the 
classics than studying a text, but since before Navy, he 
had spent two years at Ohio State studying Juice, it 
is little wonder that he slept during exam weeks. His 
love for sleeping was surpassed only by the pleasure he 
got from Maryland's climate, and on the warmest day 
he could be seen "collar up and buttoned," and still 
shivering. Plebe Year, Bill was active in sports, being 
on the plebe crew, and rifle team, but Youngster Year 
he joined the squad that ran the obstacle course every 
afternoon. After that, he joined the radiator squad, 
and was a member ever after. 



Wayne £. Mali 

MILLER, SOUTH DAKOTA 

From the badlands came "Lover" Hall— why Lover? No 
one knew definitely, but it seemed appropriate, as 
everyone readily identified him with that name, despite 
his cries of being a Red Mike. In his first years here, 
Wayne was noted for his athletic prowess, having par- 
ticipated in lacrosse and football, and earning places 
on both the plebe and junior varsity teams in both. 
But the flesh is weak; he finally found his calling in the 
steerage, and was true to the radiator squad from then 
on. When we think of the people we have associated 
with during our four years on the Severn, Wayne will 
certainly stand out as one who could be always counted 
on as a friend. He always had a pleasant word for 
everyone, and regardless of how things were going, he 
could be counted on to find the bright side of life.

William C. Haskell 

NORWICH, NEW YORK 

From Norwich Chazz brought his sparkling smile and 
ever-ready wit to Navy. Although his high school days 
were spent in collecting many and varied athletic 
awards, he was a radiator man through and through 
at Navy. As an explorer, Chazz has kept up with the 
best in pursuing the fairer sex, and his woeful stories 
have seldom failed to raise the listener's deepest sym- 
pathy. Although no bucket, Charlie could be found al- 
most every Sunday night and after evening chow in 
the midst of bull sessions, rather than hitting the books. 
With an eye on the Navy as a career, and a smile in 
his heart for all the world to share, Charles W. will long 
be remembered by his classmates and their best wishes 
will always be with him. 



CLARKSTON, GEORGIA 

The greatest contrast the Academy had seen in years 
was afforded by Tom (the little man) and his wife, Big 
John Dixon. Young Stud Hensler arrived here via a 
fleet appointment, sporting Navy Aircrew-man's wings 
and a record of thirty months of service behind him. 
His ever present smile, sense of humor, and fine per- 
sonality tagged him as a character from the world "go". 
When not causing half the company to roll with 
laughter, Kayo enjoyed himself by being a solid mem- 
ber of the radiator squad, even wearing a gold radiator 
on his B-robe. His passion for wine and song was un- 
bounded. The woman angle was noticeably absent, 
except for the OAO back home. 






MALIBU, CALIFORNIA 

Before coming to Naval, Fred had spent two years at the 
University of Texas which he left to join the Navy, and 
was then given a Fleet appointment to the Academy 
after a two year hitch. His personality developed during 
his tour of duty here, and he improved his taste for 
good music, good literature, and good looking women. 
He didn't drag often, but when he did, she was sure 
to be something special. His athletic tendencies made 
him a natural for the radiator squad, on which he was 
a four-year varsity man. He spent his spare time in 
photography, and his colored pictures of Bancroft beer 
parties rank with the best. Fred hopes to enter Engi- 
neering during his naval career to prove to the Steam 
Department that their grades didn't mean everything.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Chuck was one of the older men in the class, having had 
a year of college and two years in the Navy before 
coming to the Academy via a Fleet Appointment when 
his original dentistry plans lost out to a career with the 
Fleet. Leave, liberty, and recreation were his forte, and 
he could usually be found working at one of the three. 
His ideas of recreation ranged from bull-sessions to 
dragging, and he held his own at both. Chuck's con- 
sistency and reliability are his strong points and will 
stand him in good stead when he joins the Fleet. If 
the luck of the Irish stays with him, he will go far. 









Joseph £. Hodd&r. Jr. 

AUBURN, NEW YORK 

Most of the time Joe was quite happy here at Navy, 
but, although definitely a twenty-year man, he con- 
tinually longed for Auburn, there to putter around and 
relax. Despite a stint in bell-bottomed trousers, under 
which circumstances most developed a "cherchez la 
femme" complex, Joe was a confirmed Red Mike. He 
still kept fairly busy, though, thanks to the Academics 
and the local movie palaces, in which he was almost a 
stockholder. As well, he had a lively interest in sports, 
particularly baseball and golf. His ever-present sense 
of humor and his cooperative spirit were responsible for 
his host of friends. We all wish him well as he heads 
for the Fleet and those wings.

CARBONDALE, PENNSYLVANIA 

"I'm in love," proclaimed Bernie after every blind date, 
but no one took him seriously, for we all knew he was 
true to the one back home. Not only a great lover, 
he was also an athlete, having captained his high school 
football and basketball teams and, winning letters in 
both at Colgate, where he had a year of engineering. 
Here he went out for football and baseball, earning a 
first string spot on the plebe team, and later playing 
two years of JV football. But his greatest claim to fame 
was that he was from Carbondale. To describe his love 
for his home town would be impossible, so, in his own 
words, "I'm from the hard coal region of Pennsylvania, 
and proud of it!" His time in the Army Air Forces must 
have convinced him that he wanted to fly, for he now 
has his sights set on a career in the Navy Air Corps.

SANDS POINT, NEW YORK 

Life for those of us who knew the Corsario was never 
dull, for his frequent engagements with the academics 
were flavored with sea stories from the tomb of J.PJ. 
Quite naturally, Salty found a love for sailing races, 
but his greatest achievement here was a well-earned 
berth on the varsity fencing team. Perhaps the most 
amazing examples of his dexterity were the realistic 
and natural sketches which he turned out endlessly. 
Thriving only on salt water, Salty returned on cruises 
to the foc'sle, where he gave extra instruction in Seamo 
to one and all. His love of martial music inspired him 
to form "Ingall's Dragoons," made up of talented plebes 
in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Salty having success- 
fully completed his campaign, we are proud to pipe 
him into officer's country. 



CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

Prior to his entrance to the Naval Academy, Jim spent 
a year and a half in the V-12 program where he picked 
up the odd habit of falling asleep whenever anyone lec- 
tured. Despite this seeming handicap, he still managed 
to come through with a surprisingly keen understanding 
of what was going on. Jim spent a great part of his free 
time in church activities, not only proving to be a very 
capable Sunday School teacher, but also proving himself 
a real leader among the older folks of his church. He 
did more than just read his Bible daily, he made a real 
study of it, and this proved to be a definite influence 
not only on his own life, but also on those of us who 
have had the privilege of knowing him.

PLAINVIEW, TEXAS 

Though Bob didn't always rave about the Lone Star 
State, there was little doubt that he considered it the 
garden spot of the earth. After high school, where he 
won three football letters, he joined the Navy for six 
months. His first year here he sparked the plebe foot- 
ball team, then moved up to the varsity, where he 
piloted the team from the quarterback position and 
earned the nickname of "Crusher" from the way he 
pushed opponents aside to get off his famous passes. 
We marveled how he could hit his receivers so accur- 
ately, when in Bancroft he could hardly recognize any- 
one more than five yards away. Always ready to help, 
Bob got along well with everyone and will always do 
his best in any job.

BROKEN BOW, NEBRASKA 

"Skeets" is one of those among us who approached the 
Academy step by step in the Navy, starting in the 
Navy training program at Iowa State, then going to 
Bainbridge, and finally reaching Severn's shore with the 
early arrivals. Since then he has firmly established him- 
self as one of the progressives, not to be held back. 
When the class visited England, he was not satisfied 
with just stopping there— he went out and proved to us 
that he really had castle-dwelling relatives in Eire. At 
present, he hasn't decided to what branch of the ser- 
vice he hopes to devote his efforts, but it seems that 
Steam and all it's pitfalls held no terror for him, and 
it's our guess that the watertenders and firemen will soon 
acquire a new boss on watches. 



(Robert C. James 

MENDOTA, ILLINOIS 

Born in San Diego, Jim had no sooner become accus- 
tomed to life than he was whisked away to a distant 
town in Illinois— which he now calls home. It was there 
he first became acquainted with school, and, as the case 
with most of us, it definitely affected him. He was on 
the road to education. After high school, he entered 
Georgia Tech, where he majored in Mechanical Engi- 
neering, but, being of an old Navy family, he was not 
destined for that sort of life. Jim's athletic prowess was 
well above average, but his lack of size limited him to 
intramural sports. This brings to mind two of his am- 
bitions: the invention of a better built-up shoe, and the 
elimination of tall women. After graduation, Jim plans 
to continue his career in the capacity of a Naval 
Aviator. 



Charles ISM. C. Jones, Jr. 

HOUSTON, TEXAS 

Jonesy is a product of J. H. Reagen High School, Hous- 
ton, where he starred on the rifle team. Five semesters 
of Navy V-12 college training at Texas A & M and 
Millsaps College, Jackson, Mississippi, qualified Jonesy 
in an academic way. His one year of football at Mill- 
saps presaged his activity in that sport here. He won 
numerals in plebe football, an NA on the JV squad 
Youngster Year, and played varsity ball his last two 
years. As if this was not enough, he was irreplaceable 
in winning a Brigade Championship in unlimited touch 
football and found time to show promise on the batt 
lacrosse squad. His close friends affectionately call him 
Bolivar, for the Walt Disney character of the same name.

HACKENSACK, NEW JERSEY 

Jim was an Air Cadet for a year during the war before 
attending the Academy. Here was an all around good 
fellow who was always in there plugging. He partici- 
pated in all types of popular sports and even spent 
Christmas leave skiing and ice skating in the daytime. 
At the Academy, Jim was best known for his fleetness 
afoot and his ability to scamper with the pigskin in batt 
football. Academics have had their rough spots for him, 
but in general, J.K. has consistently stood in the upper 
quarter of his class. Most Navy men have a girl in every 
port but Jim had one in every college east of the 
Ozarks. After graduation, Jim hopes to become a Naval 
pilot, continuing a full and successful life. 



matH&am Ridley 

ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS 

When MacLean decided to trade Naval Aviation for the 
Naval Academy, he was off on what proved to be virtu- 
ally a four year vacation, for Mac prided himself on his 
easy-going attitude toward both the executive and 
academic departments. His disinclination to take a 
strain academically left him much time for athletics. 
First he won his numerals in plebe soccer. Then the ex- 
perience gained captaining his high school rifle team 
back home at East High in Rockford did a great deal 
to keep Navy consistently in the win column after Mac 
became a valuable member of first the plebe, and later 
the varsity, rifle teams. Now as we separate, we all 
join in wishing for Mac duty that will provide for him 
a soft sack. 






Jewry §i. &ienyon 

ROLLA, NORTH DAKOTA 

Out of the wilds via the University of North Dakota 
came our Jerry, who, when asked where he was from, 
replied, "Close to Canada." His obsession for flying has 
manifested itself in many ways, one being that he has 
his private license, and another his desire to enter the 
Air Corps subsequent to graduation. If a love for flying 
is a major factor towards becoming a successful pilot, 
Jerry will be one of the best. Basketball had a priority 
on Jerry's free time. He has won numerals and letters 
playing company, plebe, and JV ball. Always ready 
for a party, bull session, or any other diversion, Jerry 
has won a host of friends here at the Academy who 
wish him the best of everything.

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT 

A resonant tenor voice echoed through Bancroft— it 
could only be that of Herb. Whenever we felt low, we 
would implore him to give us a bit of sunshine, a little 
song. "Come on, Herb sing" was our cry. Usually we 
got more than we bargained for. Before Navy, Herb 
attended Trinity College in Hartford for a year, as well 
as serving a year in the Navy. Although not a varsity 
man, he was recognized by all as the fastest man in 
the company, and was proficient in all sports, including 
ping-pong. To our knowledge, Herb never missed a 
hop his last three years. Hopless weekends? That was 
when "Kindl's Guide Service" flourished. His amiable 
qualities have made Herb popular among his class- 
mates, and we know that his friendly disposition will 
always be with him, and that he will make more friends 
wherever he goes.

William C. Minq 

YONKERS, NEW YORK 

After Birch Wathen School, Bill started at Yale on a 
scholarship, but, after a month gave up the "campus" 
for the "yard." Here he found it easy to keep ahead 
of Academics and still have time for good books and 
good music. On any non-dragging weakend one could 
find him with Aristotle or the Emperor Concerto. "Snow- 
shoes" tried company soccer and steeplechase, but 
settled for water polo, where his slightly large feet were 
an asset for once. This is one member of the flying 
squadron who was not satisfied with just dragging Amer- 
ican women, and had some of his queens all the way 
down from Canada. Just mention the subject— he was 
always ready and willing to take pro or con, and his 
opinion was sure to be "180°" out of phase with yours. 



WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA 

Since the life of a Naval officer appealed to Lago dur- 
ing his two years at the University of Washington's 
NROTC, he came to Navy despite its distance from his 
beloved California homeland. Many of the early courses 
were review work for Lago, but he tied the loose ends 
together until he had them cold, and went on to excel 
in the unfamiliar courses also. He was also known as 
Red Mike Lake, not because of his red hair and first 
name, but because he found dragging here too much 
bother, especially with his California queens out of 
reach. While others dragged, Lego relaxed on his sack, 
read novels, listened to Bach and Beethoven, and in- 
dulged in his favorite sport, swimming. Without his big 
grin and unparalleled wit, our days at the Academy 
would have been incomplete.

RUSSEL, KENTUCKY 

Lem came to Navy from the Kentucky hills via Berea 
College in the heart of the blue grass region, where 
they specialize in blue blood horses, moonshine, and 
Kentucky colonels, suh! Although a three year letter- 
man in high school football, "De" decided that the 
best exercise here was a few winks every afternoon. 
When routed from his sack, however, he would always 
turn in a good exhibition in a soccer game. His constant 
companion was one of his pipes, and his biggest hobby 
was carving them. While the rest of us saw the world, 
and got pictures in our minds, Lem got them on film. 
He made pictures of everything, and we could thank 
him for many of our scrapbook views. Regardless of 
what he chooses, Lem will always be popular with his 
generous personality and good humor. 



MANHATTAN, NEW YORK 

A former pre-med student at Fordham University, "Pavel" 
is still trying to forget the time he spent in the army. 
Always a mainstay of the company teams, he spent most 
of his free time trying to keep in contact with a seem- 
ingly endless number of girls throughout the world. 
Having spent a good many of his younger years in 
Europe, Paul's trans-Atlantic cruises gave him a chance 
to look up old haunts and old friends— to him, every- 
one was an old friend, and every place was home. 
His room was an all hands' rate, and his mind open 
to all interesting thoughts and suggestions. Many mem- 
bers of the other sex have found his heart as open as 
his mind. Although the past held fond memories for 
him, Paul expected future travels and adventures to 
keep away the boredom he found in routine. 



U)Utiam €}. XWor, Jr. 

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA 

A Navy Junior, Bill is well traveled, having visited forty- 
five of the states, besides living in China, Japan, and 
the Philippines. He was president of his class in high 
school, and there weren't many places at Navy where 
Bill didn't stand high. Academics?— whenever the grades 
were posted, his name was starred. Athletics?— an ex- 
cellent swimmer, he won numerals and letters in plebe 
and varsity swimming, as well as battalion swimming 
and water polo. Seniority?— No. He was the baby of 
our company. He was a member of the Boat Club, 
having earned his yawl command Youngster Year. With 
his OAO living in Arlington, he dragged at every op- 
portunity. Bill looks forward to entering Naval aviation 
after graduation.

William g. £,awlew 9 Jr. 

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA 

Bill, who hails from just about every part of the U. S., 
came to Navy with two loves— the state of Michigan 
and a girl from Ohio. Having worked his way from the 
bottom as an apprentice seaman, he spent a year as an 
enlisted man at Bainbridge before arriving here on the 
shores of the Severn. Bill was one of the few who could 
say he came here without graduating from high school. 
This curious circumstance proved to be no impediment 
to his academic success. Although a snappy dresser and 
a good dancer, he did remain steadfastly loyal to his 
OAO. If he could be torn away from his letter writing, 
he was always ready for a round of bridge or a bull 
session. His good sense of humor and his friendly spirit 
should carry him far in any field he enters. 



n&wman O. X«rse#* 

ST. JOSEPH, MISSOURI 

Norm came to the Naval Academy after serving two 
years in the Army. He was in Europe during the battle 
of the Rhine and returned to the United States with the 
Purple Heart, two stars on the European theater ribbon, 
and a sergeant's chevrons. Six months at the University 
of Kansas helped sharpen the razor that Norm has been 
wielding mercilessly since academics first began. During 
Plebe Year he proved that his Combat Infantryman's 
Badge was no mistake by holding down a spot on the 
plebe rifle team. Though studious, he could usually be 
seen dragging every week-end. His extreme conscien- 
tiousness and acute mind will assure Norm definite suc- 
cess in any endeavor the Navy may call upon him to per- 
form. 



BEAUMONT, TEXAS 

Lloyd, eighth cousin of the Earl and heir apparent to 
the Scottish clan of Lauderdale, is one of our vociferous 
representatives of Texas. When it came to academics, 
he did right well, and any one of the many who came 
to him for help will attest to his knowledge of this 
"Navy gear." "Laugre" was a three sport man before, 
and here at Navy was a moundsman for the baseball 
team, as well as playing on the company basketball 
and battalion golf teams. His extra-curricular activities 
ran toward women, if the big boy ever ran toward any- 
thing. Tex said he was looking forward to LST duty off 
Galveston Bay, and later, perhaps, to entering aviation, 
in which he served a year before coming to Navy.

MONTHALIA, TEXAS 

This fighting ex-marine really put the metropolis of 
Monthalia (pop. 30 souls) on the map. To hear his 
drawl, one would believe he was a sure bet for the 
radiator squad; but Tex's bathrobe was practically a 
solid display of gold awards. Not only did he play 
varsity football as a plebe, but big Randy also threw 
the javelin on the track team and won the heavy- 
weight boxing championship of the Academy. Big num- 
ber 56 brought joy to our hearts with his bruising 
tackles and crushing blocks on the gridiron, but he was 
one of the most easy-going men in the class. Tex was 
just about as far from a slash as one could be, but his 
name was always conspicuously absent from the trees. 
His driving spirit will carry him far. 



GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA 

Another born and bred Southerner, Ted was always 
available to uphold the excellence of that worthy region 
against all comers, especially in regards to its women 
and fine foods. Tackling every task with a ready smile 
and boundless energy, he made everything at the 
Academy seem amazingly simple. Never worried to any 
extent by academics, he could always be found on week- 
ends with one or both of his favorite diversions— sailing 
and dragging. He regards his summer cruises as the 
highlights of his sojourn at Navy Tech. He never seemed 
to tire of watching bos'ns splice lines and liberty boats 
making a gangway landing. It isn't hard to visualize 
Ted as an old salt twenty years from now, and still 
pleasing to the ladies. 






(James ( Ti. Hinder 

MOUNT PLEASANT, IOWA 

"J.B." must have liked naval schooling, for he was in 
V-12 at Kansas and a two year man at NAPS before 
Navy. Here he had two missions: one to improve his 
sack drill, and the other to discover a way to get more 
chow between "Carry On" and "March Out." On both 
counts he rates a "Well Done." During the week, Jim 
spent his afternoons in the gym playing handball or 
breaking punching bags, and on weekends he headed 
across the Severn to the links. His Saturdays were filled 
by Photo Club darkroom work, or by Mechanical Engi- 
neering Club field trips, for Jim was one of the lucky 
few who entered and left with the same home town 
OAO. Perhaps that was why his eyes twinkled even 
more whenever the cry "Yea Furlough" rang through 
the Mess Hall.

CEDARHURST, NEW YORK 

From the teeming millions of New York, the outstanding 
are chosen for duty at the Academy. Such a one was 
Don Lister. His appointment came while he was holding 
down the waist gunner's position on a Navy PBY. A 
quick transfer to the States, a little boning at NAPS, 
and Don was a Midshipman. He became interested in 
sailing, but his duties with the Stage Gang kept him 
from seriously attempting to win a letter. This was just 
right for Don, who didn't like the week-in, week-out 
practice demanded by varsity sports. His easy flow of 
party chatter and his infallible memory for a good joke 
made him a favorite with all. 






BAYSIDE, NEW YORK 

George came to the Academy straight from a year as a 
Navy control tower operator on San Nicolas Island off 
the coast of California, via the Fleet exams. He had 
a fairly easy time academically, having completed two 
years at R.P.I. , and put his spare time to good use in 
soccer, where he not only acted as team clown, but 
succeeded in booting his way to the varsity squad his 
Plebe Year. He also found company and batt sports, 
such as lacrosse, fieldball, and pushball, wonderful op- 
portunities to beat in the heads of his opponents. What 
with his wise cracks, fiery arguments, and completely 
fouled-up love life, George managed to keep us all 
laughing for four years, and will be a welcome addi- 
tion to the Fleet, even with his slightly fiendish sense of 
humor. 



Reginald €ff. machvtl 

PHOENIX, ARIZONA 

For a former landlubber, Reg showed salty interests at 
Navy, for if there was anything he preferred to sleep- 
ing, it was using his yawl command to sail the Spindrift 
loaded with classmates— and, of course, their drags. He 
never had academic trouble— rather, when he stopped 
letter writing and glanced at his books, he excelled. 
In addition to managing and participating in gymnastics, 
Reg belonged to the Spanish Club, the LUCKY BAG cir- 
culation staff, and was our company representative. 
Like most, Reg found Second Class cruise the best, for 
with his blond hair, and despite his limited vocabulary, 
he was a natural good will ambassador to Swedish 
womanhood. Reg is sure to improve diplomatic rela- 
tions on any foreign cruise the Navy plans for him.

FREMONT, NEBRASKA 

From the plains of Nebraska came Chuck Martin, bring- 
ing all the assurances and mannerisms of the Mid-West 
with him. Serious and sincere from the start, Chuck had 
no trouble with the academics and as a result had much 
free time for his hobby— women. Dragging occupied 
the major part of his week-end time. He had the typical 
mid-westerner's tall spare build, and this he adapted 
to the cross-country and track squads. In addition to 
his love of the various sciences, he enjoyed music and 
developed a taste for the classics — and this even though 
he couldn't carry a tune himself. He faced every situa- 
tion with a cool logic— a trait which served him well 
while he was here and which will serve him well after 
graduation.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

Like all good Californians, Bob said that Maryland's 
rain was the worst he had ever seen. By heritage, he 
should have excelled in the engineering spaces of the 
North Carolina, but drills found him dozing on powder 
bags in the handling room. Perhaps the weight of the 
extra sea bag loaded down with hair restorers was re- 
sponsible for his lethargy. Having attended Urban Mili- 
tary Academy, Maxie did not find the discipline severe. 
He always raved about his OAO, but we couldn't un- 
derstand how one girl could change so between week- 
ends. Slapsie always sought a letter from that girl- 
any girl. Seriously, a more sincere and loyal friend 
doesn't exist, and we are looking forward to serving 
with Bob again.

PITTSBURG, KANSAS 

Born and bred on a Kansas farm, Hal was the picture 
of health and happiness the year around. Admired and 
liked for his almost (we all have our days) perpetual 
good humor, he was the subject of quite a bit of running, 
especially for his unyielding devotion to agrarianism. 
A term at Kansas State Teacher's College and two 
years at Notre Dame in V-12, coupled with his industry, 
have made him a very successful scholar. His extra- 
curricular activities consisted primarily of "cherchez la 
femmeing," and thus far he has managed to avoid any 
entangling alliances. Hal plans to go into Naval Avia- 
tion as soon as possible, and that day will be a good 
one for the Air Corps.

£wing §i. tll4 DitttuhL Jr. 

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA 

Although he started out in this world to be a doctor, 
Mac became sidetracked into the fighting annals and 
has been fighting ever since. First he fought his way 
through military school, then the Army and Navy en- 
listed ranks, and finally wound up at Navy Tech. His 
one aim in life is to have one of those eight columned 
southern mansions with plenty of juleps growing close 
at hand. Although always complaining about the diffi- 
culty of keeping his head above academic water, he 
generally managed to keep his ankles above the sur- 
face, too. Being a believer in the old adage of safety 
in numbers, kept himself surrounded by a bevy of 
females and frequently had to be rescued from this 
danger. 



Chartes J/. lUitifx 

ESMONT, VIRGINIA 

It was a constant source of amazement to all how the 
Colonel, Honolulu born, could have developed such an 
air of Southern aristocracy, for he is a firm believer in 
the mint julep as a national institution. His coming from 
the center of Southern culture, Esmont— population 75— 
possibly accounted for this attitude. Ten minutes after 
an unexpected formation, Charlie would happen on the 
scene, and even during expected formations, he main- 
tained his reputation by ambling in long after the late 
bell had died. A Navy junior, Chuck entered the 
Academy after service as a quartermaster on an oiler 
in the Mediterranean. Admiral Mays' fleet will be fully 
equipped with garden instruments so Charlie can con- 
tinue to be a gentleman farmer even at sea. 



Pienneth V. fiti/hlht,, 

TACOMA, WASHINGTON 

Besides fishing, the sport of his Northwest, of which he 
is so proud, Mac is interested in music and women. 
After organizing and playing in his high school dance 
band, he played a mean tenor sax in the NA-10, and 
managed the same outfit Second Class Year. As for the 
fairer sex, Mac's locker has never failed to occupy the 
mate for at least ten minutes, and his mail outnumbered 
that of his wives three to one. Mac played plebe base- 
ball and patrolled the keystone sack for Coach Bishop's 
team. Besides baseball numerals, and an NA, he col- 
lected several numerals for company cross country and 
steeplechase. Having had two years in the fleet, Mac 
took all this Navy stuff with plenty of laughs and little 
strain.

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA 

Mac made the rounds of all the prep schools before 
he finally decided that Annapolis was just as good as a 
place to relax as the pool hall back in Erie. This ex- 
blast furnace man believed that it was absolutely neces- 
sary to take the minimum amount of strain in academic 
fields— but not in the sporting world. Elroy did a 4.0 
job as a varsity end and was a pistol mainstay until an 
acute case of sack nostalgia forced him to spend quiet 
afternoons with another spicy novel. This character's 
fantastic ability in avoiding feminine entanglements 
made him the envy of his oft-cissed companions. The 
gal who finally runs him aground will definitely be dif- 
ferent from the rest of flock. He hopes to take a crack 
at aviation before he is through. 



John <T. nttJ&Mi&MM, Jr. 

McKEESPORT, PENNSYLVANIA 

Mac came from a city close enough to Pittsburgh so 
that he never saw the light until he came to the Acade- 
my. His pet hate through his four years here has been 
the beds— none yet to accommodate his six foot three 
inches. By looking at Mac's bathrobe one could tell 
that he belonged to the biggest athletic squad at the 
Academy. Where most fellows had N's or numerals 
sewn, he had a cloth radiator. He never let the aca- 
demics get the best of him, and spent most of his free 
time in the Photo Club darkroom. His three loves were 
dragging a different woman every time, the air corps, 
and noise. This last love got him a position as cymbal 
player in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Mac's helpful and 
understanding nature made him an excellent roommate 
and a friend to all. 






BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON 

Frank "Moose" Messenger came to the Academy after 
a stiff academic siege in three Washington state high 
schools, Farragut boot camp, and the V-12 unit at 
Gonzaga University of Spokane. An ardent lover of his 
native West Coast, he still prefers the atmosphere at 
the Messenger domicile at Hunt's Point on Lake Wash- 
ington. His most notable achievement at this institution, 
other than barely squeezing past exams with no study, 
was playing halfback on a championship company 
touch-football team and still being the slowest man 
on the field. He preferred his own circle of friends to 
a general mingling in the Academy's extra-curricular 
activities, as he preferred cramming all his social pleas- 
ures in leaves, week-ends, or football trips, disdaining 
to drag in Annapolis very often.

murtvn J. miller 

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

"Uncle B" had ten months as an aircrewman, during 
which the closest he ever got to a plane was to guard 
one. After Todd School, where he captained the foot- 
ball team, he spent two years at Northwestern, where 
he took a pre-architecture course and won his letters 
in freshman football and basketball. Always a slash, 
he belonged to Pi Mu Epsilon, an honorary math fra- 
ternity. As well as company football and basketball, 
Burt played plebe and varsity baseball, winning several 
numerals and letters. Burt's specialty at Todd was act- 
ing in Shakespearian plays, and he retained his Vitamin 
Flintheart characteristics, elaborating on any story with 
indescribable gestures. His ambitions will be fulfilled 
when he gets recruiting duty on Lake Michigan.

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO 

On the way to Navy, Lou attended Bowling Green High 
School, where he was president of the Science Club, 
and Bowling Green State University. Here at Navy, he 
preferred to get his exercise by stretching himself in 
a horizontal position and catching a few winks of sleep 
when the chance offered itself. When the P. T. De- 
partment did catch up with him, however, he engaged 
in volleyball, cross country, and football of the 150- 
pound variety. Although he managed to be quiet about 
it, Lou gave a good account of himself with the women, 
and dragged quite a lot. With his ability to get along 
with others added to his academic ability, Lou will 
manage to get ahead in whatever he may try.

ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO 

From New Mexico Reed came to erase any ideas we 
might have had about the West's being wild and wooly. 
Interested in aviation and art— his Army poster won a 
prize— he spent a quiet four years here. With New 
Mexico Military Institute and Texas Christian University 
behind— the latter for sixteen months in V-12— , he never 
had much trouble with academics, and went so far as 
to join the Mechanical Engineering Club. Between hours 
of ED Reed found time to engage in company volleyball, 
fieldball, pushball, track, and boxing. We hope Reed 
will have better luck with his wives later, for here three 
resigned and one bilged. We will remember the un- 
limited store of wisecracks he always could loose on 
some hapless victim with perfect timing.

Quy m. n<B€Bley 9 Jr. 

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA 

Mort took quite a ribbing as a Navy junior, but got his 
revenge on week-ends and football trips, living in 
Washington. After playing on the Interhigh Champion- 
ship golf steam at Roosevelt High, he swam on the bat- 
talion and plebe teams, and then won a spot on the 
varsity, gaining points in backstroke events, and win- 
ning awards the next three years. Academics gave Mort 
little trouble indeed, he found time to join the Spanish 
Club. Mort found second class carrier cruise the best, 
although he could have done very well without the 
TBM flights, on which he was always well supplied with 
paper bags. From past experience gained on that cruise, 
Mort decided that line duty on anything that stays on 
the surface would be the most attractive. 



ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA 

"Olie" entered the Academy from the fleet, where he 
had spent two years flying as a Radioman 2/c at 
Patauxent. He was never molested after the night early 
in Plebe Year when he spanked a first classman, and 
from that time on, peacefully pursued his interests in 
sailing and crew. After trying varsity football for a few 
weeks, he found rowing more to his liking, and earned 
his numerals on the undefeated plebe crew. Youngster 
Year, Olie was a mainstay of the Poughkeepsie Cham- 
pionship varsity shell. Second Class Year he found time 
to return to his first love, flying, and obtained his private 
license. Never needing to strain with the books, he 
found plenty of time to fly and sail with Janie. In the 
future, we hope Olie will find a plane with enough leg 
room and head room for his long frame.

TUCSON, ARIZONA 

Murph entered USNA with the first group of candidates 
from NAPS at Camp Perry. Claiming Tucson, Arizona, 
for his home, he proudly proclaimed the climate as 
much as he did his Irish blood. Plebe Year it cost him 
dearly to wear a green bow tie to evening meal forma- 
tion on St. Patrick's Day, but since then it has become 
a tradition in the company. Plebe year he won block 
numerals in cross-country and again as number one 
miler on the track squad. Each fall and spring saw his 
activity on these squads. His spare time was divided 
between dragging, the Mechanical Engineering Club, 
and radio. He is undecided about a life-time career 
of Naval life and wants to give it a fair trial, prefer- 
ably in the Air Corps.

BRECKENRIDGE, MINNESOTA 

Willard, affectionately known as Wig, but called just 
Pete by most people, was Breckenridge's pride and 
glory. Starring as a basketball and football player 
there, he carried the sprit of Breck with him to the 
Academy by his frequent renditions of the Cowboy's 
fight song. Pete's red hair and smiling face won for him 
the confidence of his classmates. Pete liked his chow 
and could hold his own with any of the wardroom chow 
hounds. As for girls, he never had an OAO in the 
strictest sense of the word. On the more serious side he 
taught Sunday School class and read his Bible daily. 
He repeatedly gave credit to God for his successes and 
was more than earnest in his regard for the great 
Creator. 



HARRISON, ARKANSAS 

Dick's high school activities included Boy Scout work 
to the rank of Star Scout and he has continued this habit 
of starring right through his Academy career, having 
been qualified by nine months at Arkansas Tech and 
six months at the University of Arkansas as an electrical 
engineering major. Dick tells us with his usual smile 
and a touch of nostalgia, "That was back in my Joe 
College days." Immediately after this, he entered the 
Navy, spending six months divided between Great Lakes 
and Gulfport. Pahay was the standout half-miler on 
our plebe track team and also won numerals in plebe 
cross-country. Since then he has contributed heavily 
to company strength in fieldball and soccer, plus finding 
time to pace the batt track squad.

DALLAS, TEXAS 

Big Tom came to Navy from the V-12 at the University 
of New Mexico, with hopes of eventually entering the 
Marine Corps. Mastering academics with comparative 
ease, he devoted his time either to athletics, directing 
his greatest efforts to football, wrestling, and lacrosse, 
or to eating someone else's chow, or wondering when 
the next piece of mail from Texas was going to arrive. 
Although an ardent athlete, his uppermost thoughts 
were directed along the lines of having a good time, 
and his friendly smile and manner combined with his 
excellent sense of humor to make him the cynosure of 
any gathering. Never a slave to rigid conventions, Tom, 
with his independence of thought, keen judgment, and 
resourcefulness, is assured of success.

CLAIRTON, PENNSYLVANIA 

As a QM 3/c, Tom served aboard an LCV which carried 
him to the European Theatre and finally to England 
where his stay was interrupted by orders to return to 
the United States for V-12 training at Franklin and Mar- 
shall. After a year of sweating it out there, he trans- 
ferred to Navy Tech. Perhaps Tom might be called a 
Red Mike, having dragged for the first time in the middle 
of Second Class Year. Dragging was always just a little 
too much trouble for Tom who loved his Sunday after- 
noon cribbage game and bootleg coffee. His major 
sport was varsity wrestling. Though he hasn't decided 
what he would like to do in the Navy, we know his 
patience and persistence will insure his success.

OAK PARK, ILLINOIS 

Pete is a New Englander who took Greeley's advice and 
went west as far as Chicago. He has been a notorious 
big dealer and on Youngster Cruise he pulled his big- 
gest deal— turning into the Naval Hospital sixty miles 
from Boston and home, where he spent the summer "re- 
covering." Academics have been superfluous matter to 
Pete— gifted as he was with a fine line and quick smile, 
he kept the profs on his side, which gave him plenty 
of time to read "that" letter and a book a day. Ac- 
customed to New England winters, he thawed out only 
in the spring, at which time he ventured into the open 
to engage in lacrosse and sailing. Pete will go far and 
will undoubtedly end up as one of the Navy's finest 
traveling salesmen. 









William £. /%<>/"/ 

BLOOMINGTON, ILLINOIS 

From the beautiful plains of Illinois via a year of V-12 
duty, Willy Gee came to join the ranks of '49. His out- 
standing popularity while at the Academy was not 
something new to Bill, for in 1943 he was named "The 
Outstanding Boy In Illinois" a fact no one learned until 
he graduated. His specialties were football, basketball, 
baseball, and track, but just try to find a sport that he 
didn't follow and you'll find yourself completely be- 
wildered. While a member of the Class Crest and Ring 
Committee, Bill designed practically all of our class 
crest. Bill was a member of the Quarterdeck Society 
and he did such a good job as Company Representa- 
tive Youngster year that he was re-elected to the job 
Second Class Year.

BETSY LAYNE, KENTUCKY 

Coming from the land of fast horses and beautiful 
women (and other interesting things, he says), Gerry has 
been a refreshing personality to lighten the darker as- 
pects of the Academy curriculum. Having an instinctive 
dislike for regimentation, but resolved to try the system, 
Gerry entered the Navy via boot camp and NAPS on 
a congressional appointment. It was only after strug- 
gling successfully through Plebe Steam that the Academy 
meant more than a prolonged grind. Each passing year 
denoted an increasing devotion to extra curricular inter- 
ests such as books, classical music, chess, the Glee Club, 
and tennis. Although not positive about the best type 
of duty, this Kentucky lad will meet the future more 
than half way.

MANAWA, WISCONSIN 

After high school, Paul entered Notre Dame for a year 
in the V-12, and, profiting by this experience, has had 
little trouble with academics here, using his evenings to 
help along classmates who were less adroit in the use 
of the slide rule. Football was his first love. Plebe year 
he played batt football, and, when the "Mighty Mites" 
were organized, he was a charter member, winning an 
NA and two N's. In the winter he played football 
again— this time company football. Paul's engaging 
personality and optimistic outlook towards life will in- 
sure that his career will be a successful one. The Navy 
Air Corps will benefit greatly by his presence. 



FAIRFIELD, IOWA 

Bob began his career in the Navy with aspirations of 
wearing the wings of gold, but, feeling that his educa- 
tion was a more important issue, the powers sent him 
to Maryville State Teacher's College, Missouri, for one 
year. At this point the Naval Academy entered the 
picture and Bob had to put off his flight training for 
another four years. Throughout, Bob has felt that aca- 
demics hampered extra-curricular activities, but believed 
that physical condition was a "must" for success, and 
so has unfailingly worked out an hour a day— once a 
month. Although his size didn't alarm him, his most 
ecstatic moment occurred upon arriving in Scotland, and 
the subsequent revelation that he was a giant to the 
characteristically short Scot native.

NORTH CARROLLTON, MISSISSIPPI 

This ever reliable harbinger of good dope and good 
times succeeded in making life at Navy just a little more 
enjoyable for both himself and his classmates. "Sands" 
spent a great deal of his time here in elucidating the 
intricacies and mysteries of any and every mathematic- 
ally constructed subject encountered during the four 
years to less apt classmates. His pre-Navy education 
included a year and a half of Civil Engineering at Miss. 
State and a year and a half in V-12 at Georgia Tech. 
Not too athletically inclined, Sand often could be found 
in his room engaging in his favorite post-class pastime— 
the study of Freud's theories on the psychological sig- 
nificance of dreams. His great ambition was to retire 
to his beloved Mississippi Eldorado and spend the rest 
of his life recuperating from the strain of education.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

El had attended Townsend Harris High, been awarded a 
fellowship in music at CCNY, and served nineteen 
months in the Navy as a radio technician before coming 
to the Academy. Here he participated in varsity track, 
plebe cross-country, and battalion sports, in addition 
to his principal sport, boxing. After a rough year of 
plebe indoctrination aboard the Spanish table, E.P. was 
elected class policy representative for the company to 
restore the severity of days when the system was "hard 
but fair." Academics were hardly a match for El; among 
other accomplishments, he stood first in the class in 
Spanish. Ellie was a member of the Regimental Library 
Committee and Spanish Club, and served as Chairman 
of the Reception Committee. His excellent attitude should 
result in continued success. 



{Robert J. Salomon 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

Always interested in sports, Bob played baseball and 
wrestled at Penn State for five semesters before coming 
to Navy. Continuing here, he wrestled, swam, and 
played baseball on the plebe teams. The next three 
years he worked with battalion handball and crew, 
company softball and boxing, JV baseball, and varsity 
track winning numerals for baseball, swimming, and 
softball. Not one to let studies lag, he kept even with 
the academic departments by studying incessantly. The 
fresh air fiend of the company, Bob literally froze out 
most of his roomates by keeping the windows wide 
open even on the coldest days. Given a carrier with 
a large deck on which to run, box, and play basketball, 
Bob will be satisfied, for with his friendly nature, he 
will have little trouble wherever he may be.

ST. CLOUD, MINNESOTA 

Ski spent a year in the Navy before coming to the 
Academy, and plans to continue his career with the 
Navy Air Corps. Other than the conventional straight- 
away flying bothered him somewhat, but he hoped 
that was only temporary. Ivan had definite athletic 
tendencies, having been a member of the plebe basket- 
ball and lacrosse teams, and later the varsity lacrosse 
and 150 pound football teams. He came up from the 
JV lacrosse late Youngster season, and made a very 
impressive showing against Army. His awards have 
been numerals in plebe basketball and lacrosse, NA's 
in 150 pound football, and N's in 150 pound football 
and lacrosse. When the days were sad and long, Ski 
managed to brighten them with his good humor and 
ever-present smile. 



BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA 

A man of changing moods, Oscar is one of those persons 
who is never satisfied with the present as witnessed by 
his changing ambitions. In the years that we've known 
him, he has decided in turn to become everything from 
a traveling artist in Europe to a mining engineer in 
South America. Although a psuedo Red Mike, he could 
always be talked into taking care of that extra girl for 
a classmate. Each fall found him the star of his batt 
football team. A victim of the V-12 program and Re- 
serve Midshipman's School, he arrived at the Academy 
full of the old Blue and Gold spirit and, if he can escape 
the clutches of the Supply Corps, hopes to go into sub- 
marines after graduation. 



John #>. I#V<7* 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Hailing from an old Navy town, John quickly showed 
himself proficient in Navy subjects such as Seamo and 
Aviation, even attaining the rank of "goomaker, first 
class." Lacrosse and sailing occupied some of his after- 
noons, but mostly he enjoyed quiet relaxation on the 
sack after the day. The high point of his week was 
Saturday afternoon, and the low Sunday night, when 
he never tired of relating his weekend experiences to 
an ever appreciative audience. He was never above 
the two hundred mark academically, but if perseverance, 
neatness, and a sense of duty are the qualities of a 
good Naval officer, J. P. will certainly achieve his goal. 
He'll always be remembered not only by the girls, but 
also by the friends he leaves behind.

COLUMBUS, OHIO 

JHB, as he will undoubtedly be referred to when his 
executive ability exerts itself, came to the Academy 
from V-5 with the intention of entering Naval Aviation 
the hard way. His sixteen months at John Carroll Uni- 
versity gave him enough background that he could in- 
dulge in bridge, his favorite pastime, or sleep, his 
secondary hobby. AN OAO waiting at home restricted 
his week-end activities to dining and enjoying a movie 
out in Crabtown. Though an advocate of the radiator 
squad as a major sport, Jim was a member of several 
company teams, earning his numerals in steeplechase 
and participating in volleyball and basketball. It always 
amazed us how Happy Jim, after drinking his usual 
quantities of joe, could sleep through so many classes. 
He rarely missed a trick, though.

JAMESON, MISSOURI 

This self-styled wheel roared into Severnside straight 
from NAPS plus an abbreviated tour of duty with a 
M.T.B. squadron. Strangely enough, Hot Leads man- 
aged to absorb a little knowledge in the classroom and 
his high grades permitted him to spend his leisure hours 
in Bancroft's radio shack, where he proved to be one 
of the biggest headaches that the FCC has encountered 
in recent years. Although an athletic gun back in the 
Popcorn Center of the World, he retired from active 
competition here, claiming that he needed a few free 
moments to answer fan mail from his feminine admirers. 
Slim gets a bang out of the Navy and life in general, 
although he claims he only wants to be an attache at 
the Carlsberg Breweries.

PORT WASHINGTON, NEW YORK 

Winning his appointment through fleet competitive ex- 
ams after thirty months in the Navy, Dave had already 
had sea duty on the gunboat "Paducah." After running 
the hundred in high school, he was a natural to excel 
in company steeplechase and soccer, also winning num- 
erals in battalion crew. Having taken in one semester 
at the University of Vermont, he did not let any of the 
academics sink him during his course at Navy, though 
at times he felt partially submerged. A leading pro- 
ponent of co-education at the Academy, Dave's extra- 
curricular activities consisted primarily of dragging. His 
ability to change any crisis into a humorous situation will 
earn him a host of friends, wherever he may be.

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA 

Though born in the very deep South, Bob now hails 
from Pittsburgh, which accounts for his nickname of 
"Smoky." Class president at Peabody High, he excelled 
in track there, earning several letters. Prior to entering 
the Academy, Bob attended Penn State V-12 for a year. 
He soon established himself here as one of the athletes 
of the company, playing good soccer, football, and 
tennis, as well as running cross country. Since he had 
an OAO at home, Bob's diversions did not include drag- 
ging. Naval aviation was the branch of the service 
Stew preferred before coming to Navy, and after com- 
paring life aboard a battleship with the routine of a 
carrier on cruises, Bob is now even more sure of his 
choice. 






Donnvll m. Still 

LEONIA, NEW JERSEY 

A Jerseyite in name only, Don spent his formative years 
in the deep South, and managed to absorb the qualities 
for which that section is famous. The "Forehead" spent 
nine months as a potential flyer but the air corps, with 
a fearful eye in the rising costs of airplanes, decided 
his destiny lay in the floating Navy. From boot camp 
to NAPS to Bancroft were simple steps for our boy. 
When not engaged in the weekly battles of Hospital 
Point, Don could usually be found playing golf, tennis, 
or a cutthroat bridge game. Academics offered little 
resistance; and that deep perception, coupled with his 
friendly disposition and subtle humor, should make his 
twenty years in the fleet successful ones. 



[ficid Strinqfellnw 

OGDEN, UTAH 

Although he is rather modest in most matters, "String" 
holds his home state in high esteem, claiming that it is 
the home of the world's most beautiful women and best 
basketball players. It is a tribute to "Bean's" taste that 
one of his "ex's" was elected "Miss Utah." His main 
interest seems to be sports, in which, in no small way, 
he is an authority. "Peter Rabbit" spent almost two 
years in V-12 before the Academy, studying Aero- 
nautical Engineering at the Universities of Minnesota 
and New Mexico. This training may have won him over 
to the air, because he wants to enter Naval Aviation 
after graduation. Perhaps the thing we will remember 
most about "Big Red," next to his smile and friendly 
disposition, is his willingness to help a classmate.

HONOLULU, HAWAII 

At Navy, George was a long way from his favorite 
haunts— a sandy Hawaiian beach, a surf board, a coco- 
nut tree, and, of course, hula girls. The closest George 
could come to a surf board at the Academy was a 
dinghy— a surf board with sails— so he joined the varsity 
sailing team, where he earned his numerals and letters. 
During non-sailing seasons he played company foot- 
ball and volleyball and ran steeplechase. Though he 
did not neglect academics, George always found time 
to drop in for a visit during study hours and exchange 
tall tales. His letters to the Navy Department (via official 
channels, of course) suggesting cruises to Hawaii ac- 
complished nothing, so George's main ambitions are 
subs in the Pacific and relaxation on the white Hawaiian 
sands. 



Harry ( JL Sts&itar&r 

MADISON, CONNECTICUT 

Skip entered the Academy after thirteen months at Con- 
necticut Wesleyan in the Navy program and the Dekes'. 
The fact that his desk usually collected a heavy share 
of those much-sought blue envelopes led him to acquire 
the distinctive cognomen of "Oomphie." He centered 
his extra-curricular activities between Chesapeake Bay 
in fair weather and the Stage Gang in foul. One of the 
shrewdest skippers in the Academy, he could make 
his starboat sit up and talk, while his constructive talents 
made him a valuable man around the stage. In his 
younger days he excelled on the trombone until one 
day he pawned it for $15 in anticipation of a big 
dragging week-end. Skip found academics no strain, 
and pulled more than one of us through the rougher 
parts of those Dark Ages. 



Howard <HI. Stuart, Jr. 

NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK 

A big man with the women in more ways than with 
just his height, Stu passed most of his week-ends drag- 
ging. Between snapping photographs of pretty girls and 
spending time developing them and showing them off, 
Howie kept pretty well occupied. Fourth class year he 
was on the plebe crew and earned his "49." He also 
participated in company steeplechase, basketball, and 
volleyball, and with Big Stu's 6' 5" frame, how could 
we lose? One of his vows is to return to Denmark and 
retrieve those souvenirs that he left in a taxi after such 
an extensive shopping tour. Because of his height. Big 
Stu cannot fight those overheads in the fleet, and hopes 
to be an aviator someday.

PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY 

Although handicapped by a rapidly receding hairline, 
Al managed to keep the same OAO for his entire 
stretch here at Navy. He came via Passaic from his 
native Edinburgh, Scotland, and brought with him the 
inimitable Scottish wit and even temperament. Although 
not a varsity athlete, Al could be found on the company 
soccer team protecting his right halfback territory. After 
working his way up to Fireman 1/c as an electrician 
striker in the Navy, he earned a fleet appointment and 
came to the Academy. Alec, hasn't had too rough a 
time with academics, even though he was heard to re- 
solve "to get high dailies next term" after each set of 
exams. We expect Al to be a twenty year man and 
have many friends in the Fleet. 



NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT 

Joe came to us from the ranks of the Marine Corps, and 
a tougher gyrene never lived. After a running fight with 
the first class during his Plebe Year, he had obtained 
enough experience to survive a private war with the 
Executive Department during the rest of his tenure. 
Nevertheless, he sowed enough academic seeds to reap 
a bountiful harvest. Although the smallest member of 
the "terrible triumverate," he supplied more than his 
share of the noise and laughter. Joe's spare time was 
usually spent in lifting weights to build up strength and 
sleeping to conserve it. Joe remained true to his OAO 
throughout his vigorous academic career and plans to 
marry after graduation and have six boys— all Marines. 



TOWACO, NEW JERSEY 

It did not take Mai long to find that the "Country Club 
on the Severn" was not the same informal life he had 
left behind at the School of Ten. Nor did it take '47 
long to find out that "Midshipman Thiele, 4/c, Sir" had 
the strongest set of vocal chords in a class of over a 
thousand plebes. As a result, Mai frequently exercised 
those chords with "Hell on the Hudson" and other fa- 
miliar phrases. Plebe Year, Mai started going up to the 
fencing loft, and two seasons and a lot of hard work 
later he won a place on the varsity. In the off seasons 
he helped out the company soccer and gym teams. He 
was seldom alone on weekends, perhaps because Balti- 
more was only thirty miles away. We will remember 
Mai for his even disposition, and his policy of keeping 
his nose in the boat.

John §i. Zwilla 

SMITHVILLE, TENNESSEE 

After spending a year at Marion College in Alabama, 
John decided to give Navy a try. His football ability 
led him to the plebe, J.V., and varsity squads, where 
he was a promising back until a serious knee injury 
ended this career. Unperturbed, he immediately got 
down to work and turned out to be one of the finest 
radiator men in the Brigade. John was never one to 
become unduly concerned over difficulties with the Ex- 
ecutive and Academic Departments, and therefore never 
seemed to have any worries except his wife. After put- 
ting in his time with the Navy, John plans to return to 
Tennessee and tell all the home town boys why they 
should never leave Smithville.

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA 

"Eli" spent three years at the Citadel in Civil Engineer- 
ing, and wore out several pairs of Gl shoes for the 
Army before Navy. He was one of the few persons who 
was alert and cheerful even when standing a midwatch 
on cruise or during the dark ages, and one who never 
had a Navy day. Any afternoon the thermometer regis- 
tered above fifty, he would be out on the Severn bailing 
out his dinghy with the varsity sailors. When it came 
to boxing, this wiry lightweight always made a good 
showing in the Brigade competition. A star man who 
never neglected the books, he always had time to give 
a needy classmate a lift, as well as to keep an active 
interest in the Newman, Portuguese, and Mechanical 
Engineering Clubs. With graduation he hopes to find a 
place in Naval Intelligence.

MUNCIE, INDIANA 

Tom came to us by way of Ball State Teachers College 
and Notre Dame, where he had a taste of Navy life 
as a member of the NROTC. His intelligence and na- 
tural inclination for study placed him at the top of our 
class, and before exams his room often resembled an 
extra instruction classroom. He was interested in every- 
thing from international politics to marine engineering. 
Rather than single out one sport for his attention, 
Waldo applied that old one about "variety being the 
spice of life," and relied on track, soccer or basket- 
ball for his afternoon relaxation. Tom had the distinc- 
tion of being one of the first members of our class to 
make Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.

Qfrank <€. Walking Jr. 

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA 

Whether or not the climate of Tom's home state is re- 
sponsible for his sunny disposition, we'll never know, 
but the "Watt" was popular with all. He found suf- 
ficient time to participate in company and battalion box- 
ing and serve as a lacrosse manager. Tommy never 
dragged any OAO's, for he preferred to collect ad- 
dresses of the pretty girls met after football games and 
at tea fights. When asked whether he intended to marry 
after graduation, his answer was "Give me time." Hav- 
ing had a taste of aviation and line duty on cruises, 
Tom decided that the only thing for him was subma- 
rines, being influenced by the fact that his Dad was a 
sub officer. Judging from his record at the Academy, 
Tom should always give an excellent account of himself.

ALLIANCE, OHIO 

Bob has the distinction of being one of the shortest men 
to ever graduate from the Academy, 5' 5" by stretching. 
Just how much he stretched is our secret, never to be 
shared with the Medical Department. Culver Military 
School is proud to claim him as a graduate. He at- 
tended Mount Union College, Alliance, for one semester 
prior to entering the Army Air Forces. Following the 
sport from high school, he won plebe wrestling numerals 
and could be seen in the loft often in winter months. 
Other athletic achievements included numerals in plebe 
soccer, and company soccer and softball. Second class 
cruise only whetted Bob's appetite for the Naval Air 
Corps and his application for flight training will be 
soon after graduation.

BRISTOL, RHODE ISLAND 

Possessor of a good sense of humor, Willie did much to 
bolster the morale of his less fortunate classmates. Our 
Willie, however, had quite a fight with the "Plumbing 
School"— the Steam Department— for three terms. Eddie 
was quite an old salt when it came to sailing and he 
could usually be found telling the boys how the race 
should be sailed. During the Thursday afternoon pa- 
rades we could see Willie beating out a tricky cadence 
with the Hellcats. But we saw him at his best during 
our cruises to Europe; he was always willing to try his 
skill with any language, and he was quite the gay 
Yankee in the Regent House, London. After graduation 
Ed plans to enter subs for twenty or thirty years.

MOUNT AIRY, MARYLAND 

Buddy has probably spent as much time arguing for 
Maryland weather as the rest have spent arguing 
against it. He is one of those who are definitely thirty 
year men, so we can see that early nearness left its 
mark. Ying has been one of the more conservative 
members of the class, always upholding the ways of 
the system and the Service and when anyone doubted 
just what was correct, it was certain that he could show 
the right way. Buddy started at Bui I is Prep, and since 
then has come through each year in steady style with- 
out undue effort. In fact, he was able to give his fa- 
vorite interests of German music and literature enough 
attention to warrant the title of "Baron." When Ying 
leaves for the fleet, he hopes to devote his energies 
to the Amphibious Forces.

NUTLEY, NEW JERSEY 

Don left Nutley with some misgivings, for to him it was 
and still is paradise on earth. Two years later he took 
the Fleet examination for entrance to the Naval Acade- 
my. He had one year of college at Antioch, so he 
was amply prepared for the bookwork here at Navy. 
The system was something new, but it took Don only a 
few days to find that it was easier to go with it rather 
than against it. As he had no outstanding interest in 
sports, he preferred to devote his afternoons in crib- 
bage, poker, or sack duty. His prowess with the gentler 
sex soon commanded the respect of all hands, even 
though he did little dragging. After graduation, Don 
will pursue his ambition to be a pilot and resume his 
interrupted flight training.

Wilfred a. ffiacehus 

ALEXANDRIA, MINNESOTA 

Probably Bill's steady sense of humor came from the 
fact that, although he dragged constantly, he never 
was a candidate for a bricking party. He came to NA 
from an assortment of Naval training programs, and 
this experience with Navy ways helped him handle the 
Executive and Academic Departments with comparative 
ease. With journalism his first love. Bill worked for 
the LOG, LUCKY BAG, and TRIDENT from Plebe Year 
till graduation. He was Managing Editor of the TRIDENT 
First Class Year, as well as Vice-President of the Trident 
Society. As well as being active in intramural sports, 
he moved up to varsity cross country Youngster Year. 
A potential condidate for Navy wings, Bill had only one 
definite choice after graduation— Atlantic duty. 



David J. mien 

INDIANOLA, MISSISSIPPI 

The familiar "you all" was indicative of Dave's home 
port. After two years at Indianola High School, he 
switched to Swanee Military Academy, where he let- 
tered in tennis, football, baseball, and basketball, using 
his spare time for the honor council. As a civilian, Dave 
entered Georgia Tech, where he majored in mechanical 
engineering for three terms and joined the SAE fratern- 
ity. He also spent a short time in the Merchant Marine 
Cadet Corps before hitting Crabtown. Academics never 
pushed him hard, so he was active on the intramural 
squash, speedball, and basketball. He played plebe 
tennis, and later held down a varsity post. An ever 
faithful member of the flying squadron, he bore as his 
greatest cross the shortness of hop liberty. 



PLAINVIEW, MINNESOTA 

Hailing from the green carpeted hills of the Mississippi 
valley, Dale, with his English ancestry, belied the belief 
that all Minnesotans were Swedes. That he early showed 
aptitude to become a leader was shown by his ascend- 
ency to a seat in his high school's governing body, 
and to the presidency of his class. Like Diogenes and 
his lantern, Dale began a search for knowledge, a 
career, and a soul-mate. He found the first two upon his 
entrance to the Academy. The third he found hidden 
away in the small village of his birth and immediately 
imported her to Crabtown. Needless to say Dale's main 
extra curricular attraction was not found within the 
confines of the yard. His chief interests were classical 
music, military science, and ye old radiator squad.

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 

A true Southern gentleman in every sense of the word, 
Jack had little trouble shifting into the swing of things 
at the Academy. In fair weather he could always be 
found sailing the Severn in one of the "dinks." Having 
been born with a tiller in his hand, Jack was a natural 
for the dinghy team, after his years of Gulf experience 
in the "fish" class. When the days grew cold, he turned 
to the handball courts for his daily diversion from the 
books. Academically Jack never did take much of a 
strain, but consistently managed to stay well above 
average in his duel with the Academic Departments. 
In the drag department he chose to play the field. He 
took in his share of hops, but, having no OAO to capture 
his spare moments, he was not a weekly dragger. 



MIAMI, FLORIDA 

Beck was born in Miami, but that was only the beginning. 
He attended the University of California for eighteen 
months and spent two years with the Navy V-5 program. 
Plebe Summer found him in the boxing ring, and he 
continued to throw those gloves about off and on during 
his Academy career; soccer and varsity fencing also 
found use for the Beckwith coordination. On the extra- 
curricular side, the Photo Club, and the advertising staff 
of the LUCKY BAG helped dispose of the left-over 
hours. He didn't mind the Academy routine too much, 
taking all save Russian in that quiet, capable stride of 
his, but his heart was always in the clouds. Post-gradua- 
tion plans add up to "back aloft for the Beck!" With his 
background of experience and wealth of natural talent, 
he is sure of many happy landings.

TWIN FALLS, IDAHO 

As a mechanical engineer at the University of Colorado 
for three years, first as a civilian, and then as a V-12, 
Jack managed to acquire a Beta Theta Pi pin and a 
liking for Denver that even now puts a nostalgic gleam 
in his eye. Here, although basketball and volleyball 
occupied him at times, each spring and fall found him 
crossing shins for the company soccer squad. Plebe Year 
he devoted what time was left after academics and 
"coming around" were over to bridge, at which he was 
a shark, as numerous opponents will testify. After that, 
however, he returned to dragging, and few were the 
weekends he missed Dahlgren Hall's little Saturday 
parties. OAO material never showed up, however, and 
he left Navy with a free heart, much to the advantage 
of the fair sex from Norfolk to Timbuctoo.

PAOLA, KANSAS 

Bud, as he was affectionately known, arrived at Navy 
with his adopted Missouri attitude of "show me," and 
soon reversed the field by showing us a warm, congenial 
personality. Much preferring the radiator's warmth, Bud 
spurned the varsities and contented himself with leading 
the intramural sports teams and playing mean handball 
on spare afternoons. We would have heard much of 
him in sports had not his terrific way with the female 
of the species consumed a little too much of that valu- 
able weekend time. His academic motto was "Why 
study when you can bilge in peace?" but he kept far 
from bilging. Already a veteran of the early phases of 
Naval flight training. Bud aims to be "weighing sky 
anchors" as soon as the powers that be permit it. 



ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 

In coming to the Academy, Benny gave up college life 
for a chance to become a Naval Aviator. After finishing 
high school, he joined the V-12 training program, spend- 
ing a year at Western Michigan, and entering the Aca- 
demy on a college certificate, so he never had trouble 
with studies. Athletically inclined, he took part in almost 
every type of sport, his chief interests being swimming 
and soccer. He swam on his high school team for three 
years and participated in plebe and batt swimming at 
Navy. He took up soccer Plebe Year and was one of the 
mainstays on the company soccer team until he migrated 
to the J.V. team. Dick definitely planned to stay in the 
Navy hoping to earn a pair of Navy Wings.

SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA 

Brownie had planned for a Naval career even before he 
entered Bellarmine Prep for his secondary education, but 
before coming to Navy, he spent two years- at Stanford 
University in the school of mechanical engineering. He 
entered the Academy after passing the regular entrance 
exams to accompany his congressional appointment. The 
lacrosse stick with which he was usually seen while at 
Navy Tech was adopted Plebe Summer and put to good 
use during the succeeding years, for by Second Class 
Year he had graduated from plebe through J.V. to the 
varsity team. He also found time to play batt football 
during Plebe and Youngster Years. His Dago proficiency 
was due to leaves spent in Mexico City and Acapulco.

COLUMBIA, TENNESSEE 

With a natural nickname and a natural ability for win- 
ning many friends, this likable Tennessean took an 
active interest in his work here, with the conscientious 
desire to be a success in the Navy. Possessor of a per- 
sonal library of many treatises on Naval subjects, Toby 
hopes to enter the sub service after graduation. We 
best remember him for his unfailing pride in his native 
state, for his vocal renditions of such classics as "Wagon 
Wheels," for his French with a southern accent, and for 
a practically inexhaustible sense of humor. As orderly 
as a Mozart symphony, as punctual as the reveille bell 
(no late formations for this boy), Toby combined a re- 
liability and efficiency of the highest order with a thor- 
oughly amiable and considerate nature. 



William nt. Callaahan 

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

There'll be Navy wings on Bill's chest one of these days 
if BuAer will build a cockpit into which he can fold his 
six-foot frame. Since he was born into a Navy family, 
is was only natural that he would wind up at the Aca- 
demy after a year at Villanova in V-12. While in college 
he majored in M.E., but, in spite of the rigorous aca- 
demics, found time to play a creditable game of basket- 
ball. Here at Navy, he has been kept busy playing batt 
lacrosse and company football, basketball, and golf. 
There was a pretty girl in D.C. who had him completely 
in her clutches, so his weekends were far from dull. An 
easy man to find (no O.D. ever saw the top of his 
hat-cover) he was always ready to give a helping hand 
to classmate, shipmate, or damsel in distress.

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN 

John arrived from the land of milk, cheese, and beer 
fresh from two years at the U. of Wisconsin, where he 
had decided to trade a T-square for a sextant and come 
to "Canoe U." His mind was a hotbed of ingenuity, 
mechanical and otherwise, and this, plus an excellent 
sense of humor, resulted in infernal mechanisms and 
long-to-be-remembered incidents, such as the case of 
"the harnessed mouse." He put forth his major athletic 
efforts in the field of intramural sports, the list running 
from pistol to soccer, and was also active in executive 
sports, walk-running and rowing cutters with the rest of 
us. In regard to femmes, he was known as the slowest 
man on the flying squadron. He always, however, man- 
aged to slip into the Rotunda before the sword fell.

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA 

Although born and raised in Virginia, Rick attended 
New York University before entering the Academy. His 
interests were as varied as his background, and in- 
cluded classical music, golf, tennis, women, the sports 
page, Thomas Hardy, writing, the LOG, Greenwich Vil- 
lage, politics, and the New York Yankees. His main 
academic interest lay in the arts, although he did well 
in all. He was always ready for a bull session after 
dinner, and more often than not, a lively discussion of 
the forbidden subjects of the wardroom took place then. 
Proof of his popularity was that his room focussed men 
of all classes, each with his own nickname for Rick. To 
the man who could smile even at Monday breakfast, 
we say "It's been a pleasure, Rick." 



Charles I\ Cveil 

CHARLESTOWN, SOUTH CAROLINA 

To keep his affairs from being cluttered up entirely by 
Navy pursuits, Charlie regularly popped up with a new 
scheme to be developed when Naval matters were less 
pressing. Among his agrarian proposals were his con- 
templated farm at Flat Rock— more commonly known as 
"Level Pebble," and his spread out in Arizona— "Howdy, 
pahdnuh" was long the brand of our charming Charles. 
The latest of a long series was a proposed study of the 
potentialities of the stock market. Probably the most 
typical of Charlie's speculations for the future was "Plan 
Able" for retirement, "twenty yeahs, of course— nevah 
could stand thirty yeahs." Plan Abie's setting included 
a dignified captain sitting on his veranda, sipping cool 
mint juleps 'neath the shade of fragrant magnolias.

SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA 

Wade grew up in the midst of Dakota's plains, attending 
Shattuck School, where he lettered in track. After a 
year at Augustana College in Sioux Falls/he joined the 
Navy for a short time before entering the Academy on 
a congressional appointment. During Plebe Year he 
participated in plebe football and track, later playing 
batt football, company touch football and Softball. In- 
terested in all sports, he managed to keep up with most 
of them, although he had not decided whether they 
were worth all the effort. In the Academy, Wade claimed 
to have the best woman in the world as his OAO. Just 
a civilian at heart, he will let time determine his future.

WYNNEWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA 

In entering the Naval Academy, Al was following the 
footsteps of his father and grandfather. His conscientious 
and sincere interest in the Navy was buoyed up by a 
lifelong familiarity with this organization. On many eve- 
nings, he attended meetings of the Russian Foreign Lan- 
guage Club. In this club he found an added store of 
knowledge from their studies in Russian geography, 
economics, and authors. He also found opportunity to 
see the differences between their political system and 
ours. A capable athlete, he went out for battalion foot- 
ball, gym, touch football, and soccer. No matter what 
service branch he enters, his enthusiasm, cordial nature, 
and straight forward manner will make him a valuable 
officer. The family tradition will not suffer— perhaps some 
day Al will send his boy to Bancroft.

FAR ROCKAWAY, NEW YORK 

After high school, Ping managed to work in a year and 
a half at City College of New York before the Navy 
beckoned. His ears still ringing with the peculiar sound 
that gave him his nickname, Sonarman 2/c Bill "Ping" 
Collins entered the Academy via a fleet appointment 
and NAPS. Bill bolstered the company's sports standing 
with his activity on the soccer, Softball, football, and 
cross-country teams. Though no OAO claimed him as her 
own, he admitted that he was not altogether averse to 
such a possibility. A knowledge of electricity gleaned 
while he was an electron jockey gave him a worthwhile 
edge over those of us who wandered lost in the wilder- 
ness of juice. Definitely planning on a service career, 
Ping slated just "the Navy" as his objective. 





Kobvrl <W. ConUUn 

WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON 

Here at Navy, Conk was about as far from home as he 
could get without getting his feet wet. After graduating 
from Wenatchee High School, Bob went to Washington 
State for a year, where he picked up some engineering 
and a TEKE pin. At Navy, Conk's interests centered 
about his two great loves: basketball and jive. The 
winter, and most other, months found him streaking 
about the courts in plebe and JV basketball. He was 
also more than just a lover of jive; he played it, appro- 
priately enough, on the drums, and we'd often seen him 
helping out a combo during hop intermission. If Conk 
ever gives up that intention to "mount a 5" 738 on a 
canoe and go deer hunting in the wilds of Montana," 
it'll be a real pleasure to serve with the Wanatcheean 
again someday.

Stephen M. Dobbins 

CHEROKEE, IOWA 

Some called him carefree, others called him a serene 
and composed character; but, regardless of the descrip- 
tion Dob succeeded in leaving us all with the impres- 
sion that he would remain unruffled by any of the ordin- 
ary trials of John Q. Midn. In fact, it was often Steve 
who tossed off that petite quip, styled in the inimitable 
Dobbins manner, which produced the lightning chuckle. 
Most of his spare moments, and there were some, were 
spent absorbing the symphonic strains of the masters. 
We have all paused in passing by the "Dauber's" door 
to catch a phrase from the latest addition to his collec- 
tion of classics. Although he was a man of diversified 
interests, his first love was the open hunting ground of 
his native middlewest. In the future, Steve, "Good 
Hunting!" 



William M. Dennett 

KITTERY, MAINE 

Unlike a famous namesake, Bill has never been heard 
to complain of no new fields to conquer. In sports he 
achieved no little success, winning his numerals in plebe 
track, and playing on a championship company soccer 
team. It was natural for this Down East salt to place 
sailing high in preference, also. Bill showed that he 
was definitely not low-brow by his insatiable appetite 
for good books and good music. A protagonist of the 
"As goes Maine, so goes the nation" school, Bill has 
done a pretty good promoting job for the Pine Tree 
State, not to mention Kittery. He has made a place for 
himself here with his wit and grin. That he will also 
carve a place on the Navy family tree is certain. As 
he goes forth to win his dolphins, we have but one 
comment— "Look out, Davy Jones!" 



James <M). /JiVAioff 

AMSTERDAM, NEW YORK 

This happy face belongs to one half of a small opera- 
tional unit that was formed by a rather capricious coagu- 
lative process during 49's allotted four years. "The Dix" 
wound up at Navy after attending schools in Canada 
and the U. S., bringing with him a marvelous "here to- 
day," philosophy which stood him in good stead when 
the going got tough or when his varied love life got 
out of hand. Dix was never one to worry, particularly 
about the vagaries of the various powers, and as a re- 
sult weathered the usual tribulations and trials by error 
of midshipmen with a minimum of strain. He had plenty 
of time to satisfy his prodigious appetite for reading 
anything but an assignment, and managed to get in 
almost as much extra-curricular sack time as the other 
half of the unit, one Jesse James, under whose count- 
enance this short saga is concluded. (Continued under 
R. R. James.)

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

Before the Navy, Bill warmed up at Tech High School 
and at the home of the Ramblin' Wrecks, where, as a 
chemical engineering major, he had been Vice President 
of Lambda Simga Chi and a member of the Inter- 
fraternity Council for three terms. Then, after ten months 
as an AOM striker, he received a congressional ap- 
pointment and entered the Academy. Here he could be 
found almost any afternoon lashing his way through 
opponents in the fencing loft. His skill with the stilettos 
became so great that his B-robe boasted both numerals 
and an N*. Always searching for the girl, he hoped that 
he might find her before that glorious day, and in the 
meantime, joined those of us who were watching and 
waiting. 



Uittiam C. Dvtton 

HODGENVILLE, KENTUCKY 

Quiet and unpresuming, almost to the point of seeming 
shy, Bill was a gentleman of the old Kentucky school. 
An English major at Western Kentucky, he detoured 
through the Navy before the Academy claimed him. 
With academics among his lesser worries, he won 
numerals in plebe and company sports. An avid interest 
in engineering made him a charter member of the Aca- 
demy chapter of the A.S.M.E. Even the rigors of the 
system have not been able to make him lose his temper 
or raise his normally even tone. Although his home state 
is better known for its horsemen than its sailors, Bill 
has taken to sea life well. The men who serve under and 
with him will be lucky in having him with them.

WALLINGFORD, PENNSYLVANIA 

This versatile Pennsylvanian toyed with almost every- 
thing from duck hunting to model airplanes. That he 
was an overwhelming success in most of these under- 
takings is evident when we examine his record. First, 
Bart has been particularly adaptable to athletics. His 
fame as a wrestler spread far and wide, even to the 
point where he was receiving a generous bit of fan mail. 
He filled in the fall months playing football for the 
famous Navy 150 football team. Others will remember 
this friendly gentleman from the Main Line as a shrewed 
French scholar who spouted that language with con- 
siderable proficiency. Others yet will remember him as 
the man with the sax, and the skill and ability he showed 
with the alto sax was great. Bart, wing-mad, stick- 
happy lad that he is, wants to enter Naval Aviation.

FORT WORTH, TEXAS 

Mix a large portion of Texas with a dash of Brooklyn 
and don't be surprised at the results. Bill doesn't give 
out with the "boid," for he left Yankeeland at a very 
tender age. A year of V-12 at Texas Wesleyan College 
and two years at Rice Institute were spent majoring in 
chemical engineering. "Touche!" seemed to be one of 
Bill's passwords to success at Navy Tech. In the after- 
noons he usually could be found in the fencing loft. 
Bill was an embryo "Musketeeh," being a star performer 
on the varsity fencing team. Academics was another in 
the long line of easy battles for him. One of his extra- 
curricular activities was the Russian Club, where he 
learned to change that Texas drawl into a Slavic growl. 
As for dragging, Bill's motto remained, "variety is the 
spice of life." 



MONSESSEN, PENNSYLVANIA 

Valerio, Bill to his friends, could be recognized by the 
round face which always carried a big smile— enlarging 
as the going got tougher. He left Carnegie Tech after 
five months to enter the Army for two years as an Air 
Corps radioman. A congressional appointment and the 
Navy's preparatory school made him change services. 
While here. Bill was active in batt lacrosse and company 
soccer, but the sub squad instructor was the coach that 
really got to know him. The name Duronio was long 
prominent on the Reception Committee, as he enjoyed 
the informal weekend life without formations. Upon 
graduation he will make the line Navy a career and get 
married, claiming as his own the most wonderful OAO 
in the world. 



l^tntJ <W. Dyer 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

After four years of Jerry's sarcasm, we can laugh in 
the face of a broadside. All of us have felt the "razor's 
edge" at some time or other, but yet we liked it. Jerry 
was the ideal man for the Naval Academy, for forma- 
tions, p-works, D.O.'s, females, everything that made 
tranquillity impossible here never phased him— the only 
thing more pronounced than his sense of humor was the 
unbelievable nonchalance with which he accepted the 
system. Although he came a long way to Crabtown, 
Jerry's naval interest developed right at home, where 
he used to watch the Navy ships from his front porch. 
In graduating, he is just following a family tradition, as 
his brother was in 48-A. We will expect great things 
from Jerry's men, for, when faced with the alternative 
of Dyer sarcasm, they will have no choice but to excel.

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE 

Staggering steadily seaward from the still studded hills 
of Western Knoxville, Montraville Walker Egerton III, 
thanks to his training as an Eagle Scout, had little 
difficulty in blazing a trail to the hallowed hills of Ban- 
croft. In his years at Navy, Mont early became a mem- 
ber of that set commonly referred to as "sack hounds," 
easily completing his "one thousand study hours in bed" 
test before the end of Plebe Year. As to women, Mont 
again proved himself a true scout by constantly seeking 
territories to explore, new fields to conquer. Naturally 
his year and a half at the University of Tennessee en- 
larged somewhat on his early feminity training, but his 
later blind dates were the items of basic training which 
really counted.

CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND 

Both a Navy junior and an inhabitant of Maryland, 
Jo-Jo planned from the beginning for a Naval career, 
attending Gonzaga High School in Washington, and 
Columbia Preparatory School in preparation. A presi- 
dential appointment qualified him via the regular en- 
trance examinations. Here Ek was well known for his 
athletic abilities on the soccer field. Starting in Plebe 
Summer, he progressed from plebe to J.V. team in 
Youngster Year, and to the varsity team in Second Class 
Year. His interest in soccer, however, never eliminated 
his like for other sports, including dragging. Although 
he is hoping for a future in the Marine Corps, subs or 
aviation take a close second in his choice of a definitely 
Naval career.

Many suspected that Harry's background was responsi- 
ble for his savoir-faire of good living, for there were 
few who appreciated more the fine points of food and 
drink. As evidence of his popularity, often on cruise 
his mail nearly equalled the total of the rest, but it was 
as a conversationalist that he shone. The time might 
have been day or night the place might have been 
Baltimore, Colon, or Copenhagen; the company might 
have been mixed or stag; one thing was sure— in the 
center of a little circle we could find Frenchy discussing 
anything from politics to music to women with an inter- 
ested group of listeners. Many thought he should have 
been patented. Convivial, generous, considerate, droll — 
these four characteristics as embodied in Frenchy made 
a very satisfying blend.

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA 

Before launching his professional career, Jack attended 
Pasadena Junior College, where he engaged in tennis 
and public speaking, and spent a year and a half in 
the Navy. In the line of sports, his interests lay mainly 
with tennis. His extra-curricular activities were extensive: 
Glee Club, Trident Society, Musical Club Show, the 
Quarterdeck Society, and an honored position on our 
Class Ring Committee. He offered stiff competition in 
oratorical contests, and was a member of the Debating 
Team, becoming president of the Intercollegiate Forensic 
Society First Class Year. To overcome the distance ob- 
stacle he brought his bride-to-be East, for marriage and 
the Fleet were what he looked forward to most. 



CONCORDIA, KANSAS 

If Bo's character had been as crooked as his nose, his 
picture would have to have been printed on a perfor- 
ated page, but we all could vouch for this offshot of a 
Kansas wheat crop. The only man at the Academy to 
advocate compulsory P.T., Ats soon found himself a 
charter member of "Leroy's Gym," while working with 
company cross country and steeplechase, all of which 
served him in good stead with his occasional blind 
drags. Any list of his traits would be incomplete, for 
his friendliness, moral stability, and Blue and Golditis 
were only a few of those so admirably exhibited. At 
times it seemed as if his ambition wavered from flag 
rank to prune shooter in the local grocery store, but his 
interest in China gave the nod to a Naval career.

Bill went to Severn Prep to complete his high school 
education, and by junior year he had decided that 
Naval Tech was to be his alma mater. After graduation, 
he enlisted in the Navy and began training as a Combat 
Air Crewman in Norman, Oklahoma. His congressional 
appointment to the Academy qualified him to enter the 
Naval Academy Preparatory School, and from there he 
entered the Academy. At Navy Bill came to be best 
recognized for his eager participation in plebe and 
J.V. lacrosse, batt football, and his ability to make 
amazing quantities of food disappear in the wardroom. 
Bill's hoped-for future holds a career in Naval aviation 
and a thin, gold band on the finger of that certain OAO.

Stanley S. Mint* 

BRONX, NEW YORK 

The "Steamer" managed to get in and out of the 
Navy RT program in somewhat less than eight days- 
something of a record for short service. After NYU, 
Stan had fewer of those Academic blues than most, and 
could devote his spare time to the LOG, where he worked 
on circulation, pouring over the voluminous records he 
kept for study hour amusement. Politics was another big 
interest, and Second Class Year found S.S. on the 
Committee of the Wardroom Panel. These activities, 
combined with intramural sports and weekend duty with 
the Public Relations Committee, gave Stan little time for 
the fair ones, but once in a while he'd abandon that 
visiting team to pilot a young lady through the in- 
tricacies of a Navy weekend. 



£. Donald Hihow. Jr. 

HUNTINGDON, PENNSYLVANIA 

"Fish" came to us after spending a year at Bullis Prepar- 
atory School. At USNA he followed strictly the pursuits 
in which he had had an interest back in high school: 
track, a football managerial job, business staff of the 
yearbook, etc. He won class numerals both for being 
manager of his plebe football team and for being 
on the plebe track teams, and distinguishing himself at 
his first tryout for a play by winning a part in the 
Masquerader's dramatic production. Other sideline inter- 
ests which Don pursued were photography and astron- 
omy. The latter may predominate his later life. Fish was 
fairly well settled as far as a girl went, although he 
was not planning marriage immediately on graduation.

CINCINNATI, OHIO 

Wild Bill grew up in the Queen City and spent all but 
five years of his life there before entering the Academy. 
He received his schooling at Walnut Hills High and the 
University of Cincinnati. He studied pre-law for one year, 
giving it up to go to the Merchant Marine Academy, 
where he spent five months before coming to Naval 
Tech. His interests were many and varied, but journalism 
headed the list. He was editor of his high school paper 
and was given membership in the Quill and Scroll Soci- 
ety for his efforts. He also contributed to the TRIDENT 
during his Academy days. He liked all sports and was 
active in batt football, wrestling, and softball. Women 
definitely attracted him but he never did find that one 
and only.

SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK 

A sparkling intellect and a highly refreshing personality 
have been but two of Bill's outstanding features. He 
had very definite opinions on such frequently debated 
subjects as party politics— insiders said that he wore a 
Willkie button on his B-robe— and never failed to liven 
a bull session. With his natural flair for the arts— he 
dabbled in psychology and philosophy in college— he 
breezed through Bull here. He was fond of drama, and 
rightly, for this budding Maurice Evans has shown much 
skill in playing top roles with the Masqueraders. As well 
as these achievements, he was an athletic and social 
paragon as well, playing mean tennis and golf, and 
operating successfully on the dance floor. An officer 
before Navy, Bill returns to officer's country with his 
success assured. 



f p to an a tit 8P. Cjitawaaataat 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

Eph, an ex-sailor, put liberty at the top of his preference 
list. A native of Philadelphia, he studied at Drexel In- 
stitute of Technology prior to entering the Navy and 
coming to the Naval Academy from the enlisted ranks 
on the basis of a competitive exam. During his stay here 
he served on the LOG and eventually became an im- 
portant member of the staff of that publication. He 
nurtured his interest in engineering as a member of the 
Mechanical Engineering Club. With regard to aca- 
demics, he starred without slashing and continually 
found satisfaction in confusing the profs. On the week- 
ends, however, the books were forgotten, for Eph be- 
lieved that the weekend was God's gift to Midshipmen. 
We knew that underneath he was Blue and Gold. 



AMARILLO, TEXAS 

Red came to us after a stay at Marion Military Institute. 
Those twirling drumsticks which made up the rhythm 
section of the Brigade Drum and Bugle Corps had 
the Gobe tied on the other end. Batt wrestling, plebe 
lacrosse, J.V. lacrosse, J..V. soccer, and varsity cross- 
country were all at one time or another blessed with his 
attention. Alas for the Eastern seaboard Junes filles, Red 
was a taken man. His lovely OAO will be his bride 
immediately on graduation, or very soon thereafter. Red 
planned to shoot for the Marine Corps with the leather- 
neck artillery as a specific aim. Twenty years hence we 
may hear great things of him as coach of the all- 
Manchuria lacrosse squad (tenor drum lessons on the 
side). 




162 



WALTON, NEW YORK 

Mike's Irish eyes found something to smile at even 
through four years of humdrum Academy existence, al- 
though whether or not they were smiling at one of his 
notorious jokes would be a matter for conjecture. Aca- 
demically he would have made 49-A with little effort. 
Athletically, he was the mainstay of many excellent 
company volleyball and soccer squads. His major rec- 
reational inclination was music, of which he liked both 
the classics and the passing ditties. His hometown has 
been perpetuated in our memories by frequent quota- 
tions from the pages of its weekly journal. Mike's 
loyalty and forbearance will make him steadfast friends 
wherever he may go, while his studiousness and sin- 
cerity will make him a much-to-be-desired asset to the 
Navy.

(James <V. (Haley 

SCHROON LAKE, NEW YORK 

Three years, including a year and a half in V-12 at 
Cornell, where he was a Phi Delta Theta, a member of 
the council, and active in student publications, gave Jim 
a complex that bordered on the schizophrenic when we 
took on the "Big Red" in sports. He came to Navy with 
two ambitions— to star, and to drag. The first gave him 
little trouble, and the second made him an integral part 
of society from Crabtown to Goteborg, although he has 
at last settled down to walk up the aisle with his OAO 
on graduation. His extra-curricular activities included 
the LOG and TRIDENT, the Russian Club, and most of 
the intramural sports, especially soccer, where the 
Haley's king-size feet were almost as valuable as that 
do or die spirit that will make him a man to watch 
in the Fleet.

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY 

Phil's pre-Navy Tech life was highlighted by one year in 
the Kappa Alpha Order at Transylvania College, and 
three years as an RT in the Navy Air Corps. Athletically, 
GAP was a strong defense man for the varsity lacrosse 
squad, filling out of season time on batt boxing and 
wrestling teams. As for dragging, Phil could usually be 
found somewhere in Crabtown sharing half the hazards 
of a Navy weekend. One of these escapades led to 
semi-national recognition, for Phil and his drag made 
headlines in the Baltimore Sun— a Typical Annapolis 
Weekend! Among the requitals of Phil's life here at the 
Severn Trade School was his brutal rendition of "Horses 
Don't Bet on People," and, of course, there was "The 
Case of the Missing Bottle" at Virginia Beach.

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA 

Harvey, often called by his initials, migrated to us from 
Baton Rouge. At USNA he immediately found himself 
doing well scholastically, despite the fact that he spent 
a good part of Plebe Year in the hospital. Harv spent 
two years in the V-12 program at Tulane and as a 
civilian at Louisiana State University. Besides academics 
and the Mechanical Engineering and Photo Clubs, Har- 
vey was active in company 150 pound football, cross- 
country, volleyball, soccer, and swimming. Harvey's in- 
terest in a Naval career began early— even before he 
joined the Sea Scouts in his youth. It was undecided 
whether he would enter Naval Aviation or pursue more 
closely his engineering interests. 



Date (P. Helmer 

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA 

Helma undoubtedly spent his pre-Naval years keeping 
Nash and Oklahoma City, his present hometown, in a 
partial uproar. Whether or not the fact that Dale once 
belonged to a Pep Club had anything to do with it, 
he possessed more vitality than half the rest of his class 
combined. After graduation from high school, Dale spent 
one year as an enlisted man in the Navy, and received 
a fleet appointment to the Academy. Academics never 
really caused much worry on his part he found plenty of 
time for the varsity pistol and J.V. soccer teams, for 
Glee Club, and for dragging. Dale was still undecided 
about whether his future would be Naval or civilian, 
but whatever his decision, may it be the best one. 



juhat { U). Wetmamm 

BURLINGTON, IOWA 

After wending his way in and out of various academic 
institutions, Half-hitch took a look at the Navy. In due 
course, he gravitated to the Academy, where, at low 
tide, as he puts it, he has found his own level. What 
has he done? He has waged a relentless battle with 
academics— from the confines of his sack, or from behind 
his current extra-curricular book. He has planned grand 
strategy against the execs. He has painstakingly com- 
piled statistics on women in his very complete little black 
book. He has managed to make the steep climb to the 
wrestling loft on several occasions. He helped plan the 
business end of our class ring. He has been a burden 
to mailmen from Poughkeepsie to Hammarbyhojden. 
What more?

£. Chipman Wiggins 

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA 

Chip, born in New York City, called Jacksonville, Flor- 
ida, his hometown. Higgy graduated from Balles Military 
School in Jax and later attended Harvard for one term 
as a V-12 student. In both schools he excelled in swim- 
ming and at Balles was team captain. Chip was in the 
Navy for two years before he entered the Academy by 
fleet competition. Here, too, he took up swimming. He 
held one-third of a batt relay record and earned his 
class numerals and N*. Besides swimming, Chip liked 
music and was partial to records, ond most of all went 
for the blues and southern folk music. He will make 
Navial Aviation his career, but some day Chip would 
like to return to Balles and be an instructor there. 



Charles 111. Mow*** 

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK 

Chuck was slated to become an electrical engineer after 
spending three years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. 
However, in 1945 he left Phi Epsilon Phi and V-12 in 
favor of the Academy. Chuck gained star recognition 
on the varsity soccer team, and battalion lacrosse team. 
The Photo Club, and the Math Club were but some of 
Chuck's outside interests. Ever since he won a mathe- 
matics cup at Onondaga Valley Academy, Chuck de- 
cided that academics was doing what comes naturally. 
Dragging was a must on Chuck's endless list of things 
to do. Almost every weekend would find him hurrying 
towards the Toonerville Trolley and another drag. Writ- 
ing letters during study hour, plus a complex against 
the five mile limit numbered Chuck's few weaknesses at 
Navy.

PORTLAND, OREGON 

From the Northwest country came "J. P.", an Oregonian 
who preferred the sun of southern California to the rain 
and ducks of Oregon. But, between rushing around on 
fishing and skiing trips, John developed into a fine cross 
country and track man, bringing home the bacon for 
Navy many times. Also interested very much in litera- 
ture and poetry, he wrote several stories for the LOG 
and quite a number for the TRIDENT. Having started 
his hobby early with the high school paper, and served 
here at the Academy as Poetry Editor of the TRIDENT, 
he will no doubt continue this interest upon graduation. 
His main interest, however, was his OAO— he was a 
constant dragger, with academics coming way down on 
his list, of course.

MUNSTER, INDIANA 

Bud came to us from Munster (he always claimed Chi- 
cago as a suburb). After graduation from high school 
he attended Purdue University and the University of 
Virginia in the V-12 program. His college experience 
gave him time for many extra-curricular activities, among 
them the Class Crest Committee, the Ring Dance Com- 
mittee, the 1/c Hop Committee, the Musical Clubs and 
the TRIDENT magazine. His sense of humor was famous 
—who will ever forget his portrayal of the professor in 
OUT ON A LIMB? He boxed and swam, but his first 
love was writing, and most of his time was spent pound- 
ing out short stories, poems and plays. As far as the 
femmes go, he is probably still looking. 



James C itiMjlu't. Jr. 

CHATEAUGAY, NEW YORK 

During his "undergraduate" days, Jim found ample time 
to excel in such diverse fields as basketball and thermo- 
dynamics, not to mention several other activities. There 
were few who were as well read as this informed 
gentleman, who digested whole volumes with great 
speed, and was equally at home with John Milton and 
Milton Caniff. Having served as an aviation cadet prior 
to entering the Academy, air-minded Jim hoped to re- 
turn to that branch of the service after graduation. His 
experience with de-icers, however, was not limited to 
aeronautics, for he has mastered a deft and subtle ap- 
proach toward his numerous feminine friends. Blessed 
with a thoroughly likeable personality and a warm 
friendly nature, this smoothest of operators will be the 
life of the party in perpetuum. 



James S. friarst 

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

"The Hairy Ape" was another of the numerous family 
of Navy Juniors. Born in North Carolina and having 
lived throughout the United States, he claimed Cali- 
fornia as his home, and was the only man alive who 
could out-talk the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce 
on the beauties of Sunland. Jim came directly to the 
Academy from high school, where he won the beard 
growing contest at the tender age of sixteen. He spent 
most of his time here cutting throat in Steam and rip- 
ping old radios apart just to see how they worked. 
Cruise found him happily tracing steam lines in the 
engine spaces. His two main extra-curricular activities 
Were blondes and beer. He also liked brunettes and 
redheads, but was determined to remain a bachelor 
for years to come.

John Of. M*4*w% 

SOUTH PASADENA, CALIFORNIA 

John graduated from Loyola High School in Los Angeles, 
where he was captain of the swimming team; he also 
swam on the Pasadena Athletic Club swimming team. 
He attended Central Missouri State Teacher's College 
under the Navy V-12 program for awhile and later 
sonar school as a soundman for the Navy. John spent 
two years in the Fleet before entering the Academy on 
a congressional appointment, taking the regular exams. 
He liked sports and continued his swimming with a reg- 
ular job on the varsity swimming team from the very 
beginning of his Academy career. He participated in 
lacrosse Plebe Summer, but found that his swimming 
claimed most of his available time. John was interested 
in radio and spent a good bit of his leisure time read- 
ing on the subject. 



(Rodney Jam&s 

BOULDER, COLORADO 

(continued from J. D. Dickson) "The Jess" crawled out 
from under a Colorado Boulder, adjusted the vine leaves 
in his already thinning and retreating locks, and jumped 
off to see what this Navy stuff was all about. He brought 
with him a dry wit and a fair repetoire of sea stories, 
both of which helped to while away the long winter 
evenings— between bridge hands, that is. His varied 
interests ran from sailing to sleeping, with emphasis 
somewhat on the latter, to spending a good deal of 
time occupied with deep reflections on the caprices of 
the female mind. All in all, it has been a grand four 
years, and neither of us would have missed it for any- 
thing, because there were times when we almost did. 






Claude £. J&fjeri&s 

TOLEDO, OHIO 

Jeff was born and raised in Toledo and earned an ARM 
3/c rating during his three years in the Fleet. During 
Youngster Year he served as treasurer of the Foreign 
Language Clubs, as well as being a member of the 
varsity gym squad. The Mechanical Engineering and 
Photo Clubs took up the rest of his time. Quiet and 
reserved, Jeff had more than his share of trouble with 
the Academic Department. Holding true to the old 
adage that still water runs deep, he neither boasted nor 
even spoke about his women and drags. Any big hop, 
however, usually found him going through the receiving 
line with some lucky lovely. Jeff, who was strictly a 
submarine man, was a staunch supporter of the Good 
Neighbor Policy, and regretted that the cruises never 
went to S.A.

CALDWELL, IDAHO 

Coming to the Academy via the College of Idaho, where 
he was a member of many social and honorary societies, 
D 2 plunged himself into "social" extra-curricular activi- 
ties Plebe Year. With one eye on the Academic Depart- 
ments, he divided his time between the Public Relations 
Committee, the Reception Committee, and the LOG. 
Although at one time he was a budding sabre star, a 
broken finger forced him to assume managerial duties 
with the fencing team. A Norwegian girl and Second 
Class Cruise made him a proponent of the Good Neigh- 
bor policy with Scandinavia. Far from being a social 
butterfly, however, Dallas thought seriously about life, 
and was an important contributor to any philosophical 
bull session. Since the Navy has no ships on the plains 
and hills of his home state, his ultimate goal is Pacific 
duty. 



mbert ML JvnUs. Jr. 

DIXON, ILLINOIS 

Dixon's contribution to the '49'ers was a man of whom 
both Dixon and '49 could be proud. Al first showed 
his good looks on the plebe football field. He followed 
this up with a year of JV ball, only to be won over the 
next season by the ham'n'eggers, although he had never 
seen a lacrosse stick before he came here. In the dark 
winter months, Al could usually be found getting a work- 
out on the handball court. Academically he managed 
to stand just high enough to avoid worry and just low 
enough so that he did not have to strain to stay there. 
Socially Al stood out. Dood, as "she" called him, man- 
aged to be one of the few to enter and leave Sea- 
side with the same dream girl on his mind. Yes, OAO 
really meant "One and Only" to him. 



C Ml. Johitivit. Jr. 

RIDGEWOOD, NEW JERSEY 

Our man with the cameras, a well known bystander at 
almost every activity, has had a third eye since high 
school, and developed his skill for two years as a pho- 
tographer's Mate 3/c before coming to Navy via NAPS. 
As the Photographic Editor of this book, he has been 
the man responsible for many of the fine shots in it. 
Aside from "shutterbugging," Ted has occupied himself 
with dragging and building a model railroad car. Aca- 
demically, his only worry was coaching the profs on 
the orthographic peculiarities of his name— "that's John- 
sen with an En, Sir!" Coupled with a keen sense of 
humor and a pleasing personality, Ted's perseverance 
and savoir-faire leave little doubt of his success. His 
aspirations center around the wings of Naval aviation, 
and especially on aerial photography.

Qcwald &i. Jones 

PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA 

From the great wheat plains of the upper midwest, 
Jerry moved to Plattsmouth, and soon considered this 
his hometown. In Plattsmouth High he lettered in foot- 
ball, served on the student council, and edited the school 
paper. Upon graduation he went to the University of 
Nebraska on a scholarship, leaving college at the end 
of one term to join the Navy. With a congressional ap- 
pointment, he entered NAPS at Camp Perry, Virginia, 
and thus to the Academy. Jerry's sports during his career 
were batt and company football and batt lacrosse. He 
owned numerals in football, having been a star per- 
former on a batt championship squad. He claimed music 
and sports as hobbies, with a very definite interest in 
a particular one of the opposite sex. 



WANWATOSA, WISCONSIN 

Tom left the frontier town of Wanwatosa to prove the 
versatility of a landsman as a mariner. Two years at 
Michigan enabled him to breeze through the academics 
with an enviable ease, and kept the library staffs con- 
stantly occupied indexing and filling out cards, as he 
read book after book, shelf after shelf. Not to be out- 
done in other fields, Tom joined the soccer team Plebe 
Year, and was in no small way responsible for Navy's 
spectacular past four seasons. When soccer was out 
of season, all was bedlam until it was finally decided 
which company or batt sport could claim him. Scarcely 
a mail delivery was made when Tom was not a happy 
recipient, for the girls in his life were as legion as his 
pipes, and far more attractive. If his future lives up to 
its promise, it will be rich indeed.

KOKOMO, INDIANA 

"Big Tom" came to the Academy via Notre Dame and 
Iowa State, where he had studied mechanical engineer- 
ing. This background plus his natural inquisitiveness 
were perhaps the reasons for his not being content, as 
most were, merely to plug formulae, and for his inves- 
tigation of principles. While most were thumbing through 
manuals frantically, Tom would be calmly and coolly 
deriving to arrive at the solution. Far overshadowing his 
academic acumen, however, was his interest and par- 
ticipation in sports— all sports in general, football and 
lacrosse in particular. With little previous experience in 
football, and none in lacrosse, Tom achieved that meas- 
ure of success which comes only to the persevering. His 
composure and good humor will stand him in good 
stead through the trying days to come to success.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN 

Bill came to us fresh from eighteen months in the Army 
Air Corps and a year spent at Wayne University in 
Detroit as a civilian. The Army gave him another six 
months of college work at Oklahoma A & M, making 
certain that Kreamy's years in the academic tussle here 
would have a firm foundation. The ease with which he 
spoke Spanish was a source of amazement to all and 
should be a source of great opportunity in later life. 
Bill's fine voice assured him of a place in the Academy 
Choir. Aside from his singing he excelled in the fencing 
loft, going from the plebe team to win his letter plus 
that coveted star Youngster Year. Although no marriage 
plans loomed on the graduation horizon, Bill always had 
a reputation for dragging a good number of queens. 



HILLSBORO, KANSAS 

With considerable college background, and surpassing 
most of us in diligence, Verp took the academic hurdles 
in easy stride. Athletically he maintained this stride 
leading the company cross country and steeplechase 
teams through their battles of each year. As a plebe, 
Verp was a man with connections— a brother in the 
second class— but he made himself famous on his own 
with the aid of a holystone on Youngster Cruise. Many 
were the jokes tossed his way but none could match 
him with the infamous stone, which displayed his char- 
acteristic approach to a duty— really carrying a thing 
through. Regarding women, Verp has been a firm be- 
liever in the OAO, and plans to marry on graduation. 
After marriage, Naval Aviation seems like the thing, but 
surface duty in the line runs a close second. 



JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK 

Here Ed became associated with the LOG circulation 
staff, which position kept his extra-curricular time well 
occupied. Yet, he always seemed to find time for that 
dragging weekend. Come liberty time, one could usu- 
ally depend on finding him walking through Crabtown 
escorting another lovely belle. Among the company 
sports teams which have depended on Ed's reliable 
ability have been fieldball, volleyball, and cross coun- 
try, and his prowess with a lacrosse stick was soon real- 
ized in batt competition. Ed will always be remem- 
bered for having found the acme of feminine sophistica- 
tion, as was evidenced by the LOG Plebe Year. Ed 
always fought a tiring yearly battle without even 
Tecumseh's help, trying to read those blurry letters on 
the eye charts, but always defeated the medics and 
came out sat.

SCARSDALE, NEW YORK 

Bob originally came from Honolulu, Hawaii, where he 
attended Punahau High School and swam backstroke 
on the school's swimming team. He made his first trip 
to the United States in order to attend Rutherford's Pre- 
paratory School in Long Beach, California. Since his 
entrance into the Naval Academy, the Kuhnes have 
moved to New York— a place Bob adopted with the 
customary zeal of any New Yorker. Definitely not a 
Red Mike, Bob with his OAO was a familiar sight at 
the weekend social functions within the dragging limits 
of Annapolis. He took everything in stride as it came, 
with an ample application of dry humor and an incon- 
ceivable ability to keep a straight face in all circum- 
stances. Easy going Bob was a warm friend to all of us. 








HOUSTON, TEXAS 

Paul was a Texan born and bred, even though he came 
to Navy after two years' majoring in physics at Wheaton 
College, in Illinois. Having been a Math devotee from 
way back, he joined the Math Club early in Plebe Year. 
There was also a Mechanical Engineering Club meet- 
ing to take part in every week, but most of his free time 
went to a third interest— chess. Using a faculty for play- 
ing a cutthroat game, he became a mainstay of the 
Chess Club and the chess team, traveling all over the 
country looking for new subjects for that checkmate deal 
that worked so well with the rest of us. This genial 
Texan also gave of his talents to the gymnastics, steeple- 
chase, swimming, and sailing teams. Graduation found 
Paul ready to go up the aisle, for his OAO waited for 
this lucky man. 





Mian f/. /<*#/##<* 

PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY 

Three years of E.E. at Middlebury College and Wor- 
cester College had prepared Al for almost everything 
the Academic Departments could think up. Preferring 
the comforts of his sack and a good book to the rigors 
of dragging, Lefty wasn't seen with the women too 
often, but when he did give a girl a break, she was 
usually a queen. Bell bars and weights took precedence 
over his southpaw pitching after Plebe Year. With ex- 
perience garnered as advertising manager of his high 
school yearbook, he became an important cog in the 
LUCKY BAG's staff. A believer in fair and impartial 
opinions, he came to recognize the importance of the 
Naval system, and, with his respect and pride for the 
Navy and its institutions, he will be an excellent officer, 
and as popular in the Fleet as here.

on a reserve appointment from NAPS. Between high 
school and Navy he spent three semesters at the Uni- 
versity of Cincinnati, where he majored in chemistry. 
Pete held up his end in company sports by his participa-

betimes, wielded a mean stick for the battalion lacrosse 
squad. He spent the first two years busily hunting for

OIL CITY, PENNSYLVANIA 

Calling Oil City "Home", Jack began his Naval chron- 
ology shortly after graduating from Oil City High 
School. Franklin and Marshall College was the scene of 
the V-12 training he received before being commis- 
sioned in the Navy from Northwestern University Mid- 
shipman School. Immediately following began ten 
months as a naval officer stationed on board a costal 
minesweeper. The spring of 1945 found him giving up 
the gold stripe for membership in the brigade. Even 
though he put in plenty of hard work on academics, 
there was still time to row for both plebe and battalion 
crew. "Maggie's" skill in keeping the accounts of the 
Trident Society in good order while in the capacity of 
Treasurer should help him in his Supply Corps career. 



John D. £und 

RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA 

The thing that we remember best about Dit was his 
abiding interest in music, for all the current songs, 
whether smooth stuff or rhythm tunes got sympathetic 
treatment from him. Not confining his talents to music 
alone, Dit made plenty of time to spend with his num- 
erous drags. At last report he was still in the explorer 
category, but indications showed him the home-loving 
type. In athletics, John was a sharp man with a pistol- 
probably a carry-over from his gun-toting days in west- 
ern South Dakota. The academic barrage, which made 
the strong pale, was met with John's usual nonchalance 
—some, witnessing this approach, shook their heads, but 
as more wasted away before the onslaught, became 
convinced that his head held more than song alone.

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA 

This future fly boy from Wheeling, West "By God" Vir- 
ginia, signed up in V-5 in June '43 and left for Memphis 
to serve at NAS as a Tarmack for four months. His 
career in the Air Corps was cut short when he trans- 
ferred to V-12 at Carson-Newman in Jefferson City, 
Tennessee. The next and last stop before coming to 
the Academy was the NROTC unit at the University of 
South Carolina. As for his extra-curricular activities, 
his prize ability, swimming, which he pursued for his 
high school and college days, was laid aside at Navy 
for company soccer, pushball, and golf. Dragging, 
though not extensive, was by no means minor. A good 
bit on the OAO side, he occasionally varied his drags 
to insure pleasant weekends at the hops and other social 
events. 



LEAD, SOUTH DAKOTA 

Bob was known to the folks at home as Robert, but his 
friends at the Academy have called him Bob. He re- 
ceived his secondary schooling at Lead High School 
and attended the University of South Dakota for two 
years, enjoying a life of leisure and fun. Because of 
his college work however, he was able to relax a little 
in our engineering courses. During high school days, 
Bob was on the track team, but here he tried his hand 
at boxing, batt football, and softball. Good natured 
in all respects, he gave plebes little to fear when they 
met him. He liked a good social life— plenty of parties 
and girls. His ambition is the Naval Air Corps and a 
certain OAO who has been patiently waiting back in 
Dakota.

William 7. Mtarr 

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA 

Before coming to the Academy, Bill saw his share of 
academics at the Universities of California and North 
Carolina, and NAPS. This experience had qualified him 
in the know-how, so his study periods were divided be- 
tween study and relaxation, relaxation predominating. 
Besides sacking-in for a pastime, Bill had a weakness 
for dragging blind, and few were the weekends that 
he was seen without a queen. In the field of sports, 
although not too husky, Bill's frame was deceptive, and 
he has been a valuable asset to many battalion and 
company sports squads, excelling especially in water 
polo. His easy-going nature was personified in his nick- 
name, "Spider." Bill took a lot of ribbing, but as soon 
as California entered the conversation, this son of the 
Golden State saw to it that all joking ceased.

BIG RAPIDS, MICHIGAN 

Tim broke into Naval Tech directly from a course in hot 
flying under the V-5 program. He reluctantly trod terra 
firma to class each day, but, given a choice, he would 
have been up in the "wild blue yonder," buzzing the 
sea gulls over Chesapeake Bay. Before shedding his 
civilian status, Timothy studied electrical engineering 
for a year at the University of Michigan, and he'll rave 
on about his old alma mater at the slightest provoca- 
tion. A natural as an athlete, Tim achieved perfection 
in any sport in which he participated, football and fenc- 
ing being his favorites. Always a good man in a bull 
session, never too busy to listen to a buddy's troubles 
and sorrows, McCoy stood knee deep in self-confidence 
and determination as a typical fighting Irishman. 



UNION CITY, TENNESSEE 

Christened Robert Moorman, but better known to all 
hands as Mac, this asset to life at the Naval Academy 
came to us from West Tennessee, where he was a star 
athlete in high school. After a year of preparation 
spent in V-5 at Milligan College, he became a freshman 
in the Class of '49. Having early demonstrated a love 
of things mechanical, such as the hidden intricacies of 
motorcycles and the kinetic energy of pool balls, he 
succeeded in dodging the snares of the Academic De- 
partments. The friendly smile and ready wit of which 
he was the possessor will make this lover of hunting, 
poker, four-part mountain music, and the pursuit of 
women long remembered as the center of many a bull 
session. 



J. Hush m<j>it<t<> 

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN 

Notre Dame's ambassador to Bancroft brought along a 
seabag of impartial literature on the football teams of 
the Fighting Irish. Rusk didn't limit his sports activity 
to the grandstand, though, because he led the com- 
pany team to brigade championship, and played num- 
ber one singles on the batt tennis team. A savoir, he 
spent much time helping classmates and giving poker 
lessons to those who dared. With two and a half years 
at Notre Dame behind him, Jerry was the library's best 
customer for fiction. Girls ranked next to sports in his 
life, and rare was the weekend of a big function that 
"Monster" was without a drag. Rusk will take more than 
an optimistic outlook on life to the fleet, for he has the 
ability and will to make all his endeavors meet with 
success.

John C. McCoy 

PALOUSE, WASHINGTON 

J.C. (or Jack, Mac, or Johnnie — he answers to them all) 
came to Crabtown straight from V-12 at the University 
of Southern Idaho. Just a little guy when he came here, 
the pride of Palouse gained fifty pounds during the 
first two years on the steady hours and good chow, 
making himself a hard-hitting fullback for the batt foot- 
ball team. Though he worked hard at sports, Jack was 
never a great athlete, but when he played a game, he 
played for keeps and to win. Johnnie expects to make 
the Navy a career, with line duty his preference. Long 
a strong supporter of the Navy, he has shown this by 
his avid interest in anything to do with the service. Quiet 
and efficient, Jack gets along very easily with his fellows 
and will doubtless make an excellent shipmate. 



Thomas £. meDotsald 

WEBSTER GROVES, MARYLAND 

"Unmilitary conduct (talking in ranks)" became a fa- 
miliar phrase to Terrible Tom. A natural conversation- 
alist, he seemed always to be at odds with the Execu- 
tive Department, although four years of Navy discipline 
developed plenty of reserve in ranks. Tom's chief in- 
terest here was sailing. He worked hard at it, learned 
much, taught much, and distinguished himself by winning 
one of the coveted billets on the Navy entry to the 
1946 Bermuda race. More than just a sailor, Tom proved 
himself in the field of writing by his excellent articles 
in the LOG, and, of course, there was always plenty of 
time for dragging. We will remember Tom for his sin- 
cere, loyal, and able efforts to improve the Brigade. 
But above this, we will remember him as one whose 
friendship we value highly. 






Charles <3L Vltcloy 

CHEROKEE, IOWA 

From the plains of the midwest came this cornfed lad 
who maintained that, next to his sack, Iowa was the 
best place to be. His year as a Sigma Chi at George 
Washington made Navy seem like Alcatraz, but he 
diverted himself with basketball and volleyball, where 
his height gave him an advantage. His policy with 
women seemed to be one of rotation, since he didn't 
want his already abundant fan mail to drive his stand- 
ing down, he dragged favorably and frequently. His 
interest in current political and international affairs 
caused him many a trip through the hall seeking the 
latest Time and Newsweek, but with all the facts at his 
fingertips, he livened up many a conversation. His great- 
est asset was an ability to get along with others, which 
should be a help in the future.

NORTH PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND 

Ed came to Navy with a B.S. degree from Providence 
College and a year in Navy Radio Technician School 
as a background. After winning a close one from Plebe 
Steam, he ceased to let academic ogres bother him, 
and was left plenty of time to help less fortunate class- 
mates with Dago, Math, Skinny, or Juice, which were 
his "forty" subjects. When Saturdays rolled around, Ed 
preferred women and cameras. It was, therefore, nat- 
ural that we found Ed with drag and camera in hand, 
looking for new subjects each weekend. We found his 
address books and photo albums among the fullest when 
he packed his cruise box for the last time. The outstand- 
ing thing we will remember about Ed is the helpful way 
he had of lending out his developing tank or setting 
to rights a temperamental radio.

Raymond £. <milter 

BERKELY, MICHIGAN 

Having joined the fourth class only a few short days 
before the fourth class joined the Brigade, Ray had 
hardly recovered from one storm when another befell 
him. In his own words, that first meal with the upper- 
class was "the end of the world." He delayed quitting 
his home state long enough to gain an excellent back- 
ground at Wayne University and the University of 
Michigan, so academics proved a light burden. Although 
from his studious appearance and academic success, we 
assumed at first that here was a slash, soon the word 
was out— that Ray was the epitome of "gentlemen of 
leisure." It was characteristic of Ray that he was one 
to practice what he preached, and he always strove to 
set the right example. This, combined with his innate 
ability, will assure him success in his career.

EL1ZABETHTOWN, KENTUCKY 

In a small town of eight thousand located deep in our 
blue grass state began the story of another forty-niner. 
Starting his wanderings from Elizabethtown, John be- 
gan his military career in the ASTP program, majoring 
in civil engineering at the Universities of Kentucky and 
Ohio State. The appointment to Navy ended his life 
with the Army and marked the beginning of the four 
year road at the Academy, with its good laughs and 
bitter trials. John's time at Navy was spent chiefly in 
wrestling, at which he proved to be a tough, agile op- 
ponent for anyone in the loft. He was regarded an 
artist in his relationships with the fair sex. In a few 
more years John will have lived a life full of valuable 
experiences and will probably be an authority on living 
happily.

George £. (ttiaffcii, Jr. 

COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY 

Moff arrived at Navy Tech after two years as a cadet 
in the Naval Air Corps, having spent three semesters 
learning some mechanical engineering at Penn State in 
the Navy's college program. Arriving too late to take 
part in Plebe Summer activities, he made up for lost 
time by making his numerals on the plebe gym team. 
Youngster Year saw Moff begin his varsity sojourn by 
winning his letter on the parallel bars. Wherever there 
were two pipes or pieces of wood resembling his be- 
loved bars, he could be found demonstrating his art. 
Due to his stay in the air corps, Moff definitely had his 
sights set on being a full fledged fly-boy. Wedding bells 
were not expected to ring immediately, but Moff was still 
keeping a good eye open for the girl. 



JSgta'B aj <U)~ S83i*M'ej4iti* Jr. 

TOLEDO, OHIO 

After graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy, Harry 
entered the Army, where he saw service in the Philip- 
pines—namely Leyte. His love for the Army was so great 
that he finally ended here at Navy, where, in addition 
to being a varsity soccer man, he was a backstroke ex- 
pert on the varsity swimming team. His extra-curricular 
activities seemed to be divided between the Russian 
Club and the stock market. One of Harry's main inter- 
ests in life seemed to lie somewhere in his stomach, for 
he was strictly eager when chow call sounded. After 
two years' trying to win the favor of a crab, Harry 
gradually moved up her list as each preceding class 
graduated his competition. He was her steady dragger 
at concerts and Musical Club Shows.

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

If Andrew doesn't make Admiral, it will be no fault of 
his own. A beaver from way back, the blue and gold 
fairly flowed from this bit of California sunshine. Born 
in Crabtown, like a good Navy Jr., he later called 
the west coast his home. Entering the Academy after 
a year of prep school in San Diego, he settled down 
to raising the class Bull average and lamenting the 
passing of Dago with Youngster Year. Though not go- 
ing in for sports much, Andy managed to turn out for 
soccer and tennis with a regularity that would be a 
credit to Old Faithful. His interests included sleeping, 
reading with the passion of a Supply Corps candidate, 
and singing. A Red Mike from way back, Andy lived 
firmly in the belief that "women are a snare and a 
delusion."

UTICA, NEW YORK 

From her bounty the Empire State proudly sent forth 
the mighty ALP to become a pampered pet of Uncle 
Sam. The carefree preparation at Camp Perry had no 
model designed on the principles of the Exec Depart- 
ment, but Tony learned fast. His name made few ap- 
pearances on the left side of a Form 1. It was a rare 
evening for the taps inspector who was greeted by a 
wide-awake Tony, for his sack was his favorite mode 
of exercise, when he wasn't swimming, or checking on 
his financial condition. Although his first love was 
horses, he roamed the field keeping the local girls 
happy with his sea stories. Possessing a keen sense of 
humor characterized by a hearty laugh, Tony could 
always be counted on for some cheer whenever a class- 
mate was CISed or bricked. 



tVitiiam J. Harris 

LAMESA, TEXAS 

When the strains of the "Eyes of Texas" echoed down 
the corridors, you could always find Bull braced up. A 
Texan by birth and education, he spent a year strug- 
gling with civil engineering at "The University." After a 
year of service, Bill came to the Academy, where his 
earlier intellectual struggles at Texas, plus his own 
know-how and application, paid off. His athletic career 
for the Navy was varied, revolving upon soccer, lacrosse, 
and those fast winter games of intramural football. 
Soccer was his strong point as the junior varsity and 
varsity squads well knew. On those weekends when 
Friday's mail seemed to have brought that unforgivable 
letter, Bill made up for the lack of feminine companion- 
ship by heading out with the boys for a good steak 
dinner. 



John M. €f)estewwei€new 

DURAND, WISCONSIN 

Johnny came to Navy after a year of college in Wiscon- 
sin, with a fine record in high school football and one 
year of collegiate competition behind him. He played 
guard on the plebe team, following it by a short stay 
on the J.V. squad until ailing knees forced him to leave 
the team. His love of football was not to be denied, 
and for three years he was the mainstay of his batt 
team in that sport. Next to football, John's main in- 
terests were hunting and fishing. Once each year, after 
the Army game, he stepped out of character and spent 
a weekend to end all weekends. His love of a good 
time and of companionship made him an enjoyable 
classmate. His interest in flying seemed to point toward 
a future in the Naval Air Corps.

Donald C. Mantle 

BUFFALO, NEW YORK 

Friendliness, amiability, and self-confidence were among 
Don's natural attributes. He leaped the academic 
hurdles with the certainty that came of practice, for he 
was a conscientious student, succeeding despite the fact 
that he came to Navy without the fortification of previ- 
ous college training. Some of his Dago classmates will 
always admit that Don often played the part of a 
savoir in the last minute rush to complete the assign- 
ments due in class that day. A basketball natural, 
"D.C." consistently supported his company teams the 
year round, and to these he gave his all. It will be 
well for the Fleet if the Navy holds the same attraction 
for him, for we are confident that he will act accord- 
ingly and will always be a benefit to the Service. 




/%/*/### r#l J m (Peterson 

REDONDO BEACH, CALIFORNIA 

This native son of California came to the sunny Severn's 
shores determined to make good at the Naval School. 
Much to the dismay of his classmates, his slide rule al- 
ways seemed to grind out answers faster and with 
greater accuracy than did theirs, and his ability to ease 
through academics left him plenty of time to follow his 
first and great love, sailing. His sailing experience has 
been great and varied, and coupled with his ability, it 
made him a valued asset to the Navy entry in the 1946 
Bermuda race. Although academics and sailing always 
managed to take up quite a lot of his time, Pete never 
failed for long to drag with the rest of us, and his 
queens were well known. As Pete goes to the fleet, he 
takes with him our best wishes for a happy and suc- 
cessful career.

CENTRAL CITY, NEBRASKA 

Some may recall Mac's dignified position on the Hop 
Committee for three years, climaxed by a position on 
the Ring Dance Committee, but few will forget his role 
as that of the culprit in the great Messhall Mystery 
of Youngster Year— The Case of Sidney's Sword. Second 
Class Cruise, by dint of his Scot ancestry, Mac made the 
trek to Kirkcudbright, Scotland, for the John Paul Jones 
Bicentennial Celebration. Dabbling in everything from 
Public Relations to social strategy, and blessed with a 
gracious, affable temperament flavored with sincerity, 
he could find his friends in every section of Bancroft. 
His winters were spent contributing to the championship 
record of Navy's pistol team— indeed, in the years to 
come, Mac will be remembered as a straight shooter, 
on or off the range.

William £. Kvad 

LA GRANGE, ILLINOIS 

In our world where seconds count, the "Rock," as he 
was known from battalion football, found time his great 
battle. It was always a rush from reveille to taps, and 
sometimes after taps. Getting to know Bill, we soon 
learned that here was plenty of the real stuff. We 
found out that he expressed his ideas clearly and forci- 
bly, and pitied those who argued with this "facts and 
figures" man. Bill turned in as non-reg a Plebe Year 
as possible, and his ability at outcracking the first class 
wits kept him constantly on the move at release. 
Throughout, however, he demonstrated that sense of 
humor and amiability for which we will always remem- 
ber him. Bill is looking toward Naval Aviation— he will 
undoubtedly be a hot pilot, and few will know more 
about their planes than Bill. 



READING, PENNSYLVANIA 

Potty, hailing from the land of the well known Pennsyl- 
vania Dutch, was known throughout the brigade as 
"Superpot the Cyclone Kid." A common occupational 
hazard of midshipmen was low moral and general dis- 
satisfaction with life at Naval Tech, but when Potty 
walked into the room, the evil spirits were driven out 
by his sparkling humor. A resident of Reading, the 
pretzel city, his room was the headquarters for all 
lovers of the twisted morsel. His major pastime was the 
broadcasting of numerous Naval athletic events as a 
member of the Public Relations Detail. Potty did not 
build a better mouse trap, but the better part of his 
company beat a path to his door for the Dago home- 
work. His future ambitions are directed toward either 
submarines or the Air Corps. 



NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Ruby's three years of engineering at Alfred University 
and his time in the Navy taught him how to slide over 
the rough spots of the Academic and Executive Depart- 
ments with a minimum of friction. With studies usually 
getting the last call on his time, he spent Plebe and 
Youngster Years on the sabre team, while the LOG and 
company sports shared the honors upper class years. 
Although he rarely wasted precious weekend time on 
dragging, Ruby's ability and potentialities as a ladies' 
man came to the fore on cruise with considerable suc- 
cess. His attitude and ability have stamped him as a 
fine officer and a good man. Although he'd prefer a 
berth under the shadow of his native Washington 
Heights, he will do his job well anywhere and on any- 
thing.

SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA 

Attending Washington High School in his hometown, Lee 
lettered in basketball, track, and football, holding upon 
graduation the scoring record for the state basketball 
tournament and a conference record in track. High 
school was followed by one year of V-5 at Northwestern 
Missouri State Teachers College, another basketball 
letter, and the nickname "Grigsberger." Entering the 
Academy on a senatorial appointment, sports were Lee's 
interest, primarily baseball and basketball, N* in the 
latter. Lee, being by nature easy going, had a lust for 
not hurrying and not straining, these two traits caused 
him to cross swords with the Executive Department on 
more than one occasion. The encounters, however, left 
him unscathed. 



BAY CITY, MICHIGAN 

Jim was an embryo electrical engineer in the Iowa State 
V-12 unit before he changed course to Navy. During 
his literary search, he did the unprecedented and be- 
came a temporary "St. Johnnie" during his free time, 
thus becoming prominent in after-dinner speaking. He 
put his talent to its best use in the Quarterdeck Society. 
The intricacies of Slavic languages appealed to Bruce, so 
he took a special course in Russian during his last two 
years here. Jim played company soccer; many a squad 
depended on him to bring home the bacon. Bruce 
dragged intermittently; such episodes fluctuated with 
his feeling towards the system at the time. His principle 
of variety in femmes led Jim to claim the distinction of 
meeting a weekend date at the B&A only to find that 
there was a chaperone attached.

KENNET SQUARE, PENNSYLVANIA 

The words "That name is Roo-jerry, sir!" form our earliest 
recollections of Arch from Plebe Summer. There have 
been many others, though; his four year war with the 
academics, his athletic prowess, and, most important, 
the four years of friendship we have enjoyed. His big 
battle here was academics, but he slugged it out and 
emerged victorious. Contrary to academics, athletics 
were strictly smooth sailing for Arch. Coming to Navy 
with a golden trail of awards for prowess behind him, 
he topped them all, first by winning three N's for 
soccer, and second, by being named to the Ail-Ameri- 
can team. Graduation must certainly have more sig- 
nificance for Arch than for many of us, for it meant that 
he was now free to bid goodby to bachelorhood. To 
both him and Lou we wish many a shipload of happiness.

The windy city was well represented at the Academy 
by our tall, suave, good-looking Frank. Although he 
applied himself diligently to the rigors of Navy, he never 
let academics interfere with his enjoyment of the finer 
things. The girls found his charm irresistible, and not 
being one to waste a weekend, he developed a long 
list of queens in his little black book. An active partici- 
pant in many sports, he expended most of his energy 
grunting and groaning in the wrestling loft. Frank gave 
up his chance to become a Navy flier to come to the 
Academy and looks forward to earning his wings after 
graduation. His fun-loving disposition and sharp wit 
have made him an entertaining companion for our four 
years here, and will make him a fine addition to the

William €1. Plutledaa 

CONWAY, SOUTH CAROLINA 

Bill was valedictorian of his class at Conway High and 
so had little trouble with the books. He was also a 
member of the National Honor Society, editor of the 
school paper, and he won his "C" in basketball. As a 
pre-med student for a year and a half at VMI, he was 
active on the campus and received the Jarman award 
for being the outstanding fourth classman. At the 
Academy he was very active in intramural sports, but, 
if asked, he would say that he was heart and soul with 
the radiator squad. Bill was a camera fan and enjoyed 
taking pictures of his friends. His collection of snaps 
will be a fine record of his four years by the Severn. 
Bill did pretty well socially; he had been playing the 
field but hoped to make a certain Southern belle his 
OAO.

From Massachusetts, Merwin came to Navy wearing a 
smile and using a slight New England accent. In high 
school, Sac, though the youngest in his class, made a 
scholastic record that was admired by all. He tried to 
enter Naval Aviation but was turned down because of 
his age. Instead he went to Rensselaer Polytechnic In- 
stitute for one term, during which time he received his 
appointment to the Academy. During Plebe Summer, he 
became disillusioned by the Navy, but the determina- 
tion to make a success of anything he does kept him 
here. He was still a top scholar, putting forth a minimum 
of effort for good grades. Though not the varsity athletic 
type, Sac still had enough fight to try out for plebe 
sports against the toughest of competition.

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

Navy Vol's record here was merely an extension of the 
outstanding one he had amassed before his arrival. 
Though a man of many interests, his forte was athletics. 
Outstanding in basketball, track, and swimming in high 
school, he had won All-California honors in football as 
well. Continuing his activities on the Navy football 
varsity, he also participated in swimming and tennis. 
Reveille here seldom affected him, and the sight of his 
one hundred eighty-five pound form staggering down 
the corridor early in the morning is one we can't forget. 
When not engaged in some form of athletics, Val was 
usually off in a darkroom fiddling with an enlarger or 
dreaming about his future in the air where he intends 
to follow his Navy Dad's footsteps. Stand by, Navy, 
for another hot pilot! 




Carl ( M. Sehenius 9 ( Jw, 

ALTADENA, CALIFORNIA 

Zeke was as covered with salt as an ice cream freezer, 
for, during the two years before he came to the Acad- 
emy, he saw sea duty in both the Atlantic and Pacific 
fleets as a Fireman 1/c (EM). Since his fleet days he has 
distinguished himself by an amazing capacity for hard 
work and an earnest desire for success. In plebe track, 
and innumerable company sports, he proved outstand- 
ing both in skill and enthusiasm. Zeke was one of the 
many Forty-Niners who gladly exchange one set of bells 
for another, wedding bells, upon graduation. A large 
measure of Zek's achievement at the Academy could be 
credited directly to his rare combination of good sense 
and good humor. Diligence and an excellent faculty 
for leadership will make him one of the Navy's most 
valued officers.

Anyone taking a close look at Tecumseh's proboscis

Blue and Gold in "Chief" than Tecumseh will ever wear. 
In any bull session, in which the inevitable comparisons 
come up between Navy Tech and nice civilian colleges, 
it was always "Chief" who defended Navy's honor 
against all odds and all comers. He worked on his 
academics like he played bridge— few flashes of bril- 
liance, but a deep, steady show of perseverance. Al- 
though not considered much of an "operator" when it 
came to women, he still held his own with a quiet 
manner and six-foot stature of sex appeal.

William III. Shannons** 

ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS 

Despite efforts to suppress it, Bill will always be "the 
Wilb" to the boys. In many ways, he has been slightly 
phenomenal. How relaxed could one get? To what ex- 
tent could one beat the system? Bill's successes over 
the system indicated real ability in more serious fields. 
As a yachtsman, he was among the first in the class 
to qualify for yawl command, was selected to crew 
the Vamarie in the Bermuda race of 1946, and won 
the Cove Point yawl race Second Class Year hands 
down. Bill's trophies are evidence of his achievements. 
The harsh blows he dealt academics cannot be over- 
looked, for they made his passage through these rough 
waters smooth sailing. Bill eagerly awaited gradua- 
tion, for he and his girl Suds, well known to us all, were 
as anxious to embark on married life as two people 
can be. 



/oiiif ( fff. Swrille 

BRONX, NEW YORK 

Philosopher, artist, critic of both jazz and the classics, 
Lou was a connoisseur of all things aesthetic. He passed 
the years before entering the Academy in CCNY and 
the Navy. His literary ability, which had earned him 
the editorship of his high school yearbook, was well 
known to all here through his cartoons and sketches in 
the LOG. During the winter, he abandoned his copies 
of Variety, Downbeat, and the New Yorker for the epee 
and the fencing loft. His winning personality made him 
the perfect blind date, a fact that he regretted many 
times. But with true Serrille fatalism, he regarded that, 
too, as part of the system. Not a believer in long range 
plans, Lou placed his future Naval career in the hands 
of Kismet, although a berth as close as possible to the 
Bronx River would be preferred. 



§Hthard Wi. §4sih 

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND 

John Hopkins really lost a favorite son when Dick left 
the Phi Gamm house to join the "country club" set. He 
really took a mean strain on each physical to stretch 
through with his five foot six longitudinal axis, but that 
same axis spelled doom to those who would put the ball 
through a lacrosse goal when Dick was in the net. For 
four years the "Stopper" proved that he was one of 
the best goalies in the business. With no academic 
worries, he found his only trouble in life was his constant 
inability to keep one girl from finding out when he 
was dragging her best friend. In the future we will 
remember that wine, women, song, and food put an 
identifying mark on Dick— wine and women to start the 
evening off, song to give atmosphere and food to end 
it well.

{Rodric fit. Sinqleton 9 Js\ 

OPELOUSAS, LOUISIANA 

Vaudeville missed one of its best chances to make a 
comeback when it permitted Singy to enter Admiral 
Holloway's School for Midshipmen. Although his ability 
with a clarinet has never been doubted since the time 
he first appeared with the NA-10, even broadway pro- 
ducers must have admitted that his proficiency with 
a slide rule was even more remarkable. Few other men 
succeeded in getting first degree burns from the heat 
generated by their slipsticks during juice quizzes. But 
Bon-Bon never let his academics worry him— he didn't 
need to. Consequently, he always had time on week- 
ends to date Baltimore's fairest. His drag was invari- 
ably treated to some of the best imitations, juggling, 
gymnastics, and general devil-raising seen in twenty 
years. 



t§v<»€ii»vne ( W)~ Smith 

PORTLAND, OREGON 

Although he swore that he was from South Weymouth, 
Mass. and from Portland, Oregon, Fritz's habits and 
tastes were those of a blue-blooded New Englander. 
After Deerfield Academy, Tufts College and one year 
in V-12, he commenced his Plebe Summer. He ran 
cross-country and track like his brother, Jim, and added 
wrestling for good measure. Such duties as Business 
Manager of the TRIDENT, sports staff of the LOG, 
Russian Club, and Boat Club memberships partially filled 
his days. Why partially? Well, during Second Class 
Year, Fritz took a correspondence course in Business 
Administration. On weekends, he could be found sail- 
ing in the yawl races with one of his many beautiful 
drags. 






Paul £. Smith 

WHEATON, ILLINOIS 

Before his four year stay at USNA Paul enlisted in the 
Navy V-5 program and took up pre-flight studies for 
a year at the University of Michigan. Here at Navy Tech 
Paul devoted his spare time to music, boxing, and rifle 
fire. He tooted the oboe for the band and the orchestra, 
boxed in company and batt competition, and also won 
class numerals as a member of the rifle team. Pre- 
dominately Smitty was serious and diligent, quietly striv- 
ing to obtain his goal. He was no slacker, for he had 
a hometown OAO to whom he was contemplating mar- 
riage soon after graduation. When Smitty went on his 
summer leave he usually wandered north across the 
Canadian border to a tract of land he owned where he 
engaged in the sport of hunting.

Walter D. Stapfeton 

AKRON, NEW YORK 

About a girl he met on youngster leave Stape said, 
"That's the one I'm going to marry." We had all heard 
stories like that before, but in spite of our joshing he 
settled down to the writing and waiting routine that 
characterized a man who had found what he wanted. 
All we could get out of him from that day forth was 
praise for the Irish and "My Sweet Patty O'Brien." He 
found writing letters to his girl and not dragging more 
profitable than application to his studies, but while he 
never stood high in his class he always managed to 
get by — a fact indicative of his ability to concentrate 
and put away the knowledge when the chips were 
down. He was a big, red-haired Irishman whose affable 
manner will be hard to forget. 



£>uuen& O. Sp&ekari 

SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI 

The home of the "blues" certainly reared a paradoxical 
son, for Speck was consistently on hand to buoy up our 
oscillating spirits for the long years. Two years at 
Washington University as a chemistry major, followed 
by more than a year's service in the Infantry gave him 
a background of experience beneficial in any walk of 
life. Although interested in sports in general, his great 
weakness was baseball, for, as well as being a fount 
of information on the subject, he was a regular on the 
Academy nine as a slugging outfielder for three years. 
In the fall, batt football benefitted by his efforts at one 
of the terminal posts. Dragging moderately and living 
likewise, Speck will have little trouble adapting him- 
self in the fleet. 



^fdix: S. Spidwnann 

HUMBOLDT, SOUTH DAKOTA 

Though raised as close to the soil as any farmer can 
get, the "Sea Dog" early set out for the salt water, 
and, with twenty-one months of service in Atlantic, Medi- 
terranean, and Arctic waters, plus his "Bluenose certifi- 
cate," has earned his nickname. He was so intrigued 
then with the life afloat that he gave up thoughts of 
tilling the soil, and set his sights on the Chapel Dome 
instead. Here, for four long years, he has succeeded 
academically and athletically with his conscientious ap- 
plication, and socially with his friendly enthusiasm and 
truly amazing faculty for extravagant narration. Four 
years and many sea stories later, the Sea Dog is now 
ready to return to his element again. With him go our 
best wishes for a happy and successful career.

Qowdim €}. Stewart 

PEORIA, ILLINOIS 

From Bradley College in Peoria, Stu came to the Naval 
Academy. A thorough student, he surmounted the 
academic obstacles and achieved a good all around 
average. In his effort to learn Russian, he joined the 
Russian Club, working to learn how to "talk to the 
Soviets." With his backlog of high school track, he 
naturally found a place in the running competition of 
the cross-country, and steeplechase squads. On cruise 
he alternated between hitting the sack and visiting 
places of interest in port. Not uncertain of himself, and 
containing an inert liking for the Naval service, Stu will 
probably be under Uncle Sam's supervision and direc- 
tion for a good many years. His easy, unassuming 
manner and quiet resolve should aid him considerably 
in his work. 



John ( ¥f- Sullivan 

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA 

Sully will always be remembered for his outstanding 
ability to make and keep friends, for his circle of friends 
was only limited to those who knew him. He was one 
who never failed to rise above the situation and shatter 
a dark storm cloud with a shaft of Irish humor. The 
charm of sack and book proved almost irresistible to 
John, and it took considerable work to arouse him, al- 
though, once broken out, he proved a first-class athlete, 
distinguishing himself in batt and company football, 
baseball, and track. His greatest fame came when, 
Lucky Strikes permitting, he ran the four-forty for the 
mighty third. For the future, we are confident of John's 
success, and can only envy those who will be with him 
in future years to hear him sing again "I'll Take You 
Home Again, Kathleen." 






§ii€hard U). Baylor 

TOLEDO, OHIO 

The man with the pleasant smile and pleasing person- 
ality was our Dick. After high school, where he had 
been president of his class and his fraternity, as well 
as business manager of the yearbook, he spent three 
terms at college in the Navy before coming to the 
Academy. Besides doing well in academics, Dick has 
been an all-around man here— an excellent boxer and 
skiier, Advertising Manager of the LUCKY BAG, and an 
interested Spanish student. After his OAO, his chief 
love in life was sailing, and any free time he had in- 
evitably found him out in one of the yawls, rain or 
shine. Dick is definitely a career man, and so far it's a 
toss up as to whether the Marine Corps or Navy Avia- 
tion will be the lucky branch to get his attention.

Jaeh D. Venable 

LAS VERGAS, NEVADA 

"Black Jack" has spliced the old Navy line to the old 
western line with the eye of a master mariner. From 
the shadow of the Great Divide he followed the Navy 
trail until it narrowed to a footpath headed for the 
Academy— so it was that our young Lochinvar rode out 
of the West to join the ranks of '49. Ever since Black 
Jack hitched his chuck wagon to the midshipmen's 
mess, he has showed versatility of achievement, and 
even difficulties with academics didn't keep him from ex- 
celling in athletics. His seemingly endless repetoire of 
tall stories never went unappreciated, and with his even- 
tempered congeniality, won him a host of friends. From 
the fleet, he hopes to go to the pigboats; they will have 
gained as excellent an officer as the West has lost a 
wrangler. 



C/foiitat Ul Cf/f, Jr. 

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

When Tom came up north to go to school on the Severn, 
he brought with him a game of tennis that had been 
developing since high school, a year's experience at 
Georgia Tech in textile engineering, a Phi Delta Theta 
pin from the same place, and a quiet and easy-going 
approach. An athlete of no mean repute, he played 
varsity tennis, varsity squash, ran cross country for the 
company, and was a star on the company gym team. 
As well as all this, he was an enthusiastic sailor, as was 
evidenced by the many hours he spent on the yawls. 
Naturally, he dragged only southern belles, preferably 
those who were from Atlanta and were in school in 
Washington. Tom looks forward to a career in Naval 
Aviation, where he will certainly do well. 



GRIFFIN, GEORGIA 

Throughout Plebe Year, Ken ran the usual gauntlet of 
questions, stunts, and "coming around," and complied 
with all the upper class demands save one— that he 
sing "Marching Through Georgia." Though reared in 
the lazy southern climate, he showed no slowness in his 
running; Plebe Year he worked with the company cross- 
country and steeplechase squads, and by the year's end 
he had graduated to the varsity track and cross-country 
squads with the nickname "Fleetwings." Aside from the 
usual midshipman interests of bull sessions, letters, and 
dragging, Ken spent many free moments assimilating the 
culture and ways of both the United States and many 
foreign countries. This interest, coupled with his indi- 
vidualism and willingness to serve, will make him a 
worthy addition to the Fleet.

[Philip Dlad€>**a 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

A proud member of the Academy's vast delegation from 
Brooklyn, Philip entered the Naval Service with an 
amazing knowledge of the Slavic languages. Not con- 
tent with sack duty, Phil excelled each season in batt 
football, swimming, and lacrosse, spending the time left 
in the Russian and Photo Clubs. No day was complete 
without some manifestation of his capricious wit, and, 
although the system received its share of his barbs, the 
Navy was Phil's most serious subject. A regulation man, 
he usually was harder on himself than on others. Two 
years of the Navy, part of the time at the New London 
Sub School, gave Phil a taste of undersea life that he 
enjoyed. The Navy's going to have a good man for 
the next forty years, and the sooner it gives Phil his 
dolphins, the better off it's going to be.

MOUNTAIN LAKE, MINNESOTA 

In his secondary school career, Spud won letters in foot- 
ball, basketball, and track. This promising past, coupled 
with an impressive stature and an enviable ability to 
learn quickly, indicated a bright future on the Navy 
playing fields. Fulfilling this future, Spud found posi- 
tions with plebe football, basketball, and lacrosse— a 
shoulder injury stopped the football, but, by devoting 
himself to lacrosse, Spud made himself one of the key 
men on the team. As a Radio Technician in the Fleet, 
before Navy, he discovered a field in which his interest 
was to be endless, and as a member, and, First Class 
Year, president, of the Radio Club, he extended both his 
interest and his skill. His future success cannot be but 
assured.

MANCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS 

Tony arrived at Navy with as proud a heritage of fight- 
in' forbears as his name was long. With a couple of 
Marine generals and an Admiral for grandfather, uncle, 
and father, respectively, Tony made it clear that, al- 
though he might not star in every course, he was going 
to do some fightin' on his own— with the books. While 
a youngster, he joined the ranks of the championship 
150-pound football team, and, characteristically, wound 
up with an N at the close of each remaining season. 
In distinct contrast to the "cauld wintry blasts" that play 
along his native state's shores, Tony could usually be 
found cheerfully making it hot for the gang with some 
new merriment. In the years to some, we shall certainly 
look forward with pleasant anticipation to catch once 
again the twinkle of this gentleman's eye.

MARSHALL, MINNESOTA 

Hailing from the wilds of one of Minnesota's innermost 
dairy farms, Bob stood firmly upon his record of having 
amassed more motherly instincts than any other man to 
ever enter Navy Tech. Endowed with a naturally care- 
free disposition, it required almost two years of con- 
stant tutoring to teach him the rudiments of a good 
healthy gripe, and even yet his naturally effervescent 
nature insisted upon placing rainbows in the midst of 
the blackest skies. A member of the Academy choir, as 
well as the Glee Club, much of his extra time was spent 
in rehearsal, the remainder being conscientiously de- 
voted to the radiator squad. Although he was never 
one to wear out a perfectly good book, his number still 
managed to retain a remarkable lack of magnitude. 



John M Wamstey 

BUFFALO, NEW YORK 

Whether the J.A's high academic standing was due to 
the fact that he had had most of the courses in the 
NROTC at the Universities of Notre Dame and Rochester, 
or whether it was by reason of natural ability with the 
slip-stick was a question never actually answered. Never 
a one-girl man, Jack was always willing to meet a new 
one— wherever he went he usually came back with a 
new address, and, after two foreign cruises, he prob- 
ably wrote to more girls in more countries than any 
other man. The "Red Eye" gained his nickname from his 
profuse use of that condiment— a habit he picked up 
aboard the USS North Carolina of Youngster Cruise. 
Jack was always good solid material for the company 
and battalion sports squads, but he liked chess the best. 



James 38. Way, Jr. 

INDIANA, PENNSYLVANIA 

At high school, Jim was class president, member of the 
student council, the school paper and yearbook staffs, 
and was awarded a State Senatorial Scholarship in 
Composition, under which he studied in the school of 
liberal arts at the University of Pittsburgh for a year 
and was elected into Phi Eta Sigma, the freshman hon- 
orary fraternity. Here, on the plebe dragging weekend, 
his trusty wife fixed him up with a blind drag— after that 
unfortunate experience, he remained a confirmed Red 
Mike until the spring of Second Class year. His inter- 
ests included music, but his real delight was Spanish 
and he went far in that language. He played on the 
company cross country and soccer teams, and won his 
numerals in plebe fencing, but the best remembered 
days were spent splashing with the sub squad.

Kaiph D. Uhillivi 

HIGHLAND PARK, MICHIGAN 

One year in the Fleet and service at Morgan Park Mili- 
tary Academy gave Whit a good background for life 
here at Navy. Stubbornly realistic in every way, he was a 
good man to have on your side in any argument. Whit 
was a perfectionist at heart, and thoroughness in every- 
thing he did was his best asset. During his first two 
years here, he managed to attend most of the hops and 
his taste in women was good, although varied. Towards 
the end of Youngster Year, however, his Woman De- 
partment suddenly narrowed down to "The One." By 
Second Class Year he was busy collecting silverware 
patterns. Swimming and water polo took up some of 
Whit's spare time, but varsity pistol proved to be his 
forte— as four N's could testify.

MIAMI, FLORIDA 

Pete came to us directly from high school, where he had 
won, in addition to seven athletic letters and numerous 
awards, the honor of being the outstanding graduate 
in his class. He brought with him his nickname, and as 
"Pistol Pete," he has been the star halfback for the 
football team for four years, as well as being an out- 
standing track runner. In high school he met his OAO, to- 
gether with whom he has been looking forward for three 
years to graduation and marriage. Among his spare- 
time interests, golf and reading headed the list. As our 
class president, he has been an able and capable leader 
who has represented us well. Only one of the many 
honors he has received was that of being included in 
"Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities" in 
his Second Class Year.

PORTSMOUTH, OHIO 

From a destroyer on Atlantic duty. Smiley went to NAPS 
at Bainbridge to study for the competitive fleet examina- 
tions. Plebe Year was tough for the independent 
Ohioan, whose backlog of Naval experience did not 
include the rigors of such a life; but through it all his 
ready smile and cheery outlook predominated, and the 
appropriate nickname of "Smiley" followed. In com- 
pany and battalion sports, Smiley earned a place for 
himself on the football, Softball, fieldball, and pushball 
teams. Definitely the explorer type, he usually escorted 
a different girl each month. In the fleet his decided 
interest in our country's welfare, his previous Naval ser- 
vice, and his Naval Academy education should make 
him a good officer, capable of fulfilling any assignment.

PACIFIC PALISADES, CALIFORNIA 

Although Duff came to us by way of Ohio Wesleyan, 
where he was in V-12 and a member of Beta Theta Pi, 
he's down in the records as a Californian. He's not the 
ordinary variety of Golden-Stater, either, for he admits 
that there is another state worth living in— Iowa, where 
he was born. Life was pretty dull at Navy that first 
year, even though he managed to while away the time 
with lacrosse, batt boxing, and plebe gym. The main 
trouble was that D.C. couldn't drag, and that goes hard 
with one who's always been a dragging man. Duff 
found plenty of use for that winning personality on the 
Public Relations Committee and in the everyday life of 
Bancroft. Tact, unselfishness, and a desire to help out 
were the traits that made him a welcome addition to 
any group. 



ffiarhtey T. U>ood 9 Jr. 

BIG SPRING, TEXAS 

In high school Barkley was active in football, tennis, the 
Spanish Club, the National Honor Society, and as Presi- 
dent of the Student Council. After high school, "Pooley," 
as he was nicknamed, left Texas to attend New Mexico 
for nine months under the Army Specialized Training 
Reserve Program. Barkley entered the Academy by cer- 
tificate on a congressional appointment. While at the 
Academy he pursued his love of football, and did well 
playing plebe, varsity and company football. Pooley 
was a peaceful man, but he wanted it understood that 
he had become a fully naturalized Texan. As for social 
life he was a strong believer in a full schedule and 
claimed to just play the field in the case of women. 
His other interests were fishing, football and other sports, 
and Texas. 



William £. Wynne 

PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY 

When the cries "Beat Army" had died down, you could 
always find a red faced, Irishman present. Bill found 
his team and became a part of it in every way, when he 
entered the Academy. Always active in sports, whether 
playing jayvee football, soccer, or baseball, and back- 
ing the varsity with a fervour seldom seen, Bill was "in 
there" at all times. His accomplishments were not 
limited to the athletic field— he stood high in academics 
and never hesitated to give a laughing nod when the 
question to drag or not to drag arose. When the neces- 
sity for choosing a leader appeared, the name Wynne 
stood at the top. Always smiling, imparting his confi- 
dence and good naturedness to those about him, Bill 
needed little molding to emerge an asset to the Navy. 




192 



LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

Before Navy, Randy spent two years in the Pacific on 
a DD, getting a FC 2/c rate, and a fleet appointment 
to NA. Four months at NAPS compensated for his lack 
of high school diploma, which he had foregone to enter 
the Navy, and he passed the Fleet Exams with the 
highest average in the regular fleet quota. Plebe Year 
was tough for him after his enlisted status, but the best 
compensations were sports, so he started off with plebe 
soccer and fencing, continuing by playing with the 
varsities in these sports the last three years. His interest 
in diplomacy led him to join the Russian Club, where he 
worked on the study of U. S.-Soviet relations. Although 
Navy Fire control and the work of a Naval attache 
may constitute most of his career, Randy will be a 
welcome asset to any ship's complement. 



Chartes John 3C&kan 

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA 

Easily adaptable to the Navy way of life, Zeke early 
demonstrated qualities of leadership. In boot camp, 
where his officers recommended him for a Fleet Reserve 
Appointment to the Academy by prepping in NAPS, he 
successfully competed for a place with the Brigade. An 
alert and conscientious student, he quickly adjusted him- 
self to Navy academics and earned not only high aver- 
ages, but also his classmates' respect for his ability. 
During the sports seasons, he engaged in company 
athletics; and as for dragging, he did not miss many of 
the hops. Out in the Fleet Zeke will fulfill his function 
as a capable mariner and a good officer. Ashore, his 
cordial nature and active interest in Naval affairs will 
make him a desirable working companion.

SIDNEY, OHIO 

Hugh's three semesters at Ohio Wesleyan University, 
coupled with his keen mind, took care of academic 
worries, and left much energy and time to be devoted 
to extra-curricular activities. His guiding hand and un- 
tiring efforts on behalf of the LOG were rewarded with 
the post of co-editor First Class Year. With Hugh, the 
adage "if you want a job done well, give it to a busy 
man" fitted like a glove. A true lover of white sails and 
sleek hulls, he took every opportunity to sail the bay, 
and soon became as expert with the tiller as with the 
pen. If further indication of his versatility is necessary, 
Hugh was very much at home with the Concert Band 
and Orchestra. In every task confronting him, Hugh 
has proved to be an excellent example of thorough- 
ness, reliability, and leadership.

"New York has everything" Norm told us, forgetting 
what lured him away from a jounrnalistic career in the 
big city. Editing his school newspaper and winning 
essay awards, Norm was caught up in a sea breeze 
that blew in over the skyscrapers and delivered him to 
our door in bell bottoms. If you wanted to see him in 
action, you'd have to be quick. He might be out playing 
volleyball, softball, touch football, tennis, or cross coun- 
try; he might be writing sports for the LOG or working 
for the TRIDENT; he might be in his room lecturing his 
wife on music appreciation. The rest of the time he 
would faithfully be with the little girl who has already 
put her brand on him. Failing vision may turn Norm 
to new fields— wherever he goes, he'll be at the top.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

Mac began life in Shanghai, China, in 1927, and after 
the extensive travelling that is the lot of the Navy 
junior, he finally chose Atlanta as his home. While 
there, he attended Georgia Tech for one year, where 
he tasted the joys of college life under the auspices of 
Sigma Nu. Since entering the Academy, Mac has par- 
ticipated in numerous and varied company and bat- 
talion sports, but his great love has been sailing. He 
waited anxiously for the dawn of Second Class Year 
so that he might once more indulge in his hobby of 
record collecting. The greatest misfortune in his life 
has been the realization that he will soon be without 
those flowing golden locks. Regardless of all precau- 
tions and efforts to the contrary that hairline recedes 
inexorably!

football, basketball, and track, while presiding over the 
student council and his class. He continued his winning 
ways at Northwestern and Iowa, winning three more 
letters in baseball and basketball, and joining SAE and 
Phi Eta Sigma. Although his big love was Vaughn 
Monroe, he was rough and tough, too, being the only 
man ever to hit the B&A head-on and walk away— four 
weeks later. We'll remember Andy for his quiet, un- 
assuming, and gentlemanly mein, for his precise think- 
ing, for his sportsmanship, and for his responsive "all 
right, then" when approving of class policy, steam solu- 
tion, or his wife's drag. His ready smile was matched 
by his generous heart and enjoyed by scores of friends.

SILVER SPRING, MARYLAND 

We recognized Dick as one to maintain a healthy cyni- 
cism about world events, deflating overemphasized is- 
sues while probing for hidden truths in those sloughed 
over. But "Tiger" was not an armchair philosopher; 
rather, he reflected his alias by viciously pursuing the 
sport at hand, whether it was with a tennis racquet, 
a number six iron, or the megaphone of a varsity shell 
cox'n. In addition, dragging weekends usually found 
him explaining the difference between straight and 
diagonal stripes to some sweet young thing. After at- 
tending Calvin Coolidge High, Dick spent a year at 
Bullis Prep before exchanging his wide selection of bow 
ties for the uniform selection of starched collars of a 
midshipman. A line man now, he takes his good fellow- 
ship and discriminating taste to wardrooms to come.

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND 

Navy Bob attended high school in Newport, Rhode 
Island before coming to the Academy, but his family 
moved to Crabtown at the beginning of his Youngster 
Year so he felt right at home here at the Academy. 
Academics were not his bosom buddies, but Bob took 
them in his stride, although he had to shorten it several 
times. Robert's physical exertions were confined to batt 
and company sports, where he could always be counted 
on for needed points. A Navy booster from way back, 
Navy Bob was usually able to persuade us to find the 
silver lining when things seemed to be getting the better 
of us. Thus with a Navy brace and a Navy education. 
Bob put out to sea.

{Raymond Ml ixwt 

EL PASO, TEXAS 

Ray spent thirty-two months in the regular Navy as a 
TM 1/c on a torpedo boat off New Guinea before re- 
nouncing the world and entering the Naval convent at 
Annapolis. The Judge was probably one of the hardest 
working men at the Academy, and was a consistent star 
with the "Good morning gentlemen, man the boards" 
group in the Academic Departments. "Red Mike Ray" 
spent his non-working time playing handball, fieldball, 
bridge, and a rather complicated 14th company game 
known as "Craig-Larson G.A." Naval aviation was his 
main ambition, and he has already passed the unofficial 
flight aptitude test— he looked dapper in Ray-Bans, 
white scarf, and seaboots. If determination, hard work, 
and ability to get along with people will do it, Judge 
is a cinch for five stars. 



FAYETTEVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA 

Pennsylvania lost a good apple knocker in '43 when 
George left home to enter Brown University under the 
V-12 program. Prior to this he was a student at Mercers- 
burg Academy. After several months at Brown, George 
and the Navy decided that he would make a good 
seaman, so off to boot camp he went. From there 
George went to NAPS and three months' duty on the 
"Dirty D", patrolling the Chesapeake. On the second 
try he came through, and, ignoring a few minor mis- 
haps, made good. But, deep down, the call of the wild 
still echoes in George's soul, and we're making book 
that he'H have a Grime's Golden Delicious apple tree 
branching out of the ports of his PG as he patrols 
the upper reaches of the Yangzte. 



John C. ffiamow 

NEW BLOOMFIELD, MISSOURI 

The athletic ability of the "Wheel" is well known to 
anyone who has followed the recent Naval Academy 
sports, for he has been the mainstay of the basket- 
ball and track teams during the past four years. Aca- 
demics proved to be not much more mystery to John 
than the fine points of handling a basketball or a 
vaulting pole, as his fine academic record will attest. 
One of the Brigade's outstanding leaders, his sincere 
friendliness and fine sense of fair play earned him 
innumerable friends as well as the vice-presidency of 
his class. John met the light of his life at the end of 
Youngster Cruise and hopes to settle down to married 
life before continuing the career in Naval Aviation that 
he began before entering the Academy.

UTICA, NEW YORK 

For his four years here at the Naval Academy, and a 
little before, number one on his hit parade has been 
"Marie." Not only will graduation be, as George terms 
it, "an exit to freedom," but also an entrance to a 
long and happy matrimonial life. George entered the 
N. A. after spending two years as an enlisted man in 
the Navy. Here at the Academy, between sojourns on 
the excused and radiator squads, George devoted most 
of his spare time to boxing and the Radio Club. He was 
also interested in rockets, and has the distinction of 
being the only midshipman member of the United States 
Rocket Society. George has big and good ideas for his 
future, and his friendliness and warm personality will 
without a doubt spell success.

MATTOON, ILLINOIS 

Ted graduated from high school as president of his 
class, with letters in football, basketball, and track, as 
well as the honor of having been elected "Mr. Mattoon 
High School" by the feminine vote. Even Navy couldn't 
subdue Ted's fascination for the opposite sex, a fact 
that weary mail-carrying mates would readily uphold. 
Here our ex-radio tech man was active in the Musical 
Clubs, playing for the Concert Band, and singing for 
the Glee Club and Choir. On the Navy athletic fields, 
he applied his sporting nature to its best advantage, 
winning squad letters as JV center on the football team, 
and playing company volleyball and touch football. 
Ted definitely is giving something to the Navy in his 
ability and eagerness to do the job and do it well. 



William <W. ffiennett 

RENO, NEVADA 

A native of Reno, "the biggest little city in the world," 
Henry was an electrical engineering major and member 
of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at the University of 
Nevada before coming to the "trade school." Here at 
the Academy, he used his electrical engineering back- 
ground to ease the burden of AC-DC Juice and help 
less fortunate classmates, as well as to further his hobby, 
radio. He also took great interest in the activities of 
the Mechanical Engineering Club and photography. 
At present contemplating the F.B.I, as a career, Bill 
has a dependability that will stand him in good stead. 
Out of the many jokes at the expense of his very 
blonde hair and failing eyesight have grown a host of 
firm friendships that will endure even through baldness 
and the addition of a seeing-eye dog.

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA 

When those little white leave cards were issued, one 
could always find Jeff hurrying happily homeward— 
usually via a roundabout route to include all the young 
ladies whom he classified as only casual acquaintances. 
Jeff was quite proud of his home state and was always 
ready to expound the exploits of the University's Golden 
Gophers. He should know, too, because he performed 
quite creditably for three years on an undefeated Navy 
150-pound football team. Fully realizing that fun and 
pleasure are of equal importance with work and study, 
Jeff could usually be enticed away from his books for a 
little card game or a workout in the gym. He leaves 
behind many friends after four years of association.

DENVER, COLORADO 

Denver gave to Colorado College and later to us at 
the Academy, in Tom, a conscientious and straightfor- 
ward fellow in every respect. Whether it was picking 
up a drag after a Baltimore football game or handling 
lines on youngster cruise, Tom put his whole heart and 
soul into the effort. His biggest disappointment in com- 
ing to Navy was probably Maryland's lack of long, 
steep hills and four feet of snow in the winter, for he 
was a proficient skier and a great winter sports en- 
thusiast. Athletics of almost every kind, shining shoes, 
scat-singing, and bemoaning the shortcomings of the 
female sex were Tom's main interests apart from the 
academic field. His highly polished bugle gleaming in 
the front rank of the Drum and Bugle Corps was testi- 
mony of his pride in the Corps.

YUKON, PENNSYLVANIA 

After high school, where he had been president of the 
student council and had earned basketball and football 
letters. Walt took engineering at Pittsburgh for a year, 
again playing football, and then enlisted in the Navy, 
whence he arrived at the Academy with the early- 
comers Plebe Summer. To add to his fame, he distin- 
guished himself as a boxer, and as one who understood 
the finer points of the sport. Between the heavy bag 
and shadow boxing, he found time to develop a keen 
interest in photography, and was an active member of 
the Photo Club as well as the Newman and Foreign 
Language Clubs. His chief interests, other than girls, 
were records, dancing, and small planes. Brad plans to 
marry a few years after graduation and have a few 
championship boxers in the family to carry on the line.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Louisville, Kentucky, is where Bally was born, but Man- 
hattan was his home. After a year at Culver and one 
at Severn School, he entered the class of 1948, but 
Plebe Skinny gave him some trouble. Even after two 
plebe years at Annapolis, Bally retained a happy and 
level-headed attitude toward the "system," and he lost 
neither his desire to graduate nor his capacity for hard 
work. Bally's fine sense of humor and never failing 
enthusiasm made him a good companion at all times. 
He played as hard as he worked, and could make a 
squash game as important as a Wimbledon match. 
There were busy weekends entertaining girls from New 
York. An unfailing spirit and a will to win will see Bally 
through the toughest going.

WOODSTOWN, NEW JERSEY 

After high school, J. B. enlisted in the Navy where he 
served as an armed guard for two and one half years, 
earning the rate of Gunner's Mate, third class, and won 
a fleet appointment to NAPS, thence to the Academy. 
One of the "fathers" of the company, he was elected 
as company representative for four years, and was 
known and liked throughout the brigade. Despite the 
fact that he had to grind away at the academics a 
little harder than most, J.B. found time for sports, play- 
ing batt and company football, and doing his share of 
blood-letting during the batt lacrosse games each 
spring. The Fleet is getting in J.B. a very capable man 
with a great sense of humor and a genuine liking for 
his fellow man— and a man to whom the Service means 
more than just a job. 



ARLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Massachusetts was certainly well represented by Bob 
who hailed from nearby Boston, "the hub of the uni- 
verse," as George Apley would say. This lad with an 
ever present smile showed fine character in his jovial 
and cultured personality. His hard work and enthusi- 
asm in company sports won the admiration of his ship- 
mates while his dancing talents contributed to many a 
successful weekend. After Youngster Year, however, Bob 
confined these talents to one certain girl, and the 
volume of outgoing mail headed for Boston accounted 
completely for his spare time. He was conscientious 
in his studies, making good use of a fertile memory 
which paid off big dividends, especially in Bull which 
proved for him easiest and most enjoyable.

SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK 

Ken came to us after a year in the Navy, where he 
acquired an interest in a Naval career, so when the big 
chance for USNA came along he just could not turn it 
down. A quiet smile and a friendly manner won him 
many friends immediately. Although a twenty year man 
at heart, LeRoy was always glad when leave rolled 
around and he could vector out toward those rolling 
hills of upper New York. Always interested in sports, he 
obtained most of his stamina from being a stalwart of 
the flying squadron. He quickly acquired skill at squash 
and other sports and sparked many intra-mural teams 
to victory. Amiable and with a ready humor. Ken is 
marked for success in the future. 



Id sit n tad M. Chevalier 

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA 

Drew was busy studying engineering at Fresno State 
University when he received his appointment. Quite a 
musician, having played in dance bands in high school 
and college, he naturally divided his talents between 
the NA-10, where, from Plebe Year on, he had a steady 
job giving rhythm, and the Hellcats. While staying true 
to the OAO, Drew managed to get his share of drag- 
ging and the fame of a locker full of photos. Summer 
cruises gave him a chance to increase the collection of 
antique weapons in which he took an avid interest. 
Stimulated, perhaps, by some of his murderous instru- 
ments, he won numerals on the plebe fencing team. 
Although he didn't always see eye to eye with the Math 
Department, Chev put up a good fight, and managed 
to come out on top. He hopes to be a submariner if the 
old orbs hold out. 



John 31 ffiurhe 

BAY VILLAGE, OHIO 

In high school, Jack lettered in football and basketball, 
carrying these abilities on to Bullis, where he repeated 
the performance, and then to Oberlin College, which 
he attended under the V-12 program. He entered Navy 
late in Plebe Summer, but many depended even then 
on his steadiness and sound judgment to help them 
through the first few months. He played on the plebe 
basketball team, and spent his spare time working out 
in the gym, his favorite place during leisure time. 
Drawing offered on outlet for his creative thinking. 
Within his company he was always a top man with high 
ideals and morals. With his record we are sure that he 
will be a success in the Fleet and an attribute to the 
Service.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA 

Louisiana is still protesting Uncle Sam's abduction of 
this solid citizen of the South, for when he left, the 
Shreveport High School band lost its best saxophone 
player, and the school lost one of its top men. He spent 
two years in chemical engineering, Sigma Chi, and 
Kappa Mu Epsilon at L.S.U., losing his heart to a south- 
ern belle in the process, and came to Navy by way of 
the Fleet. Here, Glenn was always the backbone of 
the intramural sports. At one time or another he bols- 
tered the cross country, soccer, 150-pound football, 
and softball teams. His joviality can not soon be for- 
gotten by us who knew him. Congenial, cooperative, 
intelligent, and sincere were just a few of the adjec- 
tives which described him.

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA 

"J. R."— that was the common reference to this pint-sized 
member of '49— managed to survive the hazards of his 
four years capably, after Washington and Lee High and 
Columbia Prep in Washington. J.R. competed with both 
the plebe and JV soccer squads, and also turned out 
for Spike Webb's boxing tournaments, receiving two 
shiners as rewards for diligent efforts Youngster Year. 
His special interests lined up as classical music, chess, 
sailing, and philosophy. Although occasional dragging 
expeditions sometimes occupied his weekend time, Bob 
continued to scan the situation from the bachelor's de- 
tached point of view. Providing the Steam profs don't 
claim him as one of their own due to his knot-tying 
ability, he hopes to be a Naval aviator. 



fJiieigoM'lh Clement 

LEMOORE, CALIFORNIA 

Danny came to the Academy by way of the V-12 and 
NROTC units at the University of New Mexico. Although 
not a savoir theoretically, he put most of us to shame 
with his practical knowledge and experience in technical 
fields, electricity being the best example. He joined the 
juice gang Plebe Year, and for four years was one of 
the unsung heroes of Musical Club and Masquerader's 
shows. Anytime he wasn't dragging, either he had the 
watch or Patt, the OAO, couldn't come down for the 
weekend. The Drum and Bugle Corps, in which he 
twirled a mean tenor drumstick, also claimed a share 
of his attention. To those of us who have heard so many 
times that pep talk for the Supply Corps in particular, 
and USN in general, there is little doubt that Dan will 
be with the Navy for a long, long time.

ORANGE, NEW JERSEY 

A graduate of Farragut, Rip had already gained his 
nickname before he entered Navy, when his ripping 
attacks against the opponents' lines won him the posi- 
tion of quarterback on the New Jersey All-State football 
team of 1943. Though he concentrated solely on foot- 
ball here, where he starred in the JV line, he had al- 
ready proven his versatility by his service on Williams 
College's lacrosse team. Rip has not gained the laurels 
of the savoir only because the inclination to hit the 
books never seemed to present himself, but his hearty 
laugh and bluff good nature have attracted friends as 
a magnet attracts iron. His Irish gift of gab belied the 
fact that he has never kissed the Blarney Stone. The 
formula for his inevitable success is contained in his own 
//ords, "enrich and embellish."

NILES, MICHIGAN 

Give him ten men who are stout-hearted men, liking a 
good time, and disdainful of a little trouble, and Karl 
will give you ten thousand more, for his magnetic per- 
sonality always meant a good time. At times, however, 
he directed this leadership ability along lines that def- 
initely indicated his eminent desire to beat the system. 
Karl came to us from Western Michigan University, 
where he had played basketball. Here at Navy, he 
tried a new sport, and won squad letters for three years 
in a row on the crew. His popularity and ability to 
serve were indicated by his being elected to the Class 
Ring Committee, on which he did a fine job. Karl has 
the wit, brains, and good nature to keep him outstand- 
ing and successful— he will never lack friends or good 
times, because wherever he goes, both will follow. 



Mithard C. Clinite 

KIRKWOOD, MISSOURI 

Stretch completed high school with seven letters in foot- 
ball, basketball, and track, and the presidency of his 
class and the student council. He then attended New 
Mexico for two years in the ROTC, where his math work 
earned him a place in Kappa Mu Epsilon, his social 
standing a place in Sigma Chi, and his basketball a 
place on the starting five. Here it was not long before 
he won numerals in plebe basketball and crew, and 
graduated to a place on the varsity. In off moments, 
Stretch could be found lounging in his army B-robe, 
taking life easy, and planning a campaign to take him 
from the explorer class into the group that is settled. 
He has yet to decide what part of the service to enter, 
but, as he holds a private pilot's license, the air corps 
would be a good guess.

Ottoway Hills High School lost its floweriest and most 
dramatic leader when Rex discarded the reins as 
president of his senior class and stepped right into the 
Academy. In spite of his having had no previous col- 
lege education, Rex fared well and was one of those 
rare high school grads who managed to jump numbers 
yearly. As for athletics, Rex's versatility permitted him 
to enjoy most of the Academy's twenty-seven sports. 
He displayed particular ability in tennis, gymnastics, 
crew, and cross country. In the social realm, Rex en- 
joyed himself most when in quiet conversation with a 
lovely girl. His ability to make and hold friends as- 
sures him a happy and successful future.

BELLAIRE, OHIO 

The world's leading exponent of "relative merit" served 
nine months in the Fleet before obtaining a Naval Re- 
serve appointment to Uncle Sam's boarding school on 
the Chesapeake. The origin of his appelation "Gar" 
remains a deep, dark mystery but its use was so wide 
spread that people took it for granted. In addition to 
actively engaging in intramural athletics, Gar was al- 
ways ready to suggest a sporting proposition on any- 
thing from the Rose Bowl to a Navy Junior boxing bout, 
and in his spare moments he could be found quoting 
odds on some obscure ping-pong tournament. Gar was 
always cool under the fire of the Academic Department, 
sailing through without the slightest sign of a strain. 
Indifferent to dragging, he usually preferred to spend 
his Saturday nights with the other bridge addicts. 



John m. Culp 9 Jr. 

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA 

When Jack arrived here from Florida, he brought with 
him certain definite preferences to impress on the minds 
of us Yankees. Notable among these were his attach- 
ment to "hash puppies," yams, banana sandwiches, and 
a certain little southern blonde. As a student, Jack never 
was a star, but he always managed to defeat the Aca- 
demic Departments by dint of hard work and the 
maxim of never letting his social life interfere with his 
studies. Jack never boiled over under the rigors of 
Academy discipline, and always put the damper on 
our plans to blow up the O.D.'s shack in our disgust 
with the monotony of the "Dark Ages." With gradua- 
tion, Jack has realized the first of his life's ambitions. 
The second— that of being one of the Navy's fly-boys 
—he hopes to fulfill as soon as possible.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

For many years "The Naval One" had shown an ardent 
desire to give his all for the Blue And Gold, so after 
U.C.L.A. and ten months in the Naval Reserve, he found 
himself, stencil brush in hand, singing those laundry 
number blues. It was not long after his entrance into 
the Academy that Dick acquired so great an interest in 
the system that many rainy afternoons he could be 
found among his associates studying the reg book. The 
out-of-door type, he spent most of his leave time camp- 
ing and fishing in the lofty peaks of the Sierra Nevadas. 
Travel was also high among his many interests, and he 
was seldom without fast developing plans for cruise, 
the next trip to Mexico, or a weekend in Washington.

BUFFALO, NEW YORK 

Ed first began to develop that "casual look" as a wheel 
in the affairs of Bennett High School. Shortly there- 
after, the Navy discovered him and tried to make a hot 
pilot of him in V-5 at Hobart College, where the Kappa 
Sigs soon made him brother Dietrich. He slipped quietly 
into Navy on a third alternate, and drew on early ex- 
perience to take the wheel when '49 drew yawls for 
Seamo. Dabbling alternately in tennis, swimming, cheer- 
leading, and sack time, he whiled away the afternoons. 
Avowed interests also included lovely gals, good beer, 
and a favorite pipe, while high academic standing gave 
him time to pursue these with a diligence the gals and 
breweries could never regret. Despite an abhorrence 
for water, Ed hopes to surround himself with it in a 
Navy sub after graduation.

"Demy" sailed into the Academy after two years' ser- 
vice in Uncle Sam's Navy as an enlisted man, where 
he had a brief tour of duty on board the "Dirty D" and 
a longer stay at NAPS. Any spring afternoon we could 
find him down at the dinghy float helping the sailing 
team to victory, and in the winter he preferred to stay 
inside and spent his afternoons on the range, where 
he was captain and one of the crack shots of the rifle 
team. Jules learned quickly and stood high in his class 
both academically and with the Executive Department. 
As for girls, Demy seemed to have a special liking for 
nurses. Demy made friends easily and was well liked 
by everyone who knew him. This plus his capabilities for 
leadership make us certain of his future success.

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA 

The phrase, "My Wild Irish Rose" best described Doc, 
who left the party life of Beta Theta Pi at Carnegie 
Tech to come to us. As Doc went, so went the party, 
and his wit and personality were such that we always 
felt that we were having fun, even though it was often 
at our own expense. Before Carnegie Tech, Doc at- 
tended Riverside, where he played end on the football 
team. This football experience he put to good use with 
the company team, and the boxing experience he gained 
at Riverside was well displayed in many cruise boxing 
tournaments. He was also a member of the Spanish 
Club, but found his major difficulty to be discovering 
enough excuses to put away the books. That he did 
stand high academically indicated the quick mind and 
personality that spelled Doc and success. 






/o/t ## <HI. Donion 

AMSTERDAM, NEW YORK 

When John came to the Academy, he already had a 
year at Rensselaer Poly under his belt, and his collec- 
tion of scholarships attested to his ability to glide along 
easily under the academic strain. We remember him as 
never having been dressed in more than shoes and 
socks when the formation bell rang, but also as always 
being there— on time. Early in his Third Class Year, John 
realized the existence of the other sex, and since then 
he has never missed a chance to drag. Most of his non- 
dragging time he spent with his correspondence, the 
Glee Club, or playing Cornel Wilde in the fencing loft. 
An eye for pretty girls and a healthy appetite added to 
his enjoyment of life. John hopes to enter that august 
group known as Naval intelligence, where he expects to 
dig up some interesting addresses. 



Thomas J. i)i>tu*li4>a 

TOLEDO, OHIO 

Tom came to the Academy after a year in Naval Avia- 
tion, and another at Bainbridge. From the first, his 
ability, resourcefulness, and amazing capacity for work 
have been devoted to extra-curricular activities, such as 
the Hop Committee, on which he served for three years, 
as well as the Ring Dance Committee, on which he 
served Second Class Year, and this LUCKY BAG, on 
which, as Business Manager, he has been the constant 
thwarter of the Editorial Staff. His main outside interests 
lay in New York, where the endless string of plays, 
musicals, and hot spots provided him with weekend 
diversions. On the other hand, as was befitting for a 
man who was one of our most unusual combinations of 
the sublime and the ridiculous, Tom was probably the 
most devoted supporter of conventionalism in the com- 
pany.

LEWISTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA 

Already well on his way to getting a set of wings when 
the chance to enter Navy came, Jim forgot about the 
wings temporarily, packed his bag, and entered with 
our class. Academically secure despite his loud groans 
about bilging, he found time to enjoy himself, with 
sleeping as one of his major pleasures. In spite of his 
love for the sack, every fall found him out booting a 
soccer ball around with considerable success, and in the 
winter and spring intramural sports gained from what 
excess energy he could scrape up. His favorite hobby 
was putting out the word, subject notwithstanding, un- 
til he ran out of information or listeners ... he never 
ran out of subjects. The Navy's investment in Jim was 
a wise one, for in him they have gained a valuable 
officer, and we a good shipmate.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

Born in L.A., but having spent much of his life in Massa- 
chusetts and Texas as well, "Or" was rather well trav- 
elled even before he decided to make a career of it. 
When he had the opportunity (not too frequently since 
enrollment in the trade school) G 2 took to the outdoors, 
listing camping, skiing, sailing, horseback riding, and 
tennis among his many favorites. On the other hand 
he had a deep interest for and appreciation of philos- 
ophy and the arts, particularly classical music and great 
literature. Although Doov's inherent understanding of 
people and broad general background made him an 
engaging conversationalist, his easy, non-commital man- 
ner was deceiving, for underneath he was a thinker, a 
shrewd analyzer, and a far-seeing planner; but, as he 
said, "Talk is too easy." 



EVERETT, WASHINGTON 

Royce, who was born in God's country— Everett, Wash- 
ington, the land of stately trees and beautiful women 
—was always noted for his exactness in appearance 
and his steady plugging away at those Naval Academ- 
ics. He succeeded very well in this latter respect as he 
always stood in the top half of the class. Likeable Royce 
displayed his artistic talents in reproducing the counte- 
nances of his classmates, surprising each at all times 
with a likeness that was almost uncanny. Royce was a 
natural athlete and a good dancer which went well on 
weekends when one could see him at the hops jitter- 
bugging with the best of them. As he shoves off for 
Fleet duty, many good wishes go with him.

WINCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS 

Virginia gave the world Robert E. Lee; from Ohio came 
the Tafts; New York offered the people the Roosevelts; 
and Massachusetts, not to be outdone, produced the 
one, the only, the incomparable, Wee Willie Eaton, 
bridge player, yachting enthusiast, connoisseur of fine 
wines, and unrequitted lover of all girls named Sue. 
Willie hailed from the environs of the Hub, and like his 
roommate and alter ego, Tinkham, boasted of a broad 
"A." Our boy spent his spare time taking life as easy as 
the first class, the O.D., and the Reg book would permit. 
Bill's enthusiasm is Naval Aviation, and if he follows 
through, the Navy will have a natural born, full-fledged 
fighter pilot. 








TEANECK, NEW JERSEY 

After several months at Kings Point and one month as 
a Navy boot, Pappy entered the Academy. He survived 
the rigors of Plebe Year, occupying himself, then as 
now, with attempting to uphold the fair name of 
"Joisey." Selected for All-State honors in high school, 
he was sure to be an asset to the Navy soccer teams. 
Although he had once wanted to join the cadet ranks 
at West Point, Annapolis opened its doors first, and 
here he stayed. Many cadet soccer players have no 
doubt regretted this fact after clashing with the ag- 
gressive "Pappy." An "always happy" fellow, Dick is 
looking forward to a career in Naval Aviation, and 
plans to marry the OAO right after graduation.

MARCELINE, MISSOURI 

Jim took to Navy like a duck takes to water. It's not 
usually wise to make such comparisons, but in this case 
the saying fits, for from the day he took his oath, Jim 
and the Navy became inseparable partners. From his 
home in Marceline, he went to Missouri University, where 
he dabbled in chemical engineering, but with his sights 
set on a Naval career, he moved on to the Academy 
after one year of college. For four years now Jim has 
continued to amaze us by his manifold interests and 
activities apart from the academic field, in which, in- 
cidentally, he stood well near the top. The Choir, Glee 
Club, Band, Boat Club, and LOG all claimed some of 
his attention and to each he devoted a good share of 
labor and time.

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

Plebe Year, when they asked Pete how he liked the 
Navy, he answered characteristically, "Oh, I've always 
liked it." A Navy junior from the word go, and proud 
enough of it. Fully sailed over to the trade school from 
Severn Prep, where he had been picking up the pointers 
with which he won his appointment in the Presidential 
competitive examinations. '49 is proud of this Honolulu- 
born Californian. Though smaller in stature than is gen- 
erally necessary in collegiate athletics, Pete has over- 
shadowed many in this field. What he lacked in size 
he more than made up for in driving spirit and deter- 
mination. A multi-N winner in lacrosse and soccer, he 
always kept his locker covered with lacrosse sticks and 
soccer shoes, and has contributed much to the spirit 
of athletics in the Brigade. 



William £. Qawy 

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK 

Hailing from upstate New York, Bill entered the Naval 
Academy after attending the University of Rochester, 
Lafayette College, and seeing action with the Forty- 
fifth Infantry Division in Italy as a sergeant. As one must 
eventually come to all, a nickname came to Bill early 
during Plebe Year, his being Vul. Bill was almost al- 
ways available for a few fast games of handball or a 
game of cards, and like most of us at one time or an- 
other, was occasionally to be found answering the call 
of the sack in the late afternoon. When he had the 
time available, nothing interested him more than camp- 
ing in the mountains or travelling to some new and 
strange place. His broad experience and many capa- 
bilities should certainly help to clear the way to suc- 
cess in whatever activity he chooses to pursue.

NEWARK, NEW JERSEY 

When New Jersey sent Fritz to Annapolis, he immedi- 
ately set affairs in order and installed his own infallable 
system. After four successful years at East Side High 
School and a short spell in both Newark College of 
Engineering and the Navy, he snared a senatorial ap- 
pointment to the Academy, and eventually joined the 
ranks of the "pampered pets." Our first memories of 
him come when we remember how he drove the cares 
of Plebe Year into seclusion with his accordion playing. 
His athletic inclinations were many and evident in al- 
most all varieties of sporting endeavor. He excelled in 
intra-mural basketball, pushball, softball, football, and 
soccer, and was a mainstay of each team. He was 
always a diligent worker, a fair disciplinarian, a sin- 
cere friend, and a jovial comrade.

CLEVELAND, OHIO 

Mac was headed for Navy Pre-Flight when he got 
"Temporary Additional Duty" orders detouring him to 
the Academy. A versatile athlete, he was always very 
active in intra-mural sports when not engaged in JV 
football or tennis. A firm believer in the theory "A 
thing worth doing is worth doing well," he always stood 
in the top fifty of the class academically, with his great 
interest lying in Spanish, as was evidenced by his mem- 
bership in the Spanish Foreign Language Club. He was 
an avid reader of philosophy and diplomatic and histor- 
ical subjects, and developed for himself a set of princi- 
ples to which he adhered strictly in his everyday life. Mac 
spent his spare time reading and improving his outstand- 
ing bridge game.

Stephen S. €jltu%\ 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

The Navy put one over on Yale with this New Yorker. 
Steve, fresh out of Fieldston in the "big town," was 
snatched from the grasp of Yale University way back in 
the summer of 1945 by an observing Congressman who 
believed that this future '49er had what was needed to 
become a naval officer. We, his classmates, know that 
he was right. From the time that cutter crew 115 was 
formed during Plebe Summer right through to the last 
trying river, Steve has been hugging the top of his 
class. He was blessed not only with an outstandingly 
quick mind, but also with a spirit of tenacity that put 
him out in front in practically anything he undertook. 
A member of the golf team, he spent time with the LOG 
and movie taking for the N.A.A. 



{Richard €}lickman 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

From tinkling, honking, teeming Brooklyn came Richard. 
He lived by it, swore by it, loved it; his own, his native 
Brooklyn. His English major at Penn State made him 
an encyclopedia for our woes with the Bull Department. 
During Plebe Year he literally flew over the cross coun- 
try course, earning the name of Gundar. An ardent 
admirer of French culture, he wooed his ladies with bon 
mots, objects de cuisine, and Parisian chatter. Gundar's 
interests were as full and varied as his native Brooklyn; 
literature, music, food ... his constant supply of food 
attracted a crew to his room nightly. His omnipresent 
smile attracted many a drag, and his affable, literary 
spiced manner enthralled them. His fondest desire is 
to be stationed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard . . . just ten 
blocks from his home.

NEW BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS 

Coming from the old whaling town of New Bedford, 
Rube was destined for the sea. His first attempt to ful- 
fill his destiny was at Mass. Maritime Academy, from 
which, after two years, he was graduated with the rank 
of Third Assistant Engineer— that may account for the 
fact that he was a savant in steam. Not satisfied with 
that, however, Rube, wanting a more permanent at- 
tachment with the sea, came to Navy after twirling dials 
aboard a liberty ship for a few months. There was no 
question but that Milt's temperament was admirably 
suited for the Navy— the trials which, but for the five- 
mile limit, would have driven his classmates to drink, 
never phased him. He was one of the easiest to live 
with, and his generosity and unshakable sense of humor 
made his friendship one to be desired.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA 

"The Silent Sooner" might be the perfect nickname for 
this self-confident, hardworking boy who came to the 
Academy from the ranks of the Army. But never let his 
quietness fool you; he has always managed to get things 
done easily and efficiently. It has always seemed that 
the non-talkative boys have a way with the women, and 
Roy was no exception— that is, until he met his OAO. 
Though "Railroad" had no special athletic ability before 
entering the Academy, he became a fancier of gym- 
nastics and quickly developed himself into one of the 
top men on the side-horse. Roy found the academics 
no problem to his naturally brilliant mind, and, with 
radio and electrical experience gained in the Army, he 
took like a charm to the E.E. Department. 



SCARSDALE, NEW YORK 

Doug, commonly known to his friends by the name of 
"Guppie," attended Middlebury College way up in the 
wilds of Vermont before coming to the Academy. After 
a day's classes here, his first comments usually were 
"Where's the card game," or "Well, gotta hit the sack." 
If P.T. and Skinny and Juice labs were omitted from the 
program here, his life would have been completely 
happy. One of the brighter lads in the class, he needed 
little time for study, and so had plenty to spare for his 
chief hobby, reading, and his secondary hobbies, the 
telling of slightly off-shade jokes and indulgence in his 
favorite subtle sarcasm. His athletic career was confined 
to intra-mural sports, where his big event was wrestling. 
Doug should make a future of which he and the Aca- 
demy can be proud.

William C. Mall 

RUNNEMEDE, NEW JERSEY 

In high school Bill earned letters in four sports, con- 
centrating on that ancient and primitive form of homi- 
cide, lacrosse. After his sea duty time as a "skivvy 
waver" on the "Dirty D.," protecting the Chesapeake 
oyster pirates from enemy U-boats, Bill went to NAPS 
and then to the Academy. Although since he has been 
here Bill has learned what a "Dear John" letter is, he 
will always be a lady's man because he's an expert on 
blinker, too. His fondest dreams were those in which 
he was a signal officer on one of the Navy's fighting 
ships. We're all expecting great things from Bill be- 
cause he has plenty of determination and know-how 
to turn in a job well done. We'll all be back some day 
for the dedication of Hall Hall.

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA 

Here is Hambone, stand back girls! Don't tell him how 
big and strong and good looking he is, we have al- 
ready told him that, and besides, flattery will get you 
nowhere. His path of least resistance was through his 
stomach. He was known to hurry on two occasions . . . 
from the wardroom mess to his beloved super sack, and 
when a complete change of uniform was required in 
three minutes between the formation and late bells. 
Bone starred in swimming and rifle in high school, won 
All-Prep honors in football and swimming at Bullis Prep, 
and added lacrosse to these during his years at the 
Academy. Look for Hammy boy on your cruises to the 
south latitudes; his warm bloodedness seems to provide 
the motivating force behind his desire for permanent 
tropical shore duty. 



{Robert C. fflawdeman 

McALESTER, OKLAHOMA 

This prominent member of the Academy's brain trust 
hailed from McAlester, Oklahoma, one of those towns 
that makes you ask, "What's it near?" Two years at 
New Mexico Military Institute with math as his major 
seemed to have prepared Bob very well for Navy's 
scholastic hurdles, for he managed to stay consistently 
high in all subjects without undue strain. An excellent 
golfer, he played on both the plebe and varsity teams. 
Outside of golf, he participated in few main sports, al- 
though he could always be counted on to fill out a 
foursome in either handball or bridge. Still debating 
whether or not to remain in the Navy, Bob feels the 
air arm is the only lure that could permanently at- 
tract him.

WAVERLY, NEW YORK 

After high school, Harp attended Middlebury College 
under the V-5 program, and today his first love is still 
the air corps, which he hopes to enter after graduation. 
During his time here, he has occupied himself with the 
Glee Club, Choir, and Serenaders, to which groups his 
exceptionally fine singing voice has made him an out- 
standing contributor. On Sundays, after choir, he 
taught a Sunday School class to round out the day. 
Athletics also offered an outlet for his abundant supply 
of energy— a fine golf player, he has been a member 
of the plebe and varsity golf teams for four years. As 
he was always ready with a smile and out-of-date joke, 
his amiability made him a favorite at bull sessions and 
a popular companion for the scores of ladies, six years 
old and up, in his life.

JUNEAU, ALASKA 

Sure it gets cold in Maryland, but no matter how bitter 
the winds brew on the banks of the Severn, there was 
always one guy who didn't care about "collars up." 
Bill's hometown, Juneau, Alaska, never gets cold either, 
so he said. There was actually a better answer to why 
this Texas born Alaskan never gets cold— he just never 
slowed down long enough to feel what's going on 
around him. There was probably no other member of 
this class who had more irons in the fire at the Academy 
than Bill. Most of his non-academic interests, how- 
ever, were connected in one way or another with his 
camera, and with it he won the post of the LOG Photo 
Editor for two years. When not taking pics of some 
athletic team or Drag of the Week, Bill could be found 
behind a baritone horn in the Concert Band or gadget- 
tinkering in his room.

TEXARKANA, TEXAS 

A year at Texarkana Junior College and a brief stay 
at Mississippi in the V-5 were Bill's preparation for 
the Academy. Although Tex spent four of the best 
years of his life within a high stone wall, they could 
never fence in that radiant smile which spells be- 
nignity. After he injured his knee on the gridiron, Bill 
spent most of his time under billowing sails on the 
Chesapeake, the most expansive range this part of the 
country had to offer him. Whether winning the graces 
of the Lady Provost of Edinburgh or a smiling Texas 
belle, he proved his diplomacy and finesse time and 
time again. His tenacity, thoroughness, and subtle wit, 
together with his ability to win friends, insure a bright 
future which he certainly deserves.

SHERBORN, MASSACHUSETTS 

"No Trump" Henderson enlisted in the Navy right after 
high school, and the Navy, foreseeing a shortage of 
admirals in 1970, shipped him to NAPS, whence he 
came to the Trade School courtesy of SecNav. A Bay 
Stater, he followed the New England tradition, and rare 
was the Saturday that did not find him flaked out at 
the wheel of a yawl. He spent his non-sailing time 
playing handball, soccer, fieldball, bridge, and any 
other game that called for a cool head and a strong 
back. As well as these, the end of any football game 
found Don sweating out statistics in the press box with 
a few other talented slaves on the Public Relations 
Committee. A "Pale Pink" Mike, Don intended only 
Naval Aviation on graduation, but one can never tell — 
red is a dangerous color.

After starring in football, basketball, and baseball in 
high school, and then studying for a year at Bullis Prep, 
Bob was ready to take the Academy in stride. In aca- 
demics, a minimum of application brought him through 
successfully, and in athletics his past experience enabled 
him to be selected for the All-Brigade football team 
and to win his numerals in plebe swimming. As an 
amateur photographer, he has amassed an admirable 
collection of color slides. One of the most popular men 
in the company, Bob had a sincerity and natural charm 
that have won him an impressive array of friends. With 
the resourcefulness and leadership ability that he has 
demonstrated here, Bob will be a valuable asset to 
the Navy.

Born and bred in the helter-skelter life of the Bronx, 
Bob attended Brooklyn Tech High School, where he 
made a formidable record in academics, as well as 
contributing to the success of the swimming team. He 
then entered the Navy, and served several months 
aboard the cruiser Pasadena as an R.T.— his radio ex- 
perience was continually being put to good use in re- 
pairing radios around Bancroft. At the Academy, Snek 
(that's the last part of Hennekens spelled backwards) 
has devoted most of his time to company and battalion 
sports, including swimming, lacrosse, football, soccer, 
softball, and that famous sport of Plebe Year, pushball. 
Quite a tennis and basketball fan, he spent many a 
spare moment on the courts watching and playing. His 
friendliness, love of a joke, ready smile, and sincerity 
assure his future.

ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS 

Although from the "Heart of the Middlewest," Hib spent 
most of his pre-Academy days in the Navy, attending, 
and then teaching at Quartermaster's school. Before 
that he had attended the Universities of Illinois and Wis- 
consin, and fondly admits that his most important find 
at the latter was his OAO. Most any afternoon, Hib 
could be found engaging in volleyball or steeplechase, 
in both of which he was a major cog on brigade cham- 
pionship teams. Except for those weekends of watch, 
Hib never missed dragging his OAO and this proved to 
be his chief avocation at Navy, although he read a lot, 
and occasionally played a good game of pool. Al- 
though rather indefinite about plans beyond the im- 
mediate future, Hib is heading for the Fleet for the next 
few years, at least. 



COFFEEVILLE, KANSAS 

From the wheat fields and oil wells of Kansas came 
the "Stump" to Navy. A true water loving lad, he spent 
many an hour slaving over an oar for the crew team, 
rounding out the spring by putting the shot for the batt 
track team. Bob worked hard on getting checked out 
in all aspects of this man's Navy, starting out as an 
ETM striker and continuing with ten days in the V-12. 
Submarines are Bob's special interest in the fleet even 
though they do not have oars. Dragging and mail made 
up a good portion of his outside interests. Parties were 
one of Stump's fortes; he could usually be found in the 
midst of the planning and execution of these opera- 
tions. With his drive and congeniality, Bob makes a fine 
friend and will certainly make a success of his career. 



READING, PENNSYLVANIA 

Fritz was a pretzel eater, a tennis player, a lover of 
Beethoven. Fritz, a TKA man, was studying engineering 
at Penn State, and is seriously inclined toward Civil 
Engineering Corps in the Navy. With his academics 
brushed aside in a matter of minutes, he spent most of 
his time reading and listening to classical music. He 
enjoyed the Wagnerian and Norse styles most, and 
could pronounce the titles like a native. We often found 
him devouring the current issue of Harpers, a volume of 
philosophy, or a psychology text. He doodled in de- 
signs of airplanes and automobiles, and his teardrop 
design for the "Fritz-mobile" was well known to us be- 
fore an Italian designer "copied" it. Fritz is a true 
engineer.

WARREN, OHIO 

Hank has become a well-known personality during his 
four years with us. Many knew him as the man with 
no hair who lived in the varsity pool for three years; 
others knew him as not the gentlest of defensemen on 
the lacrosse team; all, however, knew him as the man 
with the big laugh and the blunt, but pleasing manner. 
The Navy has been his vocation since graduation from 
high school, when he enlisted in the V-5 flight training 
program, and was almost within sight of a pair of wings 
when he realized a life-long ambition, and came to 
Navy. His time in Naval aviation left its mark, however, 
and although it's taking longer this way, he still plans 
to wear those wings. Above average in almost every- 
thing, Hank was a versatile athlete, a good organizer, 
and a team man whether on or off the sports fields.

Few indeed are those who have not heard the pulsating 
rhythms of Bunny Berigan, the solid south, the Jazz 
Classics, etc., from his room, for relaxation to Mike was 
jazz records and one of his beloved pipes. Hoss has 
held down a guard position on the varsity for four 
years, where his tackles and blocking have proved him 
both a bulwark on the defense and a power on the 
offense. In the winter he led his company to constant 
wins in fleldball, where his bulk and ball sense made 
him an outstanding member of the attack. He was al- 
ways ready for a handball game and took on all chal- 
lengers. When you see him twisting across the floor 
with your drag, a smile on his face and a dreamy look 
in her eyes; brother beware! The Marines claim Bob 
for one of their future generals. 



EPPING, NORTH DAKOTA 

The Prof, so called because of his great thirst for, and 
suffusion of knowledge was, barring few, the most dy- 
namic and energetic man at Navy. His thirst for adven- 
ture took him prospecting in Alaska Youngster Leave. 
He has mingled with cattlemen, bankers, engineers, 
salesmen, and dirt farmers, and his humor and varied 
interests permitted him to meet man to man and talk 
eye to eye with all he met. Few men entered their aca- 
demics and recreations with such ardor as the Prof. 
Noises, bells, and pestering classmates bothered him 
not. Humorously enough, his famous nose has lead him 
to more facets of life than all the dreamers of the uni- 
verse. Once having met the Prof, one can never forget 
his sharp mind, his sparkling, picturesque speech, and 
his intense personality.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

From high school, Dick left little old New York for the 
first time and took his place with those on the Severn's 
shore. A star man, he was always ready to explain the 
intricacies of each P-work, and has guided many through 
the maze of academics. He loved soccer, despite the 
many bruises which seemed to be his lot, and returned 
early from cruise each year for fall practice with the 
JV squad. In addition, Dick found time for overnight 
sailing trips and dragging, although his sailing career 
was nearly cut short Youngster Spring, when can No. 5 
sneaked up on him in an off moment, and he wound up 
in someone's back yard in Eastport. Good judgment 
and work insure Dick's success after graduation. 



BUTLER, PENNSYLVANIA 

George came the long way, via the Navy V-12, Penn 
State, and Cornell where he picked up a little me- 
chanical engineering. Academically he has managed to 
score consistently, to stand right up with the brains and 
trade them blow for blow. Socially, George was always 
able to produce some previously unseen queen. Field- 
ball, the pride of the company, would not have been 
the championship club it was if George had not been 
in there rocking the opposition. Soccer formerly held 
George's interest but he gave it up as he advanced in 
age and wisdom. Filled with a love of the adventure 
and thrills that uncertainty offers, George liked to in- 
vade foreign lands loaded with lovelies or bid six no 
trumps with a pair of aces out against him. 



CANTON, OHIO 

After one year at Capital University in Columbus, and 
an additional year at Cornell in the V-12, Bob decided 
to go all out for Navy and join the regulars. Some- 
where in this checkered education he picked up a thor- 
ough and extensive knowledge of poker which he put 
to good stead amusing and horrifying his classmates on 
cruise. In the winter he turned either to the handball 
courts or to the radiator club and a fine collection of 
classical records. As a member of the LOG advertising 
staff, he did much of the tedious, behind-the-scenes 
work necessary to put out our humor magazine. Bob is 
all for shore duty, and the officer in charge of distribut- 
ing ensigns could make him mighty happy by giving him 
any duty firmly attached to terra firma.

LAKEWOOD, OHIO 

Acquainted with only the fresh water of the "Lakes" on 
the shores of the Buckeye State, Dick was naturally lured 
by the call of the sea. After discarding his civilian 
clothes, he spent most of Plebe Summer learning the 
ways of the military at extra duty. Ken soon developed 
a love for the sack and for cards. Whenever time could 
be found you would invariably find him up to his neck 
in a pinochle or pitch game. He was never satisfied 
unless he had his daily workout whether it be in com- 
pany or batt sports, the gym, or extra duty. His ex- 
pression of an ever present desire to be home provided 
the bright spot in our black Navy days. His generosity, 
quick smile, and dependability will serve him well in 
his career.

With the Universities of Dubuque and Iowa, service in

Athletics, he believed, were invented to depopulate 
the earth, but always willing to do his share, Kep helped

lived up to his name through such campaigns as the 
battle of the BTIIS cards, the fights of focs'le under 
Fargo and taming of the Marine Juniors. His search 
for absolute beauty paralleled science's quest for per- 
petual motion . . . often approached but admittedly 
impossible. 



MIDDLEPORT, OHIO 

The change from the country club of the V-12 unit at 
Dennison University to the grim realities of the system at 
Navy was a big step, but Fritz took it all in his stride. 
A welcome addition to the company teams, he brought 
his qualities of fair play and good sportsmanship to 
the fore there, and, initiated into the fields of toil and 
turmoil by pushball, he was conditioned for his later role 
as center for the batt football team. His meanderings 
among the field of amour were many and varied, but 
none of them seemed to have a lasting effect on our 
strong, silent man. Although a charter member of the 
holystone brigade on Youngster Cruise, he found the 
flying on Second Class Cruise more to his liking, and 
chances are that in the future he will be pushing Uncle 
Sam's warbirds.

FRANKLIN, PENNSYLVANIA 

"Big Stoop" had attended college at Penn State for a 
year, and had served hitches in both the Army and 
Navy before he came to the Academy. Although his 
sports experience had been limited to basketball. Ken 
promptly won the tackle position on the plebe football 
team, and in later years found himself playing the same 
position with the varsity. Crew, however, turned out 
to be his favorite sport, for his 6' 3" frame covered 
with over two hundred pounds of muscle enabled him 
to wield a really mean oar. For four years he has 
played a big part in the crew's victories, his greatest 
thrill coming Youngster Year when he rowed with the 
varsity crew that won the Poughkeepsie Regatta. After 
graduation, Ken's dreams will be realized when, after 
four long years, he stands before the altar with Fran.

UTOPIAN, IOWA 

After Loras College and twenty-one months of both 
Navy and Army life, Red was already a merger product 
when he first stepped inside Bancroft. Although at times 
Kretsch might have disagreed, from the very first he 
took to Academy existence like a P.T. boat to water. 
Never one to let the system pinch too hard, this loyal 
son of Utopian found that academics left ample time 
to join the boys on the soccer field or handball court, 
and few were the sports for which Red lacked either en- 
thusiasm or ability. Occasionally forsaking the athletic 
field, he utilized off hours to delve into the intricacies 
of higher literature. Women provided merely casual 
diversion to the redhead, and he seldom maintained 
active interest in more than ten or twelve at a time. 



U«UC*€4> J. I*M,<>ljr. <]W. 

ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA 

After he attained the valedictory in High School, Wally 
followed a brief term at Lehigh University with a hitch 
as a seaman RT, and civilian life at Muhlenburg before 
Navy. With his keen intellect and broad background, 
from the first he placed himself at the top of the class. 
His good humor, sharp wit, and pleasing personality 
have made him well liked, and his versatility as an 
accomplished pianist made him much sought after at 
any social gathering. In addition to music, his other hob- 
bies were photography, novel and short story writing, 
and the composition of musical comedies. Wally looks 
toward the submarine service after graduation. With 
his admirable record and promise, he is a likely candi- 
date for the man most likely to succeed. 





220 



PEORIA, ILLINOIS 

Bud, as he was called by his fellow tribesmen, was the 
first member of the noble Cherokee tribe to inhabit the 
second wing— any similarities to Cherokees, living or 
dead was purely coincidental. Bud's permanent wig- 
wam was located in Peoria, Illinois, where he excelled 
in football and basketball. He was known as "Chief 
Crazy Horse," after a great warrior of the Sioux tribe 
in generations gone by. Coming to the Academy from 
Bradley College and a sojourn in the United States 
Army, Bud earned the friendship and respect of us all 
through his ability to take it with a smile. His energetic 
nature and good clean honesty will carry Bud far in 
his chosen branch of the Service. 






Ploy <W). Hank&nau 

SCARSDALE, NEW YORK 

One of Westchester's better products, Roy could never 
be accused of allowing academics to interfere with the 
serious side of life, wine, women, and song. A good 
athlete and a very good bridge player, he managed 
to struggle through the seemingly endless days without 
being the least bit bored. Whether it was a football 
weekend or a hop, Roy was always happy as long as 
school was out. Although he had small differences of 
opinion with the Steam and Skinny Departments, he 
has now seen the light. Never the most reg man in the 
Academy, Roy was largely successful in evading the 
long arm of the O.D. with only a few measely hours 
spent in winning E.D. cutter races for the greater glory 
of the class of '49. 



John Jl Mlansi ll 9 <Jr. 

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY 

Jack was almost too good to be true— whether it was 
on the tennis, basketball, soccer, or volleyball courts, on 
which he won assorted letters and numerals, or on cruise, 
in classrooms, the mess hall, or any other place where 
personalities were uncovered, he demonstrated, with 
almost calculated nonchalance, his ability to get along, 
his keen sense of humor, and his background as a 
Kentucky gentleman. Jack's big ambition was to breed 
and raise horses at the farm he hopes to found in the 
future. Raise the point of horses, and you'd discover a 
half-hour's worth of riches from the wealth of his equine 
information, presented in so interesting and confident 
a manner as to entrust equal confidence in all his en- 
deavors.

WOBURN, MASSACHUSETTS 

Bob resigned his commission as a second lieutenant in 
the Army Air Corps to come to the Naval Academy. A 
conscientious student, he devoted much of his spare time 
to reading and studying languages with the result that 
his French ranked with the best in the class. Fall, 
though, found Bob busy on the 150 pound football 
team, on which he played tackle since its inception in 
1946. Although the quiet type, he had a keen sense of 
humor, and could be counted on to appreciate one's 
favorite jokes. At present he threatens to remain a 
bachelor for at least for a few years. He hopes to get 
back in the blue by way of Naval Aviation as soon as 
possible, and all of his friends are sure that his Naval 
career will be an especially brilliant one. 



Milan <m. £indy 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

Al was strictly a star man on any weekend. One might 
even say that his weekend "Joy" brought light into the 
darkest of Dark Age Saturdays. During the week extra- 
curricular activities took their tolls of Al's time. While 
masquerading as the voluptuous "Butter-cup" in "Op- 
eration Pinafive," he acquired a distinction which after- 
wards made him invaluable in cruise "happy hours." In 
football he was one of those rough "Mighty Mite" line- 
men. With the experience gained at Valley Forge he 
outflanked the Executive Department shamefully, and 
the academics gave him little or no worry. Perhaps Al 
took his hints from Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends, 
for his winsome personality and wholesome character 
enriched any occasion. 



Theodore J. f tiwMm 

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND 

Teej has been a source of constant amazement to his 
friends throughout our four years here. His ability to 
scan an assignment lightly and have it cold has amazed 
everyone. Squint-eye claimed that he had to save his 
eyes for Semper Fidelis when he was graduated so he 
read all forms of literature but textbooks. His social 
ability even surpassed his ever-surprising personality. 
No man dared introduce a cute drag to him without 
forewarning the doomed girl that she was about to 
lose her heart. Even so, T. J. was never at a loss for 
a queen, from Florida to Florence. Always in search 
of new fields to conquer, Ted was the Sammy-Lu-Baugh- 
Jack of the J.V. football team in the fall and spring, 
while starring on championship fieldball teams and 
burning up the handball courts in the winter.

William W. ftjnth 

AMARILLO, TEXAS 

Bull came to the Academy after serving a year in the 
Army and the Navy. A back injury in spring practice 
cut short a very promising career after a brilliant start 
as fullback for the undefeated '49 plebe football team, 
but that didn't dim his ardor for golf, tennis, or whatever 
else was in season. He hopes to follow in his father's 
footsteps as a head coach. Although he had no OAO, 
his locker door was plastered with pictures of beauti- 
ful young hopefuls. Aside from his capacity for food, 
Bill's outstanding trait was the perseverance with which 
he saw a job through. Our recollections of this bull- 
built Texan in future years will certainly include his big 
smile, his sincerity and true friendship, and those Mark 
42 ears. 






Clinlan D. VlMaeDoaald 

DULUTH, MINNESOTA 

Although originally a product of the land of Paul Bun- 
yan, Pete came to Navy via various routes of the Fleet, 
including NROTC and NAPS, where he picked up the 
inevitable Mac. During Plebe Year he gained a deep 
respect for a breadpan and the voice of authority, and 
a true love for the Service. He was always the modera- 
tor in gripe sessions, cheering the despondent, and calm- 
ing the furious. After participating in plebe swimming 
and dinghy sailing, he changed to intramural sports for 
the rest of his time. Although a middleman academic- 
ally, he was tops in amour, and subscribed to the theory 
of keeping them all happy. Well liked by everyone, a 
capable man with a stern eye for every errant plebe, 
Mac will be an excellent and respected addition to 
the Fleet. 



Jolts* m. mallard, Jr. 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

Johnny was born a Navy Junior in Philadelphia and be- 
gan his formal education at Georgia Tech. Two months 
before his graduation, he resigned from the NROTC pro- 
gram and came to the Academy convinced that the Navy 
was to be his life's work. John was perpetual motion 
personified. After a "terrific" evening or an "excrutiat- 
ing" day at Navy, John's only requirement seemed to 
be a hot shower after which he was ready to "roar" 
off again. These words he used continuously, yet they 
always made us laugh. Like his spirit, his vocabulary 
typified Johnny's personality. John will succeed for 
three reasons: he is modest, he makes a strong impres- 
sion on those who know him, and he is self-confident.

Warren It. UMerrili 

HOLDERNESS, NEW HAMPSHIRE 

A former flyboy, Rusty labored these four years with just 
one purpose in mind— to graduate and return to the 
flying fleet. Originally from New Hampshire, he ac- 
quired at McKinley Tech in Washington the skill in 
shooting that he showed on the plebe rifle team, and 
would have, but for eyestrain, showed on the varsity. 
It was two years before suave, wavy-haired Rusty took 
full advantage of the Academy social life, but from 
then on he made up for lost time. His hobby of photog- 
raphy, which won him the post of Secretary-Treasurer 
of the Photo Club, has left him with an account of our 
life here that will be of interest to all of us when we 
meet him in the fleet in years to come. 



Arthur H. ffllihw *%!%*) 

SAN ANGELO, TEXAS 

Mike dropped in from out Texas way bringing with 
him quite a few pounds of beef and a lot of Texas 
humor. Navy's system had little effect on him, for from 
six months on, Mike was a hard-working, exceptionally 
likeable fellow. At Navy Tech he abandoned his usual 
full varsity sports program (in football, tennis, track, 
and baseball in high school and college) in order to 
pursue a more intense mental course. Mike was a travel- 
ling man, too, using his leaves to jump off to some spot 
he had never seen before. Most of the United States, 
parts of Canada, Mexico and even Alaska have known 
his presence on these leave excursions. Probably the 
most conspicuous thing about this Texas boy was his 
consistent unending drive towards his goal. 



James £. tlt<l <uj 

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA 

At high school, Jim was an outstanding member of his 
class, winning awards in football, track, and boxing, 
and being valedictorian and senior monitor of his class. 
Here he has continued to be outstanding, playing JV 
and batt football, perfecting his javelin-throwing tech- 
nique for the batt track team, and entertaining us with 
the products of his artistic talents for drawing and paint- 
ing, whether "pinup or portrait." The "Colonel" was 
liked everywhere for his unfailing good nature, his deep- 
seated sense of fair play, and his thoughtfulness, and 
his unusually good judgment and keen knowledge of 
human nature have impressed us all. Jim, who claimed 
that he was from so far south that to him, Georgians 
were Yankees, has high hopes of someday becoming 
an admiral in the Confederate States' Navy.

Joseph 0R. <Hfowisoft 

ELLSWORTH, KANSAS 

Though the academics never bothered him half as much 
as he thought they did, Joe was more than willing to 
accept that diploma, for, wrapped carefully in that cer- 
tificate was a hometown OAO, and his chief mental 
hazard, outside of the books, for two and a half years, 
was how to keep that ring on her finger. During his 
off-hours, we could always find Joe either sleeping on 
his bed, tooting his cornet, snoozing on a chair, help- 
ing the choir with his beautiful tenor voice, or catching 
some shut-eye. His stocky frame could be seen during 
the winter months springing from the diving boards in 
the Natatorium, where he was Navy's crack diver for 
three years. Possessed with an energetic vitality and a 
persistent, stubborn, but profitable outlook, Joe, with 
his laugh, will long be remembered.

James JO. ( tHtMS's t ett/ 9 Jw. 

ARDSLEY, NEW YORK 

After high school, where, in addition to excelling in 
academics, he had won letters in football, track, rifle, 
and lacrosse, Jim attended Wesleyan College in the 
V-12, where, as well as being initiated into Beta Theta 
Pi, he continued his athletic career with intercollegiate 
competition in wrestling and track. Soon after his en- 
trance, his nickname, "Atom," was born— based on the 
explosive power and speed contained in his small sta- 
ture. These qualities have often since been shown on 
the cinder oval of Thompson Stadium and in the gridiron 
battles of our championship 150-pound football team. 
In going to the fleet, Jim is following in the footsteps 
of his father, now retired. His quiet nature and pleasant 
smile have gained him many stalwart friends who wish 
him luck and success in future years. 



Donatd £t. nadia 

PORTLAND, OREGON 

Whoever said "A friend in need is a friend indeed" 
must surely have been thinking of Don, for, in the years 
that we've spent with him, he has certainly proved 
himself a friend at all times. After high school, where 
he lettered in baseball three years in a row, he majored 
in liberal arts for a year at Oregon State College. That 
his baseball experience has helped him was proved by 
his winning three squad letters here as a member of 
the varsity. That Don had little trouble with the books 
we credit mainly to a keen mind. We feel that he will 
have as little trouble with life, and that his career will 
be a successful one, for his friendliness and natural zest 
for a good time will win for him the same popularity, 
success, and wealth of friends that he won here.

Curtis §1. morion 

MOLINE, ILLINOIS 

After high school, where he had lettered in wrestling, 
track, and football, as well as engaging in dramatics, 
life became a whirl of transfers for Rocky, starting with 
mechanical engineering at Augustana College, going to 
the V-12 at Cornell, then to Norfolk, where he served 
in the Fleet before coming to Navy, his last stop. Al- 
though not very big, Rocky packed quite a punch, as 
his opponents in the ring will testify. Besides boxing, 
he competed in plebe football, varsity track, and com- 
pany gym, as well as being an active member of the 
Portuguese and Ornithology Clubs. Girls were attracted 
to him as bees are to honey, and, not in the least averse 
to the weaker sex, he dragged when finances permitted, 
but kept the fires burning for a Baltimore gal like the 
one-woman man he ended up. 



£dwawd J. €t) 9 Connell 9 Jr. 

BRONX, NEW YORK 

New Yorker by birth but Irishman by name and tempera- 
ment, Ned was known for his gift of gab and the roguish 
eyes that showed his delight for the simple things. We 
in the wigwam knew him as Chief Laughin' Face, an 
honorary member of The Great Cherokee Nation. Dur- 
ing the recent conflict he spent thirty months in the 
Marines and some time on the "peaceful" little islands 
in The Great Calm Waters to the West. During his high 
school days he became an accomplished artist with the 
pool cue, an art that didn't help him amid the T square 
and eraser dust. His winning smile and "poisonal 
magnotism" have carried him to the notice of everyone 
in the Brigade and will carry him far in his chosen pro- 
fession, the Marines. 



Philip S. nelson 

PORT WASHINGTON, NEW YORK 

Phil has been as outstanding here as he was in high 
school, where, in addition to being a class leader, he 
had been a three-year letterman in basketball, and the 
field general of the football team. Here he was the 
nucleus of the strong line that won three Intercollegiate 
Championships for the Navy 150-pound football team. 
Not satisfied with three N's in football, Middy Phiddy 
also played lacrosse, where he was awarded two squad 
letters for his efforts. His keen mind and sparkling per- 
sonality will be as hard to forget as the fun we had 
with him. In years to come, Phil's career will follow 
the same line that it already has in high school and at 
the Academy— it will be marked with many friends and 
achievements, just tributes to his winning ways. 





226 



RICHMOND, VIRGINIA 

From the old south came this good-looking stalwart who 
gave the profs so much pronunciation trouble. After be- 
ing on the track team and being elected to Quill and 
Scroll in high school, Bob went to three semesters of pre- 
med in the V-12 at Richmond University, where he was 
on the football team and went Kappa Alpha. Here he 
has participated in varsity track, batt boxing, and batt 
track, as well as singing with the choir. With music being 
his chief interest, it was not surprising that he was a very 
accomplished classical pianist. Bob was one of those 
people who have friends everywhere. His ideals were 
high, his character was strong, and his honor was con- 
tagious. His line plunge into life will not be denied, and 
we will hear more of him on the honor rolls of the future. 






NEENAH, WISCONSIN 

He sailed the lakes in the summer and iceboats in the 
winter. He skated Lake Placid and skied in the Adiron- 
dacks. He lived in Wisconsin and attended school in 
New York. He was one of the skippers of the Highland 
Light, and gave up two weeks of Youngster Leave to 
sail the Light in the Bermuda race. He had but one 
trouble, his eyes. When he could see the spots, he was 
a shrewd, cagey bridge player, with his photographic 
mind engraving all the played tricks on his memory. 
He mentally multiplied and divided faster than our 
slide rules, and jumped numbers while hardly studying 
at all. His diligent work on the Advertising staff of the 
LUCKY BAG has put him in good training for the Sup- 
ply Corps, unless he can squint at the eye chart more 
adeptly. 



ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA 

The Academy has been Warren's one desire ever since 
he gurgled his first word, "Navy." Born in Chefoo, 
China, he saw his share of the world, had a year of 
engineering in college, where he played football and 
basketball, served a tour of duty in bell-bottoms as a 
radarman, and finally came to rest on the banks of the 
Severn. Despite a college injury, he has made a good 
showing with crew, track, and many company sports. 
Most of "Shermo's" boundless energy has been devoted 
to services as Chairman of the Class Crest and Ring 
Committee, Brigade Activities Committee, TRIDENT staff, 
Photo Club, LUCKY BAG, Masqueraders, Musical Club 
Show, and a host of others. Weekends were devoted 
to sleep and collecting Bing Crosby records until an 
admiral's daughter temporarily reclassified one Red 
Mike. When Warren leaves here, he starts toward his 
second goal— wings.

James £. Pallaw§ 

EL PASO, TEXAS 

Although this Longhorn was a rare specimen, being 
kind of quiet, we soon found that his tranquillity was a 
front for the real man. He was inclined to be a "bar 
and bell" boy, and during any afternoon an equally 
enterprising man could find him over in MacDonough 
playing Smoe forty-nine times over a chinning bar. In 
addition he filled out the various sports seasons excel- 
ling for his company in touch football, boxing, bowling, 
volleyball, and softball, contributing more than his share 
to bringing home the bacon. Jim served a short hitch 
in bell bottoms, working for the "wheel," but came to 
OOSNA just in time for the closing gun on the class of 
'49. He joined the plebes just as they joined the Brigade 
and never has gotten over beating the system out of 
Plebe Summer.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

Hailing from the southernmost part of southern Cali- 
fornia, Rog transferred to the Academy after a term at 
U.S.C. Anything dealing with aircraft had interest for 
"Purd," and although he rarely missed a weekend of 
dragging, he kept his locker so full of pictures of super- 
sonics and jets that there was no room left for the 
femmes. Though he was interested in all sports, his first 
love was soccer, and the awards that covered his B-robe 
and his invitation to the Olympic tryouts were evidences 
of his skill with the foot. An avid photographer, he 
rarely missed covering an event of importance with his 
35mm., and each Sunday entered into the battle of the 
darkroom. Roger's heart lies with the Leathernecks— the 
family line— where his gameness, wit, and stick-to-itiv- 
ness will carry him far. 



William C Peterson 

SOPERTON, GEORGIA 

Pete came to Naval from Georgia Tech, with a passion 
for Georgia politics, and an endless store of talk about 
Georgia's governors. Although he never seemed to 
know whom he was going to drag until right before the 
hop, his easy-going nature got him femmes wherever 
he went— even Crabtown. He never failed to take his 
daily workout in the gym to keep in shape, but in aca- 
demics he was as easy going as elsewhere, staying just 
above the 2.5 mark in Skinny and Dago, although he 
hit the Math with practically no effort. His chief Plebe 
Year trouble was finding the answers to Lagen's impos- 
sible professional questions. A true southerner, he never 
would learn to sing "Marching through Georgia," and 
never gave up his southern drawl.

Claude J. Quitten 

BEDFORD, INDIANA 

The Cherokee of them all was this proud warrior from 
Bedford, Indiana, whose name varied from "Blooper" to 
just plain Claude. He excelled in the pronunciation 
of that favored Indian expression, "Ugh!" Coming to 
the Naval Academy from Notre Dame and the Navy, 
Blooper excelled in his studies at the House of Deten- 
tion. He not only put his name on the top of the class 
list, but he also helped others to keep their names on 
the books. It was hard to find where his answers came 
from. We searched his sack for four years and found 
absolutely nothing but thoroughly flattened feathers. 
Claude will never have trouble making life a success. 
His keen understanding of human nature and his jovial 
personality, plus a sense of complete relaxation makes 
the Blooper at home with anyone anywhere. 






C. £uaene i±€wi\4»* 

BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS 

From deep within the heart of the Razorback State, via 
the Pacific Theater, where he served as a radioman, 
came Gene. This quiet operator understood the finer 
points of Spanish culture, for one leave he took off for 
Mexico City and came back "tocando las castanetas." 
Almost any day we could find him rattling his gourds, 
clicking the castanets, or listening to the latest of South 
American rhythms. Instead of slaving away, Gene 
sensed the right solutions to Math probs and worked 
them out by feel and intuition. Gene was one of the 
few of us who understood and firmly believed in the 
system. He is most interested in Engineering Duty Only, 
and wants to exercise his intuitive powers designing new 
turbines and steam plants. 



James J>. Pleddiek, Jr. 

DENVER, COLORADO 

When Jim is an admiral, they will still be telling the 
story of his four unsuccessful attempts to moor a YP to 
the sea wall during a bumper drill. That's only one of 
many stories we'll enjoy rehearing about a fellow whom 
we admire and respect, not only for his natural ability 
to keep us laughing but also for his sincerity as a friend 
whom we could count on any time. Jim was one of those 
"few and far between" fellows who have a magnetic 
quality of personality, that of making everyone he meets 
his immediate friend and admirer. He sailed in to the 
Academy from Denver, Colorado, by way of Notre 
Dame. A stalwart member of many a good battalion 
track team, he didn't confine his athletic activities to the 
cinder oval, but was a fine wrestler as well.

DENVER, COLORADO 

"Navy Bob" was undoubtedly one of our most versatile 
men. Active in all things musical, he had a piano 
repertoire that included a large portion of the classics 
and all the Tin Pan Alley tunes of the last twenty 
years. As well, Bob devoted considerable time to first 
accompanying, and then directing the Glee Club, and 
occasionally indulged his flair for composing. His athr 
letic interests were varied, and included soccer, field- 
ball, and pushball. A former V-12 at Westminster, Bob 
will not find any field too difficult for him. Being with 
him was like a day at the circus, with Bob keeping all 
three rings going. Whether Admiral-of-the-Fleet, or 
Ward Heeler of District "N", Bob will show the same 
zest and whole-heartedness that he has displayed in 
everything he has undertaken. 



UUhtttd HI. I*4nnl4>t) 

ARLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Dick hailed from the traditional home of ships and 
sailors, and although his New England background 
wasn't evident in his speech, one just had to mention 
the Hub in his presence and he would leave no doubt 
in anyone's mind as to where he was from. Rom al- 
ways kept his slide rule free and ready for running 
though he had little trouble with academics. Thus he 
had plenty of time to devote to other activities which in- 
cluded the various intramural teams of company sports 
and the ever present fascination of weekend dragging. 
Never one to display disinterest in the routing of chow 
in the messhall, Dick will be a leader in the wardroom. 
Always ready to do his part and do it well, Dick will be 
a good shipmate, a good friend, and a credit to the 
service he represents. 



David §1. Iii<<> 

STATE COLLEGE, PENNSYLVANIA 

After a summer spent on a Great Lakes ore boat in 
what he fondly referred to as the "real navy," Reg 
realized that his ambition was for the life of the sea, 
and left his Western Pennsylvania home to come to the 
Naval Academy. Although he came straight from high 
school, his interest and determination in his work, and 
his skill with the "guessing wand"— slip-stick, that is— re- 
sulted in his starring in academics. Despite his ardent 
love for his sack during the day, he devoted his after- 
noons to sports and his weekends to dragging and the 
dark room. Soccer held Reg's greatest interest, and, 
after working his way past the plebe and JV teams, he 
gained himself a place on the varsity and an N-star. We 
wish him the best of luck in his career.

William CI Moo* 

WILMINGTON, DELAWARE 

Swoose's smile was one that was more than infectious— 
rather, irresistibly contagious! It was an unusual smile- 
slow, winning, and with an inner sense of amusement. 
It seemed to reveal the disdain for strict conventionality 
and undesirable regulations that was one of his most 
outstanding characteristics. Before attending the Aca- 
demy, Bill attended Bullis Prep, where he starred on 
one of the most successful football teams in that school's 
history. He was chosen on the All-Prep team in Wash- 
ington in 1944 and played an outstanding game in the 
All-High-All-Prep contest of that year. For three years 
he has been a star of our exceptional J.V. football team, 
and has won his numerals in J.V. lacrosse. He achieved 
some success in avoiding books; little in avoiding 
OOW's.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND 

Out of the blue in his war-converted PBM came Frithiof, 
the terror of the skyways, with his slipstick belching 
thunder and the props singing Navy Blue and Gold. 
After working at the Martin plant in Baltimore, Sag 
joined Uncle Sam's Navy to fly one of his own planes. 
Annapolis bound, we found him at the Academy as one 
of the few midshipmates who didn't find it cold in Mary- 
land. Not only a member, Sag managed and coached 
the radiator squad. This gave him a chance to pursue 
his other interests . . . good books, good music, and 
bull sessions with his many friends. Sag stepped over 
the academics at the Academy with maximum success 
and minimum effort. Whatever shape or form the PBM's 
of the future take, they are sure to have him at the 
controls. 



Wilbur M. Sample 

SPRING VALLEY, MINNESOTA 

After Macalester College, Will, a Pfc. in the Army, 
thought of West Point, but his better judgment led him 
to abandon the mud and khaki for the Blue and Gold. 
Taking academics and the Executive Department in 
stride right from the start, he evaded demerits and man- 
aged to stand high in the class. Not exactly an oper- 
ator, although seldom without a drag, he avoided drag- 
ging blind after his luck at this form of gambling ran 
out early in Second Class Year. Active in company and 
battalion sports, from soccer to fieldball, Will also served 
on the Christmas Card Committee, and contributed much 
to the designing and production of our card. Will plans 
to stay in the Navy, and hopes to get into aviation, prob- 
ably motivated by memories of the strenuous life aboard 
the Kearsarge on Second Class Cruise.

WILMETTE, ILLINOIS 

Through four years at the Naval Academy, Frank, a 
Northwestern man of a year and a half's standing, re- 
mained very partial to the Wildcats, the Chicago Cubs, 
and the Tribune. Quite studious, he spent much of his 
time being pestered by dope seekers. The rest of his 
time was devoted to writing press releases and maga- 
zine articles dealing with Navy athletics, and manag- 
ing the basketball and baseball squads. His hobby was 
collecting sports items— anyone who wanted to see the 
past records of the Chicago Cubs or Bears had only to 
look him up. Once past the trials of Plebe Year, he 
added new interests to the old— his eyes had a tendency 
to wander from the steam books towards Baltimore. 
Frank is looking to a future with the public relations 
men of the Navy. 



Donald §1. Schmidt 

ST. JOSEPH, MISSOURI 

Shortly after Harry entered the White House, another 
of Missouri's sons, Don, entered the grey halls of Navy. 
An ex-infantryman, he had studied mechanical engi- 
neering at the University of Wisconsin in the V-12, 
Though "Don Juan" had all the requisites for being a 
ladies' man, he spent his four years as a Red Mike, liv- 
ing by the motto "Women are a snare and a delu- 
sion—." Standing well above the two hundred mark aca- 
demically, he played company basketball, football, vol- 
leyball, and Softball, and acquired his nickname, "Bull," 
as a well-deserved honor for his story-telling ability. 
Although he wasn't very large in stature, in character, 
friendliness, and common sense, he assumed the pro- 
portions of a giant, and should be a success, whatever 
he does. 



William C. Sandlin 

ALEXANDER CITY, ALABAMA 

Despite two years of the military life at Marion— which 
should have been warning enough—, Sandy deserted 
Alabama, and came to Navy after majoring in me- 
chanical engineering as a Phi Delta Theta at Auburn, 
and six months in the Army Air Corps. Not only was 
Sandy a good golfer, he was also an outstanding boxer, 
the winner of a Brigade Boxing Championship, and the 
winner of a victory for the Navy team over a kaydetsing 
during Amphibious Maneuvers. His taste in women varied 
from the small and pert to the tall and stately, but was 
always good. Aside from dragging, he spent much 
of his time listening to classical music and drafting 
plans for the ideal plantation estate. Whatever his 
ambitions may be, Sandy's warm friendliness and ability 
to get along in any crowd will aid him in achieving 
them.

ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO 

The "General," a sound authority on the middle and 
southwest, as well as the possessor of a great wealth 
of general knowledge, enjoyed three main hobbies here, 
when not fighting the Bull profs. First and foremost was 
sleep— his byword was "to stray far from one's bed is an 
unnecessary evil." Far from lazy, however, he pursued 
his other hobbies, correspondence and photography, 
tirelessly, and with great success, as was witnessed by 
the magnitude of his mail and the steady stream of 
buddies with picture problems. He proved his athletic 
ability and leadership by organizing and leading cham- 
pionship cross country and steeplechase teams. During 
his twenty months in the Fleet, Frank developed a fond- 
ness for the Amphibious Corps, and will probably spend 
his future in the LC-LS fleet.

RENO, NEVADA 

The "biggest little city" has provided one of the biggest 
little midshipmen in the person of Georgie. His electrical 
engineering studies at the Universities of Nevada and 
California, coupled with his naturally alert mind, have 
placed him high in the class. Youngster Year he rose 
from his battalion track team to win the broad jump 
in his first varsity competition, and ever after he was 
one of the top men in his event. His keen sense of 
humor and the prodigious quantities of salami with which 
he kept us constantly supplied added greatly to our 
enjoyment of Academy life. Direct, likeable, and pos- 
sessor of a disarming chuckle, George has made a host 
of friends in all classes. Personality, ambition, and un- 
usual capability make him a man of whom the Navy 
will be proud. 



Charies ( dfo. Smith 

TYLER, TEXAS 

The Navigation Department tried, but never convinced 
Pecos that Polaris wasn't directly over Amarillo, and that 
the Southern Cross couldn't be seen straight up from 
Brownsville. Texas, Utopia, the universe— all were syn- 
onymous to him, until the Navy convinced him that it had 
something to offer, too. Liking what he saw, Smitty 
decided, after eighteen months, to make a career of it. 
One day Plebe Summer, his wife introduced him to la- 
crosse, and he's been at it ever since, stick in hand the 
year around. Despite his customary post-exam howls 
about bilging, Pecos was easy to get along with, and his 
complaints about academics were always taken with a 
grain of salt. Although still a faithful Texan, Smitty has 
acquired the Blue and Gold— sincere in his chosen pro- 
fession, he will do the job.

Koberl £. Smith 

KUTZTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA 

Smitty joined us after fifteen months in the Army, where 
he had attended Penn State and N. Y. U., as well as 
infantry duty. Here he kept up his varied interests, earn- 
ing numerals for plebe lacrosse, and playing company 
soccer and cross-country. As well as engaging in these 
sports, he took interest in all by reporting for the Public 
Relations Committee. Having sung in his high school 
glee club and operettas, he naturally joined the Glee 
Club here, and will never be forgotten as one of the 
cuties in the Musical Club Show "Operations Pinafive." 
For relaxation from his activities, Smitty had special inter- 
ests ranging from good pipes to trim, light planes. He 
stood undecided as to what part of the service to enter, 
but we feel confident of his success, for with Bob it 
seems a tradition that he succeeds. 



n<pbvrl Hi. Smith 

LAKE GROVE, OREGON 

Smitty came right out of the hills in that June of 1945. 
He was just finishing a year in V-12 in Montana when 
his chance came, but he remained ever ready to go 
back to the west. A year of prep school in California 
and the year in V-12 in Montana gave him just the 
start he needed to make the academics easy going. 
Quiet and somewhat aloof, Smitty nevertheless made 
many friends with his sharp humor and friendly smile. 
His were the quiet sports, squash, sailing and especially 
skiing. Whenever there was a hop, he was always the 
one to enjoy it with a very fine drag. Smitty's easy 
going ways and calm, logical approach to life seem 
to fit in very well with his plans to be a submariner. He 
should have very little trouble becoming a fine officer. 



Qewald I. Smith 

CORSICANA, TEXAS 

It took a tour of duty in the Army and a lot of long 
marches to convince Jerry that the Navy was the place 
for him. To the dismay of his classmates, he had done 
a very thorough job of preparation at Texas A&M, 
Louisiana State, and West Virginia. His time here was 
divided among taking long rows on the river with the 
varsity crew, championing the company in sports, hunt- 
ing the ever elusive fourth for bridge, reading the 
Saturday Evening Post, and diligently proving that "only 
fools and first classmen fall in love." More than one of 
his beautiful drags has no doubt wished he hadn't 
proved it himself. When Jerry trades in his yawl for 
one of those new battlewagons, his love of the sea and 
unlimited ability will carry him far.

Cart HI. Staincckcr 

READING, PENNSYLVANIA 

Carl came to us from the famous Pennsylvania Dutch 
country via the Navy, where he was better known as 
"Doc." He reached the rate of Pharmacist's Mate 2/c 
after serving two years in the fleet, and then discarded 
his scalpel and sponge and quickly mended his ways 
with his newly acquired friends. Any free weekend 
you'd not find him hanging around Annapolis; no sir, 
he always ran to Philly where someone of special in- 
terest attracted him. That's quite a jaunt to be making 
so frequently, but Carl seemed to think she was worth it. 
Between weekends he was more than likely carrying his 
heavy-set frame around the soccer field, or attempting 
to ace some hearty opponent on the tennis court. If sin- 
cerity and hard work mean anything, Carl will go a 
long, long way.

C. William Stoddard 

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

"Charlie" claimed Atlanta as his home, but we never 
knew it by his speech, as he was guaranteed to be 
absolutely free of any southern accent. Bill started his 
career as a wheel at high school, where he was valedic- 
torian and a star athlete. Here he continued wheeling 
with plebe and varsity baseball and numerous company 
sports, as well as in the Newman Club. His hobbies in- 
cluded tooting his trumpet, snapping pics, hunting, and 
fishing, thereby proving that this lad had talent in many 
fields, as well as good looks. The big mystery surround- 
ing him was how he got the word on the Miss America 
contest so quickly and regularly in the middle of the 
Atlantic on Youngster Cruise. Bill's term of enlistment as 
an aviation radioman put the bee on him, and it is 
in the aviation branch that he intends to continue his 
career.

BUFORD, GEORGIA 

Jim brought his smiling face and Georgia drawl into 
the Navy back in 1944 when he left Buford, where he 
had lettered in football, basketball, and track, been a 
member of the Beta Club, and worked on the paper, 
and had attended Emory Junior College, majoring in 
engineering and lettering in basketball. After sixteen 
months in the Navy, where he had been a signalman 
striker, Jim came to the Academy, where he has not 
had much time for anything other than eating, sleeping, 
fighting the academic grind, and getting a little first 
hand dope on Texas from a Lone Star brunette. Jim will 
probably make the Navy a career if hunting and fish- 
ing don't keep him back in Georgia on leave someday. 
But keep an eye on him— he may be the next com- 
mandant of the Gooney-Gooney Islands.

BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA 

From the heart of movieland, with its sunshine and beau- 
tiful girls, Hal migrated to the Academy by way of 
U. C. L. A. and U. S. C. Though he was never an expert 
with slide rule and steam tables, his hard work placed 
him well up in the class. His spare time was well oc- 
cupied with sports, battalion football and track pre- 
dominating, and his editorial work on the staff of the 
LOG. To round out his activities, Hal dragged a series 
of eastern lovelies, but was finally landed by the girl 
back home, to whom he plans to become permanently 
allied shortly after graduation. Though broadminded in 
most situations, Hal has had one great gripe here— the 
Maryland weather, which he maintained, was as differ- 
ent from his home's as day from night. 



nvhvrt til Vitus 

RENO, NEVADA 

Bob is the pride and joy of that famous city of the 
Old West, Reno, and unquestionably one of the finest 
fellows '49 has to offer. In spite of previous experience 
with the strain of college back at the University of Ne- 
vada, he wasn't one of our "star" men, but there are 
few men in the halls of Bancroft with better ability to 
get along than smiling Bob. Although not a varsity 
thriller in any sport, Robert managed to keep that hand- 
some physique in good shape as a capable competitor 
in several intramural sports, including track, football, 
and even volleyball. And, when not developing those 
muscles, he could usually be found either propped up 
somewhere reading a book or hanging around the 
model shop. 



John M. ChaLhiMiia 

MELROSE, MASSACHUSETTS 

From out of the frost bound hills of New England, un- 
scathed by the battle of V-12, came the other half of 
Tinkham and Eaton, the E.D. kids. Although his V-12 
training was adequate preparation so that Tink always 
kept the academic perils reduced to a minimum, the fate- 
ful late bell caught him time and time again. His yankee 
blood and many letters from the truest girl a midship- 
man ever had kept him warm through the long Mary- 
land winters. When Tink got energy enough to leave 
his sack and work out, he usually wound up with a 
billiard cue in his hand. As to the future, it may be 
Naval Aviation, but who knows? The unexpected has 
always more or less been the rule with Johnny, and 
whatever happens he'll come through with a smile.

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA 

You may have heard of the fiery temper and straight- 
forwardness of a redhead, so just add a sparkling per- 
sonality to those qualities and you will have the outline 
of this well-known southern gentleman. Probably the 
only person that actually has Red for a real name, he 
lived up to his appellation in full tradition, and his 
warmth and high spirits always made everyone at ease 
when he was present. A better-than-average student, 
Bob never let the books get him down. He was always 
ready for a good bull session anytime or a quick rubber 
of bridge, but his favorite pastime was sailing yawls 
out on the high seas of the Severn and Chesapeake. 
During the winter, however, he could be found on a 
basketball court taking advantage of his height.

ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA 

Choo-choo came to Navy from Georgetown Prep, where 
he had copped most of the scholastic honors and 
cleaned up eleven letters in football, soccer, swimming, 
and baseball. He continued this activity at Severn 
Tech, winning laurels in plebe swimming, JV football, 
and varsity water polo. Academics never bothered 
Harry a bit— his formula for starring involved many hours 
spent on the sack. Vying for first place among his in- 
terests were dragging and eating, with the first having 
a slight edge. The only time he ever missed a dragging 
weekend was when he had the guard. Having been up 
to his neck in something or other during his entire stay 
at the Academy, Harry hopes to go completely under 
in the sub service when he gets that big thick stripe. 



BLOOMFIELD, NEW JERSEY 

Throughout his four years with us, Warren's first inter- 
est has been his academics, to which he has constantly 
devoted himself, with gratifying results. A firm believer, 
however, in the well-rounded man, he has given much 
time to outside activities, among which were the Quarter- 
deck Society, the German Club, the Glee Club, Ex- 
tracurricular Council, varsity water polo, and company 
and battalion sports. Far from a Red Mike, Voss has 
been a successful socialite, and, requiring only "beauty 
and a touch of intelligence," he has presented an end- 
less string of lovelies to the joys of a Navy weekend. 
His varied interests have provided a solid background 
for the career which he has planned in the Air Corps.

STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK 

"No, I am not a stamp collector. I am a Naval cover 
collector." Again and again Gene went through this 
routine, explaining the differences between stamp and 
cover collecting. Having arrived at the Academy after 
a year as a signalman, Gene had no adjustment prob- 
lems. He soon became "Wendell" to all, because of 
the phonetic similarity of his name with that of the late 
presidential aspirant. With no interest whatsoever for 
women, Wendell applied this well-saved time to read- 
ing, his covers, or at times, even to study, with the re- 
sult that he was always a source of information on any 
subject. Facts and figures were the fundamentals, and 
he always had them. Eugene will always be remembered 
for his exactness, and his ability to make any party 
livelier with his powerful vocal potentialities. 



£. Date Witmoih 

ENID, OKALHOMA 

From the wind swept plains of Oklahoma, Dale brought 
his personable good humor to Navy Tech. Although 
just out of high school, academics here didn't cause him 
to take any great strain and most of his evenings were 
occupied with writing letters to the OAO back home 
in Oklahoma. OAO in his case really meant One and 
Only, as was evidenced by the fact that he spent most 
of his weekends on the sack, sleeping or thinking of the 
day he would graduate and be married. For recrea- 
tion big Dale took naturally to such sports as crew, 
basketball, and football, giving basketball the majority 
of his time. Not certain as yet just which branch of the 
Navy he would like the best, Dale will be welcomed 
gladly by all, whatever his choice. 



John §i. <Watkw 

FAYETTE, MISSOURI 

While at Central College, John exhausted most of 
Fayette's opportunities, for, although an active partici- 
pant in student government, he preferred the literary 
field, being included in the 1944-45 edition of "Whose 
Who in American Colleges and Universities" for his work 
in editing the "Central Collegian." Turning to greener 
pastures, John came to Navy, where he is probably 
best remembered as the Max Schuleman of USNA, in 
honor of his writing for the LOG. He also served on the 
Hop Committee, arranging our Ring Dance, wrote in- 
numerable humorous skits and turned in creditable per- 
formances on the track. Wherever we may wander in 
the Fleet, we'll be apt to find John praising Benchley, 
his idol, admiring a handy blonde, or inhaling a beer. 
Whatever pursuit you may find him, he'll be making a 
success of it.

CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND 

New London had two claims to fame— the sub school 
and Rollo. A Navy junior, he found Plebe Summer no 
trouble after Admiral Farragut Academy, Camp Peary, 
and NAPS. His fondness for the sea was embodied in 
his interest in sailing, and when he wasn't out on the 
dinghy float, he could usually be found working on one 
of the yawls. There was one sailing whaleboat drill, 
however, that won't be forgotten for a while. His great- 
est pleasures in life came at liberty call and "Knock off 
work," but cruises rewarded him with the material they 
gave him for the sea stories he would spin about Guan- 
tanamo or Weymouth. Around here, he was a drag- 
ging fool. When the hop schedule came out, he would 
start planning his campaign for the coming season. 






COLUMBUS, OHIO 

A philosopher, well known for his proverbs, apropos or 
no, a Utopian, and an idealist are three terms that 
characterize Wolf well, but even though he was a strong 
proponent of how things should be, he never let his 
ideas replace realities. Although Plebe Steam was al- 
most his downfall, Wolf gained momentum so that he 
became a contender for stars in that subject, and ac- 
cumulated gravy in others. Plebe Year he tried wres- 
tling, but in later years he usually stayed with the 
radiator, save for an occasional table tennis meet. 
Wolf was always ready to drag blind, and, although he 
had his ups and downs, his philosophic attitude of "like 
streetcars, there's another along in ten minutes" kept 
him from entangling alliances with any one femme. 



George (P. (Wood 

TAMPA, FLORIDA 

George came to the Academy from the orange groves 
of Florida and took great pride in praising his native 
state. A very good student, "Jeep" found that aca- 
demics required very little strain. A constant participant 
in bull sessions, George bubbled over, whether the topic 
was sports, women, or chow. Although very active in 
sports in high school, a knee injury received during 
Plebe Year hindered his endeavors in that vein. His 
inability to take part did not dampen his love for good 
sports events and his smiling face was seldom absent 
from one. His friendliness and winning personality, 
coupled with his southern drawl, have won him many 
friends among his classmates. His future is a promise 
of happiness and good luck.

MURPHYSBORO, ILLINOIS 

Bill came to us from the rolling hills of southern Illinois 
via the mechanized cavalry. "The Colonel" wasn't really 
lazy but the sack was far from the least of his desires. 
Finding the academic going rough in his Plebe Year, he 
staged a determined rally and made good in succeed- 
ing years. Engineering subjects were his delight while 
he found Bull a constant nemesis. His pleasing person- 
ality made him a favorite with the ladies as well as 
classmates, and although he was not a dragging fiend, 
he could be found occasionally escorting pretty young 
damsels on the weekends. Possessing athletic ability as 
well as a fine monotone singing voice, he helped make 
things pleasant wherever he went. His amiable ways, 
natural ability, and determination will assure him a suc- 
cessful career.

MOUNT HOLLY, NEW JERSEY 

To hear him talk you would think Herm is the ladies' 
man, but actually he is just the opposite. During his stay 
here at Severn Tech, Herman was an active member of 
Ray Swartz's gang— the muscular boys who practice the 
scissors and half-nelson each night during the Winter 
in the loft of MacDonough Hall. When he wasn't wres- 
tling, he spent most of his time figuring out ways to 
beat the system and struggling with academics. The rest 
of the time he lifted weights, read physical culture maga- 
zines, and listened to James Melton. "Bumps' " musical 
tastes were not confined to the classical though; just 
give him the "Jersey Bounce" and watch him go. And 
wherever he does go, he'll always add some spark to 
the party.

TYLER, TEXAS 

Curious to see how the other half lives, this tall, blonde, 
suave emissary from America's Lone Star Republic mi- 
grated to Navy Tech, leaving behind the "most beau- 
tiful women in the world." Al quickly made many friends 
throughout the Brigade. He was ever-present at the 
traditional evening round of bridge or the inevitable 
post-football game rendezvous, and his dry wit and 
subtle humor, coupled with the polish of the gentle- 
man, have won for him the respect of all who know 
him. With the logical mind of the intellectual, he was 
never troubled by academic difficulties. Al hopes to 
earn his wings, and if we can judge by past perform- 
ance, we are sure that success, good will, and a multi- 
tude of friends will follow his steps through the years.

GREAT NECK, NEW YORK 

Emile entered the Academy after spending a year at 
Yale, where he had been a swimmer and a varsity track 
man. His good nature and ever-ready smile gained him 
many friends from the start, and later helped him win 
his OAO, with whom he could be seen almost every 
weekend. Ame spent his afternoons working out with 
either the varsity football squad or the track team, where 
he was a good dash man, but reached his greatest 
heights as a pole vaulter. As chairman of our Class Ring 
Committee and business manager of the Christmas Card 
Committee, he was deserving of much of the credit for 
the efficient management of the production of our class 
rings and Christmas cards. No matter where he goes, 
Ame will always do well.

CHILLICOTHE, OHIO 

Bill was born and reared in the Province of Quebec, 
thus becoming, to the best of our knowledge, the first 
midshipman to have had Canadian citizenship. After 
high school in Shawinigan Falls, he attended Stevens Tech 
for two years, where he became a BOFI. He reached 
the shores of the Severn via a fleet appointment, hav- 
ing served for two and one-half years in the Navy as 
an AET 3/c. Academically he lacked very little, and 
trees and bushes were almost unknown to the Canadian 
Crusher. Bill's athletic interests were centered on three 
things— the sabre, soccer, and his sack. He did O.K. in 
all three— probably from having gained invaluable ex- 
perience as a bushwacker in his younger days. You can 
always count on Bako for one more story, and he laughs 
harder at jokes than any two men. 




CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA 

Brock came to Navy well prepared by a year at the 
University of North Carolina. He always had time to 
write letters or loaf during study hours, and frequently 
didn't study for a class till it was over. Sports were not 
his star subjects, so he preferred spending his time in 
such activities as the Mechanical Engineering Club, the 
Math Club, and the Spanish Club. In the Foreign Lan- 
guages Club he got the sack as treasurer and was con- 
tinually running after one of the officer representa- 
tives to get some check or statement signed. After we 
got our radios, he enjoyed the opera and the Phil- 
harmonic. His even temper and good nature made him 
well liked by his associates, and wherever he goes, he 
should have smooth sailing. 





Joseph J. ffiarvow 

LOUISBURG, NORTH CAROLINA 

At an early age, Joe decided to follow in his brother's 
footsteps by making the Academy his alma mater. In 
Mills High School, he had made a name for himself 
as president of his class and in journalistic and athletic 
lines. After high school, Joe majored in chemical engi- 
neering at North Carolina State College, and became 
one of the stellar members of Pi Kappa Alpha. Through- 
out he was developing that game of golf that interested 
us so much here, for he early became one of the main- 
stays of Navy's golf team, and wore the coveted N * on 
his sweater from Plebe Year on. J 2 intends to make 
the Navy his career and join his brother in the air corps. 
His southern accent, contagious laugh, and vitality have 
fascinated us all. Admiral Barrow? Sure, we knew him 
when he was a midshipman flying N3N's.

ALEXANDRIA, MINNESOTA 

Red took life quite seriously, and always got as much 
out of it as possible. Aside from his favorite diversion, 
dragging, he concentrated on academics, but the Red 
Dog also found time to play the sax in the Pit Orchestra, 
the 49ers Dance Band, and the Musical Club Shows. 
With his natural athletic ability, drive, and stamina, he 
has been a consistent standout on the company soccer 
and basketball teams. These activities, however, didn't 
make up to him for the fact that he has been away from 
home ever since enlisting in the Navy, and probably he 
will never be happy until he settles down in a home of 
his own. Red has the sense of humor, determination, and 
sincerity to succeed in anything, and we wish him the 
success he deserves.

Marry £. ffiawmgart&n* Jr. 

OWENSBORO, KENTUCKY 

This son of the Blue Grass Country made his way to 
us after a stretch in the Army as an aviation cadet, 
college at Montana State, St. Louis University, and 
Tulane, and a tour at NAPS. His likable nature and 
willingness to help anyone, regardless of their troubles, 
made his room a mecca for the less savoir members 
of our clan. A natural at basketball, Harry was the 
mainstay of our championship team, in addition to 
giving fieldball and soccer a nod. Not to be outdone 
in other fields, he was always ready for a dragging 
weekend. Never one to let our four year fight disturb 
him in the least, Harry, with his mastery of any task 
he tackled, has won the admiration of all who have 
made his acquaintance. 



Chartes J. ffiawmman* Jr. 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

This son of the Quaker City buzzed into Annapolis as 
a salty airdale with a tour of duty in the ETO behind 
him. Being by nature a prankster, C.J. became well 
known long before Plebe Summer was over. During fall 
and spring, Charlie came into his own on the gridiron 
as a fullback who really loved the game, and during 
the Dark Ages he could be found taking a few pointers 
in boxing from our famed Spike Webb. Charlie always 
claimed that those blonde locks made him irresistible to 
the fairer sex, a fact we can hardly doubt because he 
was always dragging, and was an inevitable member 
of the Flying Squadron. He leaves us now to return to 
the Naval Air Corps, but wewill always remember him 
with his ever present smile and love of a good laugh. 




244 



PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA 

Little Freddie came to Navy with a head full of athletics 
and a huge injection of Blue and Gold. He found that 
his size didn't permit him to take such an active part 
in sports as he would have liked and as he had done 
in high school and on the sandlots of the Smokey City, 
so he chose the next best thing and, when not hounded 
with LUCKY BAG work, wrote on the sports staff of the 
LOG. Blue and Gold first meant the University of Pitts- 
burgh, where he studied electrical engineering for a 
year, but it reached new and greater heights when he 
got the Navy bug. His pet peeve was studying and he 
loved his sack, but he had a knack for getting things 
done when he really wanted to do them. Some day, 
somehow, we'll hear from Fred— maybe in the Navy 
or maybe even in politics! 






ZiSflG 



SYRACUSE, NEW YORK 

Base came to us after one year at Syracuse University 
where he played and his father coached football. Big 
Base will always be remembered to Navy men, and all 
football fans, for his outstanding quarterbacking in our 
1946 game with Army. He has continued to live up to 
that excellent record as an N winner in baseball, with 
pitching his specialty. Base has been at sports a long 
time, having played football, baseball, and basketball 
at Fayetteville High and Staunton Military Academy. 
Not content with this alone, he was also a student 
council member, and in college took pride in his Phi 
Gamma Delta membership. Not so reg as the Exec 
Department would have liked, he served time for vari- 
ous offenses, and joined the wearers of the "Black N" 
on Youngster Cruise. 



JEWELL, KANSAS 

Jim became a midshipman as an honor graduate of 
Wentworth Military Academy, and his academic achieve- 
ments here have been in keeping with this distinction. 
Who can forget the discomfiture of the engineering 
chiefs who sought to "put the middies in their place," 
and picked Bimbo as the man to quiz? He was very ac- 
tive in athletics, particularly football and track, working 
his way up from JV to varsity football, and lettering in 
varsity track, where his specialty was the shot-put. 
Bimbo's home state was Kansas, whence the Jewell 
County "gouge" appeared weekly, and his early life 
on the farm developed his resourcefulness and friend- 
liness to a high degree. Although he has fine qualifica- 
tions for a Naval Officer, the call of the country has 
always made the choice of a Navy life debatable 
for him.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Bernie really got around before joining us to fight the 
battle of slide rules, steam labs, math books, and 
O.D/s. He began life in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and so- 
journed in the Big City long enough to attend Regis 
High and enlist in the Navy. As a gunner's mate first 
class on LST #336, he found more than his share of 
excitement in the North African, Sicilian, and Italian 
campaigns. A fleet appointment sent him to us via 
NAPS at Bainbridge. Bernie liked his athletics, and con- 
centrated mostly on baseball and football. He could 
always be found in the center of any fun-seeking bunch, 
especially in foreign ports, where his escapades were 
many. His cheery manner, ever-ready smile, and friend- 
ship will not soon be forgotten. 



KNOX, INDIANA 

Mike came to the Academy by a devious path, involving 
short stays at Purdue, Kentucky, and Cornell Universi- 
ties, plus service in the cavalry and as a cadet in the 
A.A.F. His plans for the future include marriage soon 
after graduation and a career in the Navy Air Corps. 
Mike's first taste of sailing came Plebe Summer, and he 
developed an insatiable appetite for it. Every fall and 
spring he spent most of his time in one of the yawls, 
either racing or "just sailing around." In his spare mo- 
ments he also competed in company gym, fieldball, and 
volleyball. A Mason, Mike was a charter member of 
the Mechanical Engineering Club, and a member of the 
American Society of Mechanical Engineers. 



John J. <tn. l>4>M*\<nn 

EL DORADO, ARKANSAS 

John made his way to Severn's shores by way of River- 
side Military Academy, the University of the South, and 
a stretch as a Naval Aviation Cadet. His knack for being 
the life of the party, regardless of where he was, has 
won him a host of friends. He managed to give the 
academics a little time, favoring the latest best seller 
instead. With his heavy build and his desire to give and 
take, he was a natural for the rough and tumble sports 
such as lacrosse, football, soccer, pushball, and field- 
ball. At times, Johnny seemed to be a magnet for D.O's. 
Although an ardent admirer of the fairer sex, we have 
yet to see any young lady lead him too far astray. 
We will always remember his ability to find something 
humorous about almost any situation. 





246 



MINERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA 

Gunner came to us after a stretch in Uncle Sam's Navy. 
This Pennsylvania kid was born with an especially good 
nature, evidenced in our four years here at Bagdad-on- 
the-Severn by the fact that he always managed to 
laugh at our hardships. Guns always chose one of the 
contact sports and invariably made a fine showing— 
whenever the going got a little rough it was mighty nice 
to see the Gunner on our team. We could not forget, 
even if we tried, that salty cap, the eternal smile, and 
his daily joke which made our life a little more bear- 
able. Ed was always a fanatic on flying and had al- 
ready acquired his private pilot's license when he joined 
us. He hopes to make the Naval Air Corps his career, 
seeking to show his partiality to sleep and good food. 



HOUSTON, TEXAS 

Bruce came to Navy and quietly took his place in our 
ranks without joining in the melee, pursuing the com- 
mon goal which to attain we all had to leave astern 
many shoals. As a true Texan, he always wore a smile 
but lived in an independent spirit. The military side of 
life here came much easier than did the academic side 
for Bruce, for he could formulate his own ideas better 
than remember those of someone else. Most of us found 
a lot of enjoyment on the beaches, but, like a real sailor, 
he could find true contentment only with the salt air 
blowing in his face. Trying to stick the other guy with 
his infernal epee occupied many of his winter evenings 
and also prevented him from putting on too much of 
that old flab.

WINSTON-SALEM, NORTH CAROLINA 

Everything from model planes to the latest jet fighter 
looked so good to Gerry that he was definitely set on 
a career in Naval Aviation. After graduating from high 
school with a track letter, he earned letters in cross 
country and track at North Carolina State, where he 
studied aeronautical engineering for three terms. There 
he was chosen for the Lambda Chi and Theta Tau fra- 
ternities and the student council. He earned plebe nu- 
merals in track, gymnastics, and cross country, and later 
held down harrier running and managerial spots. Our 
sailing drills captured him to such an extent that he 
worked for and won both his handler and yawl com- 
mand qualifications Youngster Summer, serving as Rear 
Commodore of the Boat Club First Class Year.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA 

Out of the wild blue yonder comes our next subject, 
with a year and a half of service as an aviation cadet 
behind him. A native of Louisiana, Dee attended La. 
Tech, where he majored in civil engineering and spent 
most of his time at the Kappa Sig house. We 
attributed part of his success to previous college experi- 
ence, but the greater share to his happy-go-lucky out- 
look. Attired in an Army B-robe and a pair of tan 
loafers. Dee was a common sight clip-clopping between 
rooms during evening study hour. A confirmed member 
of the radiator squad, our rebel friend nevertheless ven- 
tured out of his room for company sports. Sooner or 
later most of us will run into Dee again, and when we 
see his non-reg cap, we will know that there is plenty 
of fun dead ahead.

CLARK'S GREEN, PENNSYLVANIA 

Bill was the boy wonder of '49 who came to Navy di- 
rectly from high school and literally ran us ragged by 
standing so high in his studies. A Navy Junior who 
finally settled down near the coal fields of Scranton, 
he had his mind set on the line Navy and with his 
ability and determination he should go far. All his 
honors in high school and at the Academy never took 
his mind off the opposite sex, however, nor did it spoil 
his enormous appetite. Though fond of golf, tennis, and 
soccer, Bill devoted his long, lanky body to fencing, 
winning his letter and an Intercollegiate Championship, 
as well as being team captain First Class Year. Of all 
his awards the insignia of which he was proudest, 
though, was that of a Navy Jr. 



Qewald ML l*M,h 

ROCKWELL CITY, IOWA 

When a stentorian "Why don't you girls rent a room?" 
was heard above the roar in the wardroom mess, every- 
one knew that Burk the peacemaker was at work, for 
Jerry had an aversion to the fruitless arguments that 
midshipmen were prone to engage in. His unhappy "I 
wish I were back in Drooling-on-the-Lapel, Iowa, where 
the skies are not cloudy all day" was a sign that his 
daily letter from the girl back home was slow in ar- 
riving. He never wavered from the straight and narrow 
path of an OAO man! Jerry spent a year as an aviation 
ordnanceman, where he spent his spare time repairing 
and using an assortment of saxophones and clarinets, 
rather than machine guns and torpedos, before coming 
to Navy.

BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY 

Four months after Doc had finished his work at Stevens 
Tech in the V-12, he found himself at the bottom again 
enjoying a Plebe Year in the old Fourth. As well as an 
ability to take academics with no strain, D. O. brought 
with him an interest in singing which he put to good 
use as a member of the choir and an interest in shooting 
which he used with the varsity rifle team. Doc was also 
a member of the batt lacrosse team, and his experience 
from batt swimming proved rather useful during am- 
phibs when he was washed overboard from an LCM. 
Never content with the routine of humdrum existence, 
Dave will seek something out of the ordinary after 
graduation, perhaps aviation or subs. 






ffirw£e ffl. Carpenter 

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Bruce was one of Newton's contributions to Navy, and 
he held up his hometown academic standards by star- 
ring. "Ring's" accomplishments here were varied. He 
served as Secretary of the Stamp Club for two years, 
as LUCKY BAG representative for the company, and on 
various inconsequential football, soccer, pushball, and 
fleldball teams. Noteworthy among Nuclear's records 
are the innumerable Wardroom Mess tables whose 
undersides bear his initials. Youngster cruise found Ring 
in Colon, Panama, purchasing the ring that was to be 
the memorable source of his nickname. Broad shoulders 
were an attribute that aided Ring to bear the burdens 
of Academy life, as well as the pleasures of the stars 
and bars he earned. To Bruce we owed a vote of 
thanks for the humor his doings brought to break up 
the routine.

CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI 

Forsaking the land of wandering porticoes, mint juleps, 
and gorgeous young ladies, Andy braved the Yankee 
cold to come to Navy. Although he was forewarned, he 
was not exactly prepared for what he found and soon 
he and the "system" had a clash, but, as usual, Navy 
soon brought him in line. With the end of Plebe Summer 
the "Bo" (so named for a famous Senator) soon hit his 
stride. He was a year-round athlete with football, wres- 
tling, and golf all claiming a share of his time, but his 
main calling and interest was dragging each weekend. 
Andy's humor has helped to brighten our stay here 
and he leaves the Academy well known by his class- 
mates as a confident, proficient man with a bright smile 
and a friendly word for everyone.

PULLMAN, WASHINGTON 

Though he has lived there most all of his life, Ed was 
not destined for a Pullman birth. He was born in Mos- 
cow—Idaho, that is— but moved to Pullman (by coach) 
at the tender age of ten days, where his presence in- 
creased the population of that fair city a considerable 
percentage. While with the Navy he attended Gonzaga 
University and the University of New Mexico, where he 
became a Sigma Chi. With camera in hand and chin 
patched after a dragging shave, he always enjoyed the 
weekends at Navy, each with its Mary Hayworth twist. 
Number two on his list of favorite pastimes were his 
pugilistic pursuits in McDonough Hall with his punching 
bag opponent. Ed was never one to be excited by the 
do-it-on-the-run routine of Academy life, and his quiet 
efficiency and dogged persistence will always bring him 
out on top. 



NEW EAGLE, PENNSYLVANIA 

"Chick" came to us as one of the nicest camouflage jobs 
the Navy has ever seen, for hiding behind all that 
muscle and brawn was one of the keenest minds in the 
class. It didn't take long for the proper authorities to 
recognize this fellow's potentialities, and soon after 
enlisting in the Navy, he was made a Fleet appointee. 
Al has shown us his versatility as an athlete by playing 
JV, batt, and touch football, softball, and by becoming 
the pride of his company after giving a K-det an injec- 
tion of Blue and Gold leather in a boxing smoker on 
Amphibs. His fighting spirit and quickness at diagnosing 
the opponent's next move would make him a great ad- 
dition to the Fleet, but Chick's 10/20 eyes have made 
other plans. Whatever field he turns to, we know that 
Chick will plunge to the top. 



John (P. Cawiwwiqhl 

ELLWOOD CITY, PENNSYLVANIA 

Four years ago the Dartmouth Indians decided to send 
one of their toughest scouts into Techumseh's camp, and, 
amidst the sighing of feminine hearts, Jack came and 
quickly proved the superiority of his tribe. After letter- 
ing in football and basketball and winning scholastic 
awards in high school, Jack went north for a year, but 
decided southern pastures looked greener, and so an- 
swered Buck Walsh's prayer. In the years to come, Jack 
can show his grandchildren that big N with the slanted 
oar, and tell them how he stroked the Navy crew to 
victory over the toughest competition in the land at 
Poughkeepsie. You have made many friends here, Jack, 
and in the future, when the going gets tough, we'll 
depend on you to take up the stroke again, and come 
out on top, as you have in the past.

Samuel ./%. Chessman 

SALEM, OHIO 

Sam, who had more hair on his back than on his head, 
was the possessor of a very sly and disarming smile. 
He started every new year with the statement "Well, this 
year is going to be different"— and he always ended up 
doing the same things, starring, dragging, and being 
run by all his tablemates. Having been a rat at VMI for 
a year and having spent three more at Case School of 
Applied Science, majoring in electrical engineering and 
OKM 7 . Sam came to the Academy very well equipped to 
battle with the academics. His activities in the field of 
sports included boxing during Plebe Summer and 
Youngster Cruise, and lacrosse, bowling, and batt foot- 
ball. Sam had a very idealistic outlook and was one who 
practiced the Golden Rule.

SOUTH GATE, CALIFORNIA 

A native of sunny South Gate, California, Ray was an 
unusual person in that he didn't have to mention the 
weather when discussing his home state. Instead he 
could talk about Hollywood and the movie personali- 
ties with whom he has worked. After two years in the 
Navy V-5 and V-12 programs, Ray entered the Acad- 
emy. Although his chief interest lay in photographing 
everything from drags to sports contests for the LOG, 
LUCKY BAG and Trident Calendar, he did not neglect 
other forms of activity. He loved yawl sailing and was 
also a member of the dinghy team. His flare for social 
entertainments found expression in the many company 
parties he promoted. With Naval Aviation as his goal, 
Ray is assured success by his magnetic personality and 
his adaptability.

EXETER, NEW HAMPSHIRE 

After graduation from Phillips Exeter Academy, Louie 
hit the V-12 program for all it was worth for four 
semesters at Middlebury College, acquiring not only a 
thorough knowledge of Navy subjects, but also meeting 
the girl who would become Mrs. Churchill come June, 
1949. Having played a sterling hot corner on the 
Middlebury baseball team, Lou brought his ability to 
the plebe team. Youngster Year saw him giving up base- 
ball for the gentleman's game of galf, and, although he 
improved steadily, the woods and water holes claimed 
their share of his golf balls. Academics proved no strain 
for our silent friend, and he starred easily. In '49's grad- 
uation, the Fleet and Patsy are getting a good man, and 
Ens. Lou is getting what he has been working for the 
past four years.

(Robert S. Clark 

SALISBURY, MARYLAND 

Coming from Maryland's Eastern Shore, Bob found it 
galling Plebe Year to recite, "How cold it is in Mary- 
land," for, as far as he was concerned, a warm sun 
always shines down on his home state. Because of his 
experience at college and as an Aviation Cadet and 
his happy, easy-going manner, he was never worried 
by either academics or the vicissitudes of Academy life. 
His chief interests included soccer, his O.A.O., and music 
—he had a mean shower room tenor with which he 
often serenaded us. His first interest, however, is flying. 
He plans to follow in the footsteps of his brother who 
graduated from the Academy in the Class of '38 and 
later won his Navy wings. With his ability and cheerful 
personality, Bob is sure to fulfill our hopes and his for 
a successful and happy future.

CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND 

The Navy was more than a future for "Reddy" Cobb, 
Maryland's contribution to the Navy Junior Club; it was 
also his past and life-blood. He attacked all comments 
about his three names with tales of the exploits of the 
destroyers which carried the names Warrington and 
Crane. After prep school at Severn and two terms at 
Georgetown, Red came into the Academy well up on 
his math and sciences, so he found little trouble in 
winning his stars. At Severn he played tennis, football, 
and lacrosse, but here he concentrated on the latter, 
spending the better part of the year chasing a ball 
with the rest of the "ham V eggers." The redhead's 
greatest accomplishment was giving up smoking, after 
years as our number one bummer. 



Dawid £. CluM 

LAWRENCE, L. I., NEW YORK 

The tall, blonde, quiet "Clu" has probably spent the 
greatest part of his life tacking in and out of half the 
bays and inlets in the country pursuing his number one 
interest, sailing. Dave first proved his prowess as a sailor 
when he captured a national sailing title while still in 
his teens. Here at the Academy, he became captain of 
the sailing team during his Second Class Year, and each 
spring and fall found him crammed into a "dink" win- 
ning races for the BJue and Gold, while the winters were 
taken up with the varsity rifle team. In addition to his 
sailing firsts, he had the honor of being the first "and 
only" midshipman to "hit the drink" during Second Class 
Carrier Cruise. Dave is the typical reserved individual 
who accomplishes his job in a thorough manner with- 
out fanfare.

BLOUNTVILLE, TENNESSEE 

There were four things that "Rapid Robert" held dear— 
his home in East Tennessee, gracious living, beautiful 
music, and brunettes. Bob fought the academics to a 
draw and even starred in Dago. It was a pleasure to 
look at the pictures of beautiful girls on his locker, and, 
if requested, he would always fix up his friends with 
a drag. His athletic activities were limited to punching 
the bag or lifting weights in MacDonough Hall, for his 
main interest was Dago, and on the cruises he tried, 
with varying successes, to learn the languages of the 
countries visited. Since he was a third generation Navy 
Junior, Bob always intended to make the Navy a ca- 
reer. He will be content to stay on surface vessels 
and earn his promotions the hard way.

Stanley C. Counts 

WICHITA, KANSAS 

Though born in Oklahoma, Katie was deported to 
Kansas at a tender age. At Wichita and Washburn 
Universities he received excellent training for the rigors 
of Academy life, one aspect of that training being the 
subject of his latest essay, "How to Star Without Study- 
ing." The ease with which he overcame the academic 
schedule left him plenty of time to engage in more 
pleasant activities among which were dragging numer- 
ous queens and playing a mean game of bridge. 
Joules unexpended in steam lab were used in company 
soccer, basketball, and football, and his prowess in 
those fields could be proved by the many numerals on 
his B-robe. An effervescent spirit of congeniality com- 
bined with a sense of responsibility, makes him a fine 
friend and a good prospect for the Fleet. 



Sidney XI C©;r 

INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS 

The Navy and Sid first became acquainted when he 
entered the Naval Aviation flight training program, and, 
although he came to the Academy before he won those 
wings, he still extolled the merits of that branch of the 
service, and planned to continue in the Air Corps. Al- 
though his first love was always flying, Sid spent most 
of his weekends dragging, though as yet no girl has 
become his O.A.O. A solid, cheerful person, he plugged 
away at every given job, no matter how distasteful it 
might have been to him, and did his best, which was 
always more than sufficient. Sid will long be remembered 
by all those who knew him, not only for his resourceful- 
ness and friendly personality, but because to him 
friendship was something much higher than just a fair 
weather association.

NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS 

"Navy Ted" was just about the saltiest mid'n who ever 
hit the Brigade. It is still not generally realized that 
"Time Afloat" put in twenty months of "sea duty" 
aboard the "U.S.S. Hahvud" V-12 unit and his local 
Sea Scout ship. Curt's favorite sport was football, in 
which he won his N— at Norwood High, and he has 
played on the JV, batt, and company teams here. One 
of the "lace Curtin" Irish, T. A. was always ready to 
bait rebels or champion the "land of the bean and 
the cod" and the "auld sod." Newman Club presi- 
dent, he was appropriately enough elected on St. Pat- 
rick's Day. Next to the Navy, T. A.'s greatest interest 
was collecting— not only did he save stamps, he saved 
everything— right on down to the skivvy shirts and steam- 
ing shoes for which he was justly famous. 



Dwsey <W. fh,m<>t 

OXFORD, NORTH CAROLINA 

Coming to us by way of the Navy and Duke University, 
Dan brought many pleasant moments to all of us who 
knew him with his good nature and his inimitable moun- 
tain tunes! Playing plebe and varsity baseball and 
varsity sub squad, Dan's fighting spirit was manifested 
by his rebel yells. Extending reciprocity into the class- 
room, he was always willing to enlighten his professors 
on the art of tobacco cultivation and manufacture. A 
man of firm convictions, he has long advocated a good 
five-cent cigar as a cure to all midshipman troubles. 
Not adverse to a small celebration from time to time, he 
placed great faith in Mountain Dew as a cure for any- 
thing from baldness to fallen arches. Dan will long be 
remembered as a guy who loves life, laughter, and 
comradeship. 



Edgar M. Crw£s& 9 Jr. 

CORONADO, CALIFORNIA 

Muscles, brains, and amiability were combined in Batt 
to produce a thoroughly likeable person. A Navy jun- 
ior of high standing, he attended schools in Puerto Rico, 
California, and New Mexico before entering Navy. 
Batt inherited his nickname and many of his good quali- 
ties from his father, who was also a credit to the in- 
stitution. He administered and received considerable 
punishment in football, boxing, and lacrosse, and car- 
ried home his share of laurels in the aforementioned 
sports. Possessed of an insurpassable sense of humor 
and a great force of character, he had great ability 
to make friends and influence people. In all he had a 
great deal of common sense and ability to see the real 
problems at hand. Success will be yours, Batt.

MINERAL WELLS, MISSISSIPPI 

After a twenty-five month vacation in the Fleet, the 
pride and joy of the Mississippi Delta decided to forsake 
King Cotton for a Naval career. It was not long before 
Joe became one of our favorite targets for running 
because of his excitable nature. His year at "Ole Miss" 
produced many fond memories of times gone by at the 
ATO house. The athletic look on life seems to have made 
no impression whatsoever on Jose, even though he 
succumbed to crew during Plebe Summer. Being one of 
those who have worked on the LUCKY BAG, Joe rates a 
"Well Done" for his labors on the staff. If one was 
ever in doubt as to social etiquette and the like, Jose 
was their man. We are not likely to forget his wife's 
utter disapproval of his precious classical record albums. 



William £. DuLo. Jr. 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA 

Bill arrived at Navy after a year at the University of 
Virginia, but found the academics here all that he had 
expected and probably even a little tougher. He liked 
the radiator squad best, but somehow managed to win 
his numerals on one of the company cross country 
teams. Plebe Year he joined the Glee Club and Or- 
chestra, and Youngster Year the Mechanical Engineer- 
ing Club and Spanish Club, as well as having the sack 
of company LOG representative that year, too. Bill 
was the explorer type when it came to the women, and 
though serious, industrious, and regulation, he could 
always have a good time. He expected the plebes to 
fall in line, but never required more of any of them 
than he was willing to do himself. 






Jatn&s £ m (Dwrhatm* Jr. 

ANCHORAGE, KENTUCKY 

With a basketball in one hand and a mint julep in the 
other, Jim dribbled his way into the Naval Academy 
from the hills of old Kentucky. Although an easy year 
as a Phi Delt at the University of Kentucky hardly pre- 
pared him for the many restrictions of Navy life, it did 
provide good experience in basketball that enabled 
him to rise to the varsity Youngster Year. That season he 
won an N-star and the chance to participate in the 
National Tournament in Madison Square Garden. Jim's 
athletic career did not impair his social life, however, 
and he was frequently seen with many a charming lass. 
Jim's plans for the future are incomplete, but his easy- 
going manner and amiable personality will ensure an 
enviable record.

William 9*. Jinlny, Jr. 

WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA 

Always a routine— Bill's colorful pantomines depicting 
various aspects of Academy life shed many a ray of 
light during the gloom of the Dark Ages. He was one of 
the many men in the class entering from the regular 
enlisted service via fleet appointment. A year at North 
Carolina State University plus his two years of naval 
enlisted service gave this Tarheel ample preparation for 
his tour of duty of USNA. He was one of the mainstays 
of the plebe track and during his last three years was 
number one on the varsity flying squadron. Although 
academics gave Bill trouble at times, he always man- 
aged to come out on the right side of 2.5. He is destined 
to become one of the Navy's hot pilots, where his ready 
smile and ready wit give him a good start. 



WOODLAWN, NEW YORK 

Bob came to the Academy after two years as a radio 
technician in the Navy. Never one to let studies worry 
him, he took the academics in stride and stood in the 
upper part of the class with a minimum of effort— os- 
tensibly. An active participant in company and bat- 
talion sports, he could always be counted on to join a 
game of football, basketball, or baseball, and was 
known far and wide for his ability as a goalie in com- 
pany soccer, or as a center in football games. Noted for 
his quick wit and gifted with all the attributes of a fugi- 
tive from the Emerald Isle, he was a more than welcome 
addition to any company. Bob was undecided as to 
what branch of the service will be his career, but if his 
record here is any indication, he will succeed in what- 
ever he picks. 



Iff 4>ti<ut §i. Gallon 

HUTCHINSON, MINNESOTA 

Why did Mert choose the Navy as a career? It was all 
the result of the adventurous spirit which started way 
back when he was a boy in school, for he was never 
content with the ordinary every day routine. So with his 
first formal education under his belt, Mert set out to 
buck the cold world. Of course it was the Navy, and 
has been ever since December 1941, with three years of 
war action spent in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Mediter- 
ranean on the U.S.S. Nevada, then NAPS at Bainbridge. 
Since his arrival, Mert has been spending the fall months 
patching up batt football injuries and those winter af- 
ternoons writing bills for -the LOG Magazine as Business 
Manager. With a steady eye in the air and the other 
roving the eligible field, Mert strikes out on the newest 
adventure of his life— being a Naval Officer.

Sydney £. 7ot#/#f o. ^r. 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

What better proof of a true sailor have we than the 
nautical activities of the versatile "Fos?" Even his con- 
tributions to varsity swimming and sailing showed a 
nautical trend. He has displayed further fitting inter- 
ests by participation in the Boat Club, the Engineering 
Club, the Camera Club, and membership in the Amer- 
ican Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. 
He hopes some day to design the ships in which the 
Navy sails. Hailing from New York, he was a con- 
firmed city boy and always astonished his classmates 
by his complete misknowledge of the rules of country 
life. But he also possessed a burning determination 
never to be set back by any amount of overwhelming 
odds. Surely there is a place in the Navy for so many 
attributes so well applied. 






(Richard ( Mt. (fwancis 

LYNBROOK, NEW YORK 

Dick came to us from the Marine Corps, as no one 
could contest, once having heard his Marine cadence 
resounding throughout his crack drill platoon during 
Plebe Summer. He proved his versatility by becoming 
an ardent member of the Boat Club as well as a terror 
in the wrestling loft. It was an official document with 
Dick's middle name on it that won him the title "Duke of 
Haudiomont," and he has been defending it ever since. 
The Duke would enter any argument with a reckless 
abandon, and if his opponents could not be convinced 
by his facts and wit, he would dig into his tremendous 
vocabulary and thoroughly confuse any disbelievers. 
The Duke wants to return to the Marine Corps upon 
graduation, and we can think of no better man to be 
waiting at the Far China Station to show us around 
on liberty. 



{ J. IttdlB'MMBt JvUjT€*€* 

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI 

He was known as Monk, Marve, and has answered to 
the O.D.'s "Hey You!" One of the older boys of the 
class, hitting up around a ripe old twenty-five when 
graduated, he was naturally one of our most suave 
operators with the ladies. On cruise if you saw a wide 
mouthful of white teeth surrounded by a chestnut sun- 
tan, it was Monk. Well versed in the wiles of the sea 
lawyers of old, he would even submit a statement on a 
"Shoes, shined properly, not!". Marv was a versatile 
athlete, having excelled in batt crew, football, tennis, 
and varsity extra duty. This son of the progressive 
state where the mule and Sears & Roebuck come into 
their own intends to stay in the Navy forever, as a pilot 
of our hottest jobs, trying to cut the lumps from cumulus 
clouds.

Malph III. Qhormley 

ROCHESTER, MINNESOTA 

Ralph blew in four years ago with a verbal barrage of 
Minnesota football, Shattuck School, and his thirteen 
days in boot camp. He immediately gained the dis- 
tinction of wearing the largest white hats in the old 
Seventh, as well as having the largest supply of old 
jokes. Plebe Year, no one finned out quite like the 
"Bird Dog," as he was tagged. Always the Bull slash 
of the company, he could invariably be counted on for 
the minutest details of English— or any other— history. 
Ralph divided his free hours among the rifle team, the 
LUCKY BAG, of which he was Biography Editor, the 
Glee Club, and Reef Points, filling out with company 
and battalion sports in season. We who lived with him 
for these four years will remember Ralph for his hon- 
esty, hard work, sincerity, and good fellowship. He 
has the qualities which make for success. 



Thomas <ttt. Gill 

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Tom's year of majoring in Bull at Fordham may have 
been responsible for his independence of thought, but 
the fact remains that he was considered the philosopher 
of the 19th. Never content with the superficial, he 
analyzed everyone and everything he met. Alley Oop's 
strong point might not have been a slip-stick race, but 
in practically every other type of contest he excelled. 
Tom was one of the best squash players the Academy 
has ever seen, and has also played varsity tennis and 
plebe football, and taken part in the Brigade Boxing 
tournament. An excellent chess player, he was a strong 
point for both the chess club and the chess team. Prob- 
ably because he kept to himself, few people really got 
to know him, but those who did couldn't help but like 
and respect his seriousness and sincerity. 



James J. Garibaldi 

YONKERS, NEW YORK 

"Long Jim" hails from Yonkers, which, he insisted, was 
the garden spot of the universe. He came to the Acad- 
emy from bell-bottoms, and, once here, took every- 
thing, academics included, with his long, easy stride 
and inimitable grin. A star athlete in high school, 
"Garry" has been a standout basketball player and 
track man here. During his last three years he con- 
centrated on track, where his churning legs have spelled 
many a victory for Navy in the 440. When not dragging 
his OAO, Jim spent his spare time dreaming of the 
happy married life which was scheduled to start soon 
after graduation. Although he is a bit undecided con- 
cerning his future, we who have known him these last 
four years feel sure that Jim's winning personality will 
insure him success wherever he goes. 





258 



BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

One could always be sure of a good word and a jovial 
smile from Roy, who was one of the better known and 
best liked fellows in the class. He took a keen interest 
in extra-curricular activities at the Academy, serving on 
the Brigade Activities Committee. Roy always gave his 
best in untiring effort and spirit. He was one of those 
naturals on the stage, which made him a success in the 
Musical Club Shows— he did not add too much to the 
musical aspect of any show, but was excellent in char- 
acter roles and stage planning. An avid sportsman, 
Roy took an interest in all phases of Academy athletics 
and played some good football besides. He had 
little trouble with academics. Brooklyn could well be 
proud of its formidable representative at the Academy. 



Joseph <H. €}oitn&w 

SALISBURY, MARYLAND 

Joe's first glance at this big world took place in Wheel- 
ing, West Virginia, but he eventually wound up as a 
native Marylander. After graduation from Wicomico 
High in Salisbury, "The Count", a Life Scout, sold his 
'34 Dodge and trekked to the U. of Maryland, where 
he was lured first by Sigma Chi and then by a Naval 
career. Without a doubt he was the most suave gent 
in these parts, but his French cuffs and fancy links 
caused him no end of trouble with the braid of Ban- 
croft. For the women, the little guy was an explorer, 
but dynamite! Joe's many likes included swimming, 
music, hunting, flying, and the drums which he 
played like Krupa. His popularity insured him success 
whatever way he went, even over the wall. We didn't 
worry about him, though, for Joe was the sort of a guy 
who just couldn't miss the mark. 






/%##»«<*#/ <H <f^oo«f«r«r<». Jr. 

LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA 

After Russ Goodacre got over his trouble with the Bull 
Department, he led a smooth easy-going life at the 
Academy, with quite a bit of fun thrown in. Instead of 
coming directly cross country from Laguna Beach in 
Sunland to Crabtown in Rainland, he took the long way, 
which included two years in the regular Navy as a TM 
3/c with stops at Oahu and Midway Islands. Russ had 
several encounters with the opposite sex these past cou- 
ple of years and after each one, he only reiterated to a 
greater extent his desire to remain a "Red Mike," and 
it looked as if he would stick to his word. We didn't 
question such an attitude here, but some of the fellows 
did take his status to be a result of that receding hair- 
line, which caused no end of two-way kidding.

READING, PENNSYLVANIA 

"Have some pretzels!" Yes, it was Jim speaking. A true 
Quaker, Jim indulged his tastes for pretzels, beer, en- 
gineering, and football for a year at Penn before cross- 
ing the Rubicon. His most regular habit, next to sleep- 
ing each study period, was his nightly pilgrimage to the 
mailbox with the day's tale of woe to his OAO. The 
profs always had a hard time baffling Jim, who in- 
tegrated, differentiated, and manipulated the slide rule 
with the best— the only course that aroused exclama- 
tions of ire from him was Youngster Steam, which he 
regarded as the curse of Navy. Every spring and fall, 
Jim demonstrated those qualities of speed and decep- 
tion that made him a varsity halfback on the football 
squad, and a terror to all opponents of the company 
football team in the winter. Jim has his course set for 
matrimony and carriers. 



READING, PENNSYLVANIA 

"Cleatcleaner," as he will be remembered in years to 
come, joined the Navy at the tender age of eighteen 
and, after two years spent in becoming a radio tech- 
nician 2/c, entered the Academy. His title "Cleat- 
cleaner" was earned by three years of managing and 
caring for the varsity football team. Although not ex- 
actly a football or scholastic "star," Bob succeeded in 
making a name for himself in both. "They can't do 
that to me" was his most common statement when he 
had one of his infrequent bad weeks and found him- 
self hanging from bush or tree. His foremost accom- 
plishment, however, he considered to be entering and 
leaving the Academy with the same OAO, and Joan 
has provided the main attraction in his life. Who's Joan? 
See R. W. about that. 



& c7>. €,<>h1Ihmiii. Jr. 

COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY 

Badly in need of a haircut, the "Goul" arrived at the 
Academy singing "Fight For Collingswood." He spent 
the first three years saying, "It won't be long now, a 
few more days and I'll be going home," and the last 
year going home. Although he has nothing against sea 
duty, he'd like to be assigned to a yard tug at the 
Philadelphia Navy Yard. While at the Academy, Frank 
spent most of his free time either in the water or on 
the water. He earned his N-star in swimming Youngster 
Year, and he devoted his spring afternoons to rowing 
up and down the Severn (with the crew, not the extra 
duty squad). After helping Kirk and Herm run the New 
Jersey embassy for two years, Goul moved in with the 
"Tiger," "Bo," and Jim saying, "Upper half of the class 
by '49 or-."

John £. €}w4*4>n<» 

ATLANTA, GEORGIA 

Johnny could often be found in the gym, arguing with 
a stop watch as a rope climber on the gym squad, his 
Southern drawl giving no indication of his usual rate of 
ascent. After graduation from high school in Atlanta, 
he chose Georgia Tech for further education, studying 
there for three years, and, as a student of aeronautical 
engineering, fulfilling a life long fascination for air- 
planes. When not building muscles in MacDonough, 
the man with the middle name salted his blood by sail- 
ing on the Chesapeake. Johnny, an infrequent dragger, 
could often be found in the role of "snake" at the hops, 
because he just hadn't been able to find his "Sweet- 
heart of Sigma Chi." 






^avid. XL fjunctict 

TULSA, OKLAHOMA 

Dave hailed from the Great Southwest— Tulsa and Kem- 
per Military Academy. Although he was far from a long 
hair, music was his field, and he proved a main cog in 
the Concert Band, serving in the capacity of Assistant 
Director. His performances on the flute have been out- 
standing, and it was often rumored that he had com- 
posed several unpublished concertos. Athletically built 
and well endowed with natural ability, Dave confined 
his attention to company and battalion sports. "Take 
Me Back To Tulsa, I'm Too Young To Marry" did not 
apply to him, for a pretty blonde Navy Junior captured 
both his heart and his ring. Dave, a Southern gentle- 
man of the first rank, will surely reach the same rank 
in his chosen Naval career. 



William S. Qnthwie 

PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA 

Bill came to the Naval Academy expounding on the 
merits of Florida and "How to catch alligators in one 
easy lesson." High school in his home town and a year 
at the University of Miami in the Navy V-12 program 
prepped him for his Academy life. Quiet and studious, 
Bill excelled in academics with ease, and found ample 
time for extra-curricular activities, among which were 
the choir and Glee Club. Very active in athletics, he 
was on the plebe and J. V. track teams, the varsity 
swimming, and the company soccer and football teams. 
When not engaged in the above activities, this long and 
lanky Floridian could usually be found puffing an odor- 
ous pipe and trying to browbeat his wives into listening 
to his low-brow jazz records.

Dale a. <H*wley 

RICHMOND, INDIANA 

Dale has always been interested in things that fly. As a 
boy he kept bees for a hobby. When he became a little 
older, he spent his afternoons at the Richmond airport 
learning to keep 'em flying. When Uncle Sam beckoned 
with a persuasive finger, Dale donned the Navy blue 
and shoved off for Espirito Santo in the steaming South- 
west Pacific. Despite initial setbacks in academics here, 
Dale's perseverance and never-say-die spirit brought 
him through the Academy in fine style. When not de- 
voting his time to Math and muscle homework, this 
Hoosier spent many hours lazily sailing the Chesapeake 
and delighting the ladies. His flashing smile and quiet 
congeniality made him always welcome at social gath- 
erings. Whatever his future calling. Dale is sure of 
success. 



Jwhsvn D. Mill 

BATH, MAINE 

Jack came to Navy Tech from the rocky coast of Maine, 
where, for two summers before he entered the Academy, 
he worked in the Bath shipyards helping to build de- 
stroyers for the Navy and increasing his interest in 
ships and the sea. During his afternoon recreation pe- 
riods here he set up props for the Masqueraders' pro- 
ductions, patronized the local opera houses, or beat his 
wives at handball. "J. D." spent most of his evening 
study hours writing letters to a certain girl back home 
and he used the remaining time to exercise his artistic 
ability. He is looking forward to a career in naval 
architecture— with his talent and his ability to learn 
something useful from any situation, Jack should go 
a long way. 



NORWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA 

Not even the rigors of Navy Tech could change Ted's 
amiable nature. That pleasant smile and affable per- 
sonality made him a welcome member of any gathering, 
be it a songfest, bridge game, or bull session. He was 
an accomplished musician, an efficient student, and a 
confirmed "sack artist," so his usual study position was 
horizontal. The ergs he stored up while in the sack were 
utilized in his weekly race against the clock— he was a 
regular member of the "Flying Squadron." His chief 
sport was company soccer and he was an outstanding 
goalie. This versatile Philadelphian has added much to 
make our stay at Navy as pleasant as possible. No 
matter where he goes, we are sure Ted will be able to 
take his assignments in stride just as he did at the 
Academy.

Xosffis £. €-1 //##/* toft 

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA 

Lev, as his friends knew him, was the Santa Monica 
Chamber of Commerce Branch Office at the Naval 
Academy. Hard work early put him in top billing as a 
scholar. Always, as he was gentlemanly genial, his 
friends were without number— as well, he was the Citrus 
King of these parts, podner. His prowess at tennis and 
all the ball-bouncing, racquet-swinging sports was no- 
table. Classic renditions of Brahms, the newest photo- 
graphic paraphernalia, and penning folios to exotic 
beauties below the Rio Grande occupied Lev's time 
chiefly, and, being adept at Spanish, he planned to 
retire to a coffee plantation in Ecuador at age thirty. 
If the deserving are rewarded with success, he will at- 
tain just that. 



BANGOR, MAINE 

You never could miss spotting Whit, the author of those 
fabulous "Jennison Stories," the effervescent character 
who just wasn't to be held down when the Maine "Stein 
Song" rang out. Having been soundly indoctrinated by 
the Army prior to prepping for the Navy, he was one 
of the few in our midst who held out to the end against 
that oft-derided naval terminology of "head," "deck," 
and "ladder"— Whit refuses to use anything but a flight 
of stairs on his climb to success. An ardent disciple of 
the no-strain school of living, Whit was an enthusiastic 
proponent of "combined operations," but only so far 
as the combining of eating and sleeping were con- 
cerned. The gal that Whit plans to marry on graduation 
can be sure she was chosen only after extensive re- 
search in the field by our "man about the corridors." 
May they always be happy! 






John M. J&pson 

MILTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

"Jep" to his classmates, his spare length and friendly 
personality made a fine combination. Early in the war 
Jep began his Naval career and served for two years 
through the various phases of the Naval Aviation train- 
ing program before settling down here. His service 
stood him in good stead, and, coupling these experi- 
ences with his remarkable store of common sense, he 
settled down to a steady pace through the four year 
academic obstacle course. His Massachusetts back- 
ground, with its long history of seafaring men, was no 
handicap when he went over to Hubbard Hall to join 
the ranks of the crew men, for he took to it with a will, 
and remained there throughout his four years. When 
it comes to graduation, Jep still has his old desire to 
fly for the Navy, and plans to wear the wings. As he 
himself might say, "All in good time; take it easy!"

John V, Joscphson 

DEER LODGE, MONTANA 

To make a long story short, Joe fell on his head while 
trying to ski at the age of four, and when awakened, 
he found himself making a slide rule do tricks in a 
steam lab at Navy. Quite a lot of time was expended, 
but Joe's wives finally convinced him that he had come 
to Navy via V. M. I., where he majored in electrical 
engineering and was awarded a varsity letter for his 
abilities on the basketball court. Joe stood high in his 
class with a minimum of studying, devoting most of his 
time to blondes, bull sessions and bridge. Numerals in 
plebe basketball and baseball, plus action on the com- 
pany soccer and batt swimming teams, attest to the ex- 
cellent form he had in the sports world. Joe's ready 
smile and pleasing personality make him a sure bet for 
tops in his chosen field. 



John (ftt. Johnson 9 Jw, 

ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA 

There was no one who took more pains to extol the 
glories of those West Virginia hills than Johnny. An 
avid basketall player, he ably supported the legend of 
West Virginia court prowess, and also turned to foot- 
ball or ping-pong, as you like it. Academics presented 
no worries either for this budding mental giant— in fact, 
it wasn't until Second Class Year that he recognized the 
existence of slipsticks. Before USNA, Johnny found 
time between his sports and his trombone to learn how 
to fly, so it is not surprising that he is a candidate for 
those "wings of gold" once he is with the fleet. From 
then on, he'll be good for twenty years— or more! Ener- 
getic, fun-loving, keen of mind and muscle— if Johnny 
had an Achilles heel, he never advertized it. One 
thing sure— here's one mountaineer who wears shoes 
and likes 'em. Socks? You'll have to ask Johnny. 



H&rman { U), Jones 

NEW CASTLE, INDIANA 

Although known by many as "Prone Jones", because of 
his record-breaking number of hours spent in the sack, 
Bill was always quite wide awake when it came to ac- 
complishing some job. He was the fellow who, as chair- 
man of the Ring Dance Committee, provided us with the 
finest hop of our careers. He was also head cheer 
leader, a three-year N-winner in gymnastics, and a 
member of the Concert Band and the Glee Club. Bill 
possessed an extremely pleasant and likeable person- 
ality, coupled with a cheerful "help-the-other-fellow" 
spirit and a subtle sense of humor which prompted all 
hands to agree that "there's one fine guy". This loss 
to Purdue, Sigma Chi, and the Naval Air Corps was 
definitely USNA's gain. 




264 



SCARSDALE, NEW YORK 

Dick came to the misty shores of the Chesapeake from 
the sunny banks of Rock Creek, with a year at Yale in 
between. He devoted most of his free afternoons to 
sports, usually football, or handball, or to the sack. Near 
the end of Plebe Year he was heard to boast, "I'm in the 
color company, I've got a cast iron posterior." Although 
he was not a "Red Mike," where wine, women, and 
song are concerned, he could take 'em or leave 'em. 
His favorite topics of conversation are the evils of the 
various Academic Departments and recent Yale victories 
over Harvard. "The Killer" is interested in both avia- 
tion and submarines. Whatever he does and wherever 
he goes, he is sure to make many new friends with his 
cheerful smile and quiet dependability. 






William H. /%<>##/. IU 

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA 

Bill came to the Academy from the wilds of Alabama 
with a fighting heart which, even after these many 
years of combat with the system, is still unconquered. 
It was this insuppressible spirit that guided him on the 
gridiron, the tennis courts, in the classroom, and in all 
activities. Socially speaking, Bill was an ardent ex- 
plorer. "Every week a different drag— may she always 
be a queen!" was the policy to which he adhered with 
few exceptions. Though perhaps not as gifted intel- 
lectually as Einstein or Archimedes, at no time was he 
hard pressed to keep within the top third of the class. 
As an individual he was a conscientious worker who 
possessed the aggressive spirit, coordination, and abil- 
ity which spelled success, both in the classroom and on 
the playing field.

WEST COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY 

Early in Plebe Summer this mystified middie wandered 
in from West Collingswood, a metropolitan area of 
which Philadelphia is a suburb. Kirk passed the physical 
then, but he later suffered from that malady known as 
"Bancroft Blindness." This was not the result of all 
study and no play, however. He liked exercise, that of 
the body bruising sports in particular. Back at Collings- 
wood High and at Bullis Prep he was a football star; 
here at the Academy he played football, fieldball and 
pushball. Weekends were reserved for gentler pursuits 
—dragging his OAO or playing bridge, for example. 
Because of his failing eyesight, he expects to go to the 
Harvard school of business administration. In the Navy 
or out, Kirk will be a competent administrator with 
many friends.

RUSSELLVILLE, KENTUCKY 

The little man with the evaporating blond hair was one 
of the foremost representatives of the state of Kentucky. 
He knew every inch of his home state as a result of 
following his Dad, a civil engineer in Kentucky. Tom 
chose a circuitous route to the Academy, spending six 
months as an Army aviation cadet and sixteen months 
wearing bell bottom trousers. His educational back- 
ground was diversified. T. D. played alto sax in the 
college dance band, was president of the junior and 
senior classes at College High and after graduation won 
a heated race for governor of Blue Grass Boy's State. 
Tom will be remembered for his ability on the hardwood, 
his mania for swing music, his choice of women, and his 
amiability. 



£>dward J (ttiagu£r& 9 Jr. 

LARCHMONT, NEW YORK 

The "Pure Squire" was one of the closest approaches to 
a paragon of virtue that we met, either at Navy, or 
anywhere else. Space does not permit enumeration, but 
let it suffice that he was a fine, good-natured Irish 
gentleman, a credit to his family, and a source of edi- 
fication to all who knew him. Second Class Christmas 
we all lost a 4.0 buddy when Dick Swanson, his wife, 
came back with a gold band, signed "Yes," and left 
the fold. It would seem that "Squire Ed" had a great 
affinity for water, for not only was it his favorite bever- 
age, but he was a natural when it came to getting 
around in it, either in swimming or sailing. With grad- 
uation, his affinity will be greater yet, for, in order to 
get as close to it as possible, the Squire will try to 
surround himself with it in a sub. He should fare well 
in the fleet, with his genial grin and friendly manner. 



James £. J%ta4>4ih> 

HOUSTON, TEXAS 

When Jim happened around, it was a sign to drop the 
books and prepare for an enjoyable five minutes of re- 
laxing conversation. He was always prepared to for- 
sake the books for a football or basketball game with 
the gang, and his lanky, well-coordinated frame plus 
high school experience made him the star of the com- 
pany basketball teams for four years. During other 
seasons he joined the company fieldball, soccer, and 
softball teams, because "company sports don't inter- 
fere with my dragging", and dragging lovely women 
to hops was another of his favorite pastimes. Jim had 
two sides to his character— the good natured side and 
the gracious side. Both were in evidence at all times in 
conjunction with his ready smile for the entire world.

FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA 

From the plains of North Dakota, our Northernmost out- 
post, and from the little village of Wahpeton therein, 
came Walter Marquardt, a young fellow who wore the 
uniform of Uncle Sam's Navy with the inspiration of 
someday becoming a great Admiral. This whim came, 
of course, after he had decided against missionary 
work in his home territory. In his younger days Walt 
was quite an athlete, being not only a star backfleld 
man on Wap High's gridiron but also an All-State 
choice in basketball. He extended his abilities to Navy 
and has done quite well. We might also add that Walter 
was no slouch in academics either. We are sure that 
Walter, with his winning ways and enticing smile, will 
someday reach El Dorado, in spite of his fast failing 
eyesight. 



Pialph <U). <mcMrihnr 

GHOLSON, MISSISSIPPI 

The life of R. W. (Mac) McArthur represented the best 
in the tradition of the old South. Born in Mississippi in 
1923, he spent the first eighteen years of his life grow- 
ing up and attending Lynwood High School. Then came 
Mississippi State, where he chose mechanical engineer- 
ing as his major, and spent two years pursuing this 
course. Here the rigorous academics proved difficult 
at first, but persistence was his guide, and Mac stuck 
with us year after year. For four years he was a fix- 
ture in the wrestling loft, filling in the off-season pe- 
riods with company and battalion sports. His major 
interest, next to wrestling, was Mississippi music, whether 
it be Dixieland or mountain style. In Mac, the Fleet 
will be getting a capable and determined officer who 
will make his worth felt.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA 

Mike has really been around. A stretch of working 
with the F.B.I., a pre-law course at George Washington 
U., adoption into Sioux Indian tribe, and air-cadet 
training were just a few of Mike's varied experiences. 
Never having learned the Sioux language, Mike started 
from scratch in Dago, but became the company French 
slash by the end of Youngster Year. Although a Mike 
by name, Mac could never be classified as a red one, 
for even the tea fights sometimes caught his fancy. 
Mike was blessed with that mild sincerity which makes 
for popularity anywhere; always he could be counted 
on to listen to someone else's troubles, or help out in 
a pinch. His foresight, coolness, and discretion should 
make his future one of success.

William €. tlt4 titumu/ 

WESTERN SPRINGS, ILLINOIS 

Bill, or Mac, came to Navy from right outside the Windy 
City, via a stretch as a seaman in the Naval Reserve. 
In spite of a definite tinge of Blue and Gold, he swore 
he'd swap all of Maryland for any square mile of 
Illinois. Bill's life before the Navy included high school 
in LaGrange and a passion for hot convertibles. Here 
on the Severn he took active parts in most of the com- 
pany sports, and during liberty hours could often be 
found doing a little private flying. Academics came 
rather easy, so Bill spent a lot of good study time 
buried in all kinds of magazines and newspapers. Mac's 
love of flying points toward a successful career in Na- 
val Aviation. One of his weaknesses was the fair sex, 
and it was said that a southern drawl was dynamite 
to him! 



Carlos D. nicCullvuah 

FAYETTE, MISSOURI 

Mac gave up a commission to come to Navy, where, 
after a rugged time in an underwater demolition school, 
even Plebe Year seemed like a picnic. Although he 
entered last in our class, he was far from least in both 
academics and sports. As a halfback on the batt foot- 
ball team, his speed and drive won for him a place on 
the All-Brigade team. The rest of his free afternoons 
were consumed by track. In the winter he pounded the 
boards of Dahlgren Hall and spring took him out to 
Thompson Stadium, where his forte was the broad jump. 
He also liked a fast game of handball or a few rubbers 
of bridge. Carlos will be a welcome addition to any 
wardroom. He's quiet and serious with a knack for 
applying his knowledge. He is sure to make a success 
of the service career he has chosen to follow.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, TRINIDAD 

Although most people usually associated the tropic 
land, Trinidad, with scorpions, Gila monsters, and asphalt 
lakes in place of gardens, to John it was home— a veri- 
table heaven on earth which he was ever ready to 
praise. Like the rest of us, Mac had his daily tussle 
with the Academic Departments, but he always came 
out on top, for his serious attitude and initiative made 
the technical subjects easy. In the way of athletics John 
combined two traits that make champions, natural abil- 
ity and zeal for practice. Those after taps letters were 
to his fiance, Ginny, who came down often from New 
York to make John's weekends perfect. Mac's sense 
of fair play and loyalty make him one of the truest 
of friends, and his character, know-how, and leader- 
ship will make him a wonderful officer.

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND 

After two years as a V-12er, and an unstated period 
as possessor of those little gold bars, the "Young En- 
sign" gave up his merry roadster, threw off his weighty 
gold braid, and joined our lowly ranks. After a slow 
start ("Got a drag for June Week yet, John?"), McT 
became the Don Juan of Don Juans, an operator sans 
pareil— he didn't even find it necessary to possess the 
usual line. Since those first humorous sojourns to the 
course across the river Youngster Year, John's golf game 
has improved to the point of "near perfection," and as 
a yachtsman he has also proved his mettle— a sporting 
gentleman was McT. If, in our four years here, some- 
thing has troubled John, no one save he has ever known 
about it, for continually he has maintained that calm, 
even disposition that makes for good fellowship. 






<W. W. <meanix* Jr. 

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Bill left Harvard in the spring of '45 and came to the 
Naval Academy. Though he had some trouble at first 
getting "hahf" enough "badadoes" to eat, a Boston 
accent was no handicap in class; he stood high with 
little effort, and probably caused the profs more em- 
barrassing moments than they were able to cause him. 
In athletics, his specialty was the hurdles, in which his 
ability reflected his father's Olympian talents. He also 
played halfback on the 150-pound football team. 
Naturally playful, Bill was dubbed the "Tiger," a nick- 
name reflecting his competitive spirit and good nature. 
There probably never was a monotone in the history of 
the Academy who could render the "Whiffen-poof Song" 
in so sterling a manner as his. We wish him a future 
as good as his record here. 



WATSONVILLE, CALIFORNIA 

Gil, a curly-haired Californian, has been one of the 
"outstanding characters" in our class— outstanding for 
making friends and for always having a cheerful word 
or smile for everyone. He had a carefree way about 
him which one could not help but admire. Having no 
particular hobbies, he confined his interests to trying 
to play bridge and attempting to find the girl who will 
someday be his own. In the former he slowly succeeded. 
In the latter— well, to date he's still trying. We are 
certain that Gil will be very successful in life— either in 
the Navy or in California growing apples. His pleasant 
disposition will always continue to win more friends and 
with his ability life could never be a failure for him.

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN 

When Chuck was not busy burning up his slipstick, he 
was pulling an oar in the number three seat of Navy's 
crew. Aside from his powers on the water, Chuck could 
mould a lump of clay into anything that struck his fancy. 
Plebe Year he caused a mild sensation by creating a 
life-like statuette of one of Bancroft Hall's famous D.O.'s. 
After spending a year and a half as an aviation cadet 
without seeing an airplane, so he says, he yearned for 
duty in the floating Navy. BuPers felt differently and 
transferred him to the Santa Rosa Air Base, California, 
to peddle a bicycle. This, strangely enough, was con- 
sidered overseas duty. Charlie, coupled with his ever 
present smile, is proficient with anything academic or 
mechanical.

WEST POINT, MISSISSIPPI 

The stirring strains of Dixie were in the air and a Rebel 
Yell rent the peace of historic Annapolis as Rip Miller 
took possession of Maryland in the name of his native 
Southland. As if this were not enough, he further 
shocked Naval Academy officials by informing them 
that he hailed from West Point (Mississippi), and if they 
did not think he would do well at Navy, guess again. 
He has stood well up in the class, contributed no small 
athletic ability to company and batt sports, and ex- 
celled on the waters of the Chesapeake, acquiring his 
yawl command with ease. Equally suave when sailing, 
dancing, or while discussing the more romantic subjects 
on a cozy sofa, Rip had an ability with the fairer sex 
that was to be admired.

NORTH MIAMI, FLORIDA 

Entering at the tender age of 17, Dick was a younger 
member of the class, whose beardless face never let 
his classmates forget that one inferiority. A regional 
accent unmistakeably from Long Island revealed his 
native state; a short residence in Florida, however, con- 
vinced him that he would eventually settle down in rebel 
territory. Confining his activities to sports he expected 
to use in later years, he could be found either on the 
golf course, tennis courts, bowling alleys, or in the 
swimming pool, enjoying his free time to the fullest. 
Quiet and rather unassuming during Plebe Summer, 
he soon learned that these qualities were unproductive 
in a Naval career and exchanged them for an ever- 
ready smile and friendship winning manner.

HAMBURG, NEW YORK 

Bobby strolled into Bancroft fresh from a twenty-seven 
month tour as a Naval Aviation Cadet with tales of 
home and Hamburg. As far as academics were con- 
cerned, Bob came out on the winning side. If there 
was ever a disturbance during study hour, you could 
always bet that he and the Arkansas Traveler were at 
it again. His athletic prowess dated back to high school 
days when he lettered in baseball and football. During 
Plebe Year, Bobby swam with the batt team and earned 
numerals that spring in plebe baseball. During the rest 
of his stay at Navy Tech, his visions of being a big 
Navy athlete began to wan and company sports be- 
came his forte. Although he was never one to let a 
girl get him fouled up, his escapades on Second Class 
Cruise were the talk of the Kearsarge. 



WELLESLEY HILLS, MASSACHUSETTS 

Look for the longest pair of legs in the State of Mary- 
land and you will find this long and lanky Yankee from 
Boston. Bred on broad A's, Boston baked beans, and 
sea food, Molly was constantly endeavoring to show 
his unenlightened classmates from the hinterland the 
one true way. He prepped for the Naval Academy at 
Severn School and spent a year in the Navy V-12 at 
Tuffts College. Molly was the sleepiest individual who 
has entered Bancroft Hall in many a year. He could 
sleep during almost all study periods and still pass 
every course. A favorite game of his classmates was 
"holding reveille on Mollison." Oliver's main interest 
in sports was lacrosse. He played with the plebe and 
J.V. teams during his four years here. Molly's one weak- 
ness was blondes, one in particular.

RANCHO SANTA FE, CALIFORNIA 

Lundi must have acquired his love for the sun before 
he traveled the Old Spanish Trail to Navy, because 
here he could always be found working up a tan with 
the first signs of spring. Having earned letters in foot- 
ball, basketball, track, baseball, and golf at high school, 
he deserted all these sports for Navy's varsity gym team 
to the cry of "Up your rope, Moore!", and to round out 
his repetoire was also a member of the varsity soccer 
team. All these endeavors belied the fact that he was 
a lover of the sack, and earned his title of "Henry the 
Ate" as an able chow-hound. Academically speaking, 
there were anxious moments now and then, but Lundi 
always managed to come through unbowed, if a little 
bloody. Easy to get along with and always friendly, 
Lundi will do well in his chosen profession.

SACO, MAINE 

Bob left pine-forested vacation lands far behind when 
he came to Navy, but his proximity to the sea all his 
life made him a natural for the Academy. After Exeter, 
Bob, fretting with anticipation, marked time at Bates 
College, so the academics held no terror for this star 
man, who combined background and ability to excel. 
His skiing ability made his Christmas leaves one long 
Christie at North Conway, while his golfing and tennis 
skills, combined with dragging, his year 'round sport, 
took care of the rest of the time. Known as "Hairy 
Bob," not because of his ever-so-slightly receding hair- 
line, but as a result of a series of explosive incidents 
known to his intimes, he had one worry— where to get a 
June Week drag. Dinty's enthusiasm and drive will 
bring him success wherever he goes.

UNIONTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA 

Nick's appearance at Severn shores was delayed while 
he did time as a red hot civilian at Penn State college, 
a patron of the local beer hall, a Naval Air Cadet, and 
a seaman 2/c with diversified duty. Coming to Navy 
via a fleet appointment was not the easiest road to 
success, but he made it. Nick's jovial and blase atti- 
tude toward life was often surprisingly punctuated with 
references from the Bible, Shakespeare, and Regula- 
tions of USNA, although he often confused the sources. 
Small of stature, but strong in physique, despite a 
swiftly retreating hairline, Nick always had feminine 
admirers. His fine competitive spirit, aggressiveness, 
and sense of fair play were always outstanding in 
friendly arguments and in his favorite forms of athletics. 



William M. llltjow* 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

"It's not what 'cha know, it's who ya know," has always 
been Bill's contention, but regardless, there was still 
plenty of "Know-how" to go with that broad smile and 
amiable personality. Having few academic worries, he 
found time to play a mean line position on the company 
soccer team and to deal around a few hands of contract 
when the occasion arose. His weekly football posters and 
his contributions to the class crest speak well for his 
artistic talents. An ability to say and do the right things 
at the right times has made Bill's social life an outstand- 
ing success, but his classmates have always been a little 
uncertain about which Irish lass he would drag next. 
Bill has displayed his capabilities by taking a full Acad- 
emy career in stride. This is only a prelude to a suc- 
cessful future.

Forsaking Cayuga's waters Lee brought to Severn's 
shores his great sense of humor combined with brain 
and brawn. Well fortified intellectually, and always will- 
ing to help a classmate, he gave extra instruction fre- 
quently. When not occupied in this manner, he divided 
his evening study hours between playing bridge and 
writing daily letters to his OAO. In the field of athletics, 
he was a stalwart end on the gridiron and a dangerous 
center on the basketball court, and from September to 
June he never let up. Lee's congenial spirit gives him a 
love of bull sessions and good-fellow gatherings, and if 
kidding were a virtue, he'd be a saint. Some men suc- 
ceed by what they know, others by what they do, but 
Lee will succeed by what he is.

Apparently Larry's eight months at the University of 
California and twenty-two months in the Marine Corps, 
where he was a sergeant, radio technician, gave him 
time to form some very strong convictions, to which he 
was always more than ready to give voice. Being an 
Irishman as well as a Californian, and proud of them 
both, he combined certain traditional characteristics, 
including a determination never to abandon his ideas, 
a wonderful gift of gab, and a temper that never broke 
even under the greatest strains. Although his athletic 
activities were confined to intramural sports, Larry was 
a keyman on the batt lacrosse team, and spent his 
falls playing for the batt football team. In spite of 
constant beleaguering by his wives, Larry is a man with 
high ideals who lived up to them— a thoroughly grand

"Oaf" came to us from Richmond, Virginia by way of 
Thomas Jefferson High and Bullis Prep. The main ob- 
stacle Bill had to overcome academically was Plebe 
Steam, but a combination of a clean set of drawing 
instruments and a dogged Southern pride made the 
Steam Department realize they had a valuable man. 
Bill, still undecided as to a future on the sea, took 
advantage of every opportunity for a week end of 
fun on the beach. It had been noticed that the major 
portion of his important week ends were spent with 
a fair belle from the old Dominion State. There were 
many who will long remember a pair of laughing eyes 
which combined with a slowly receding hairline to 
yield somewhat over 200 pounds of a good-natured, 
honest friendship and Oaf!

Dean came to the Naval Academy from the Wolverine 
State, whence he brought with him a love for winter 
sports. Perhaps the Maryland weather changed him, for 
here with winter's last snow still melting you could find 
him pounding the cinders. He won his N and has been a 
fine performer in both indoor and outdoor track, run- 
ning the hurdles and the 440 yard dash. "Da Hoot" was 
by no means all athlete, for he also enjoyed the finer 
things in life such as good books, music, and bridge. 
He was usually calm and collected except when his 
name was misspelled. Dean has made many friends 
because of his versatility and undying good humor. A 
peek into our crystall ball fails to reveal his future, but 
we are sure that he will find success in his chosen field.

WATERFORD, CONNECTICUT 

From the vast reaches of the Mess Hall (delete Mess 
Hall, insert Wardroom Mess) and echoing through the 
endless corridors of Bancroft, comes the call of the 
"Foosh"— the one, the only, the incomparable Foosh, 
our pride and joy, a constant source of amusement and 
amazement to all. His bright, sparkling eyes and nearly 
constant grin marked him as a man ever ready to 
enjoy life, and take what might come in his stride. He 
was the only known underwater "Oiseau," as, contrary 
to his sobriquet, he is a submariner from the word go, 
having grown up in New London, and coming to us with 
thirteen months of a USN "kiddy cruise" in his wake. 
All are agreed that the "Judge," who was always ready 
to try a case (of Scotch, that is) before the bar, will 
make out in a 4.0 manner. Take 'er down, Foosh!

"Jake" was probably the roughest, toughest, deadliest 
hombre to ever leave the hills of Wyoming for a big 
eastern city like Crabtown-on-the-Bay. Known best for 
his easy-going manner and his interesting anecdotes of 
the Far West, "Guns" was also known as "the man 
who played fine piano". One of the truest statements 
ever said about "Ost" was that everyone always had 
a good word for him because he always had a good 
word for everyone else. His western environment en- 
dowed him with a quiet, easy manner and a pleasing 
personality which made him welcome everywhere. John's 
modesty and genuine sincerity produced the effect on 
people of wanting to know him better, and his consid- 
eration for others gained him a long list of true friends.

SILVER CREEK, NEW YORK 

Take the first two initials of Milton's name and you 
have his nickname. Milt's most outstanding character- 
istic was his way of always being quiet and easy going. 
He was seldom known to anger even when the routine 
became extremely monotonous, as it often did. MO 
liked music and basketball, but his first love was basket- 
ball. As a plebe he played in the NA-10, but the next 
year he made the varsity basketball squad so it was 
one or the other and MO chose the latter. After high 
school in Silver Creek where he won letters in base- 
ball, basketball, and track, in addition to playing in 
his high school band and orchestra, MO enrolled at 
Syracuse University where he won his letter in varsity 
basketball. Then he spent a short time in the Army 
before being appointed to the Academy. 



John C. Peters 

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA 

This versatile son of the Hoosier State has already ac- 
credited himself with an impressive list of naval accom- 
plishments. In 1938 he was a Sea Scout. In 1943 he was 
coerced (drafted) into pursuing his nautical bent and in 
1945 he entered the Academy on a fleet appointment. 
Pete played the French horn in the Jordan Conservatory 
Orchestra, the Purdue Band, and other musical groups, 
and was well known in Bancroft Hall as the conductor 
of the Naval Academy Concert Band which, because of 
his brilliant leadership, needs no introduction. All those 
who have known him have been impressed by his vivaci- 
ous personality. Pete's future is as yet uncertain, but we 
can be sure he will find success and command respect 
in any field that he may enter.

After two unsuccessful attempts, Ken finally entered the 
Naval Academy with two years in the Marine Corps 
behind him. Interested in putting the next four years to 
good use, he worked hard and seriously, with the result 
that he found no fault with his class standing. Outside 
the classroom he got great enjoyment from Plebe track, 
intramural football and softball, sailing and tennis, with 
stray week ends and evening happy hours devoted to 
such readings that his wives tagged him as a liberal arts 
fanatic. Greatly concerned as to how to manage his 
life in the Navy, he'd like to gain experience in air, 
surface, and submarine duty, and settle down to post- 
graduate work in engineering. We all join in wishing 
the best of luck to you, Ken.

Always one to do things the hard way, "Chaz" came to 
Navy for his commission, leaving V-12 and N.R.O.T.C. 
when he was just four months short of the goal. He took 
reluctant leave of his Mississippi home for the trip 
North, all the while extolling the many virtues of the 
South and the queenly attributes of Southern belles, 
those of his OAO in particular. When he wasn't holding 
extra instruction for his wives and classmates, Chuck 
spent his time under a heavy load of extra-curricular 
activities including varsity track, the Trident Magazine, 
and the Choir and Glee Club. Aspiring toward wings of 
gold and an assignment in Naval Aviation, Chaz is a 
sure bet for a welcome reception and continuing success 
wherever his duties take him. 



Mice J 1 . SPyles 

FAIRMONT, WEST VIRGINIA 

Known to his classmates as Ernie, this diminutive mem- 
ber of '49 is an ardent exponent of the fact that physical 
stature isn't the prime requisite for success. While endur- 
ing four years of academics he has achieved great re- 
known as an energetic worker and one of the larger 
consumers of pencils around Bancroft. He has con- 
sistently been one of the men behind the scenes for the 
Masqueraders and Musical Club shows. In his few free 
moments he enjoyed music "in any form" and he seldom 
missed a hop. A firm believer that variety is the spice of 
life, he dragged many different girls— we would all like 
to know the secret of his attraction for beautiful femmes. 
Whatever the future holds for him, it is certain that Lee 
will make the most of his opportunities and will always 
have a host of friends wherever he goes. 



William til. natlitf 

TYLERTOWN, MISSISSIPPI 

Finding the New York winters too cold for him after a 
lifetime in Mississippi, Red left West Point at the end of 
Plebe Year and joined the better branch of the service. 
His easygoing manner brought him through four years 
of strictly regulated life here apparently heedless of the 
hustle and bustle of his surroundings. When he was not 
attending extra instruction in swimming, he liked to play 
volleyball. His ability to get things done with the least 
possible exertion has made him the envy of many of his 
classmates. Although he did not claim to be a "Red 
Mike," he seldom dragged. Bill's quietness, sincerity, and 
his ability to get along with everyone should prove in- 
valuable in making him a success in his chosen career.

RICHMOND HILL, NEW YORK 

To Gene, graduation meant the start of what will prob- 
ably be an eventful career in Uncle Sam's surface Navy. 
After completing the course at Brooklyn Technical High, 
he spent two years in the reserve before entering 
Annapolis on a fleet appointment. Frances' closest com- 
petition for Blackie's affection was without a doubt the 
game of basketball, for which he earned a letter in 
high school, and to which he devoted much of his rec- 
reation time here. When he wasn't playing with the 
company five, he often practiced over in MacDonough 
Hall on his own and almost always had his array of 
trick shots down pat. He also played company volley- 
ball and touch football, and could sometimes be seen 
catching the duty boat to get in a few holes of golf 
before dark. A happy career and life certainly await 
you, Gene.

DELPHOS, OHIO 

"Der Rollo" first learned of the Navy way in boot 
camp at Great Lakes. When he came to the Academy, 
he brought with him his tool kit and an amazing ability 
to get things done. His locker more than once produced 
the necessary equipment for a repair job on anything 
from a fountain pen to a strong box or for whipping 
up a Rube Goldberg gadget with which to amaze wide- 
eyed onlookers. As a member of the juice gang, he 
helped to hang many a sign carrying best wishes for 
Christmas or regrets for Army. Perhaps Rick's greatest 
accomplishment was bidding youngster cruise farewell 
with a "what-the-hell" pennant on the mainmast of that 
ship of all ships, the Washington. To say that there is 
never a dull moment when Rollo is around would be a 
gross understatement. We know he will find a place in 
the Fleet. 



CINCINNATI, OHIO 

Known as the Pied Piper of Annapolis, Paul could be 
seen any Sunday at the Presbyterian Church trailed by 
the little charges who constituted his Sunday School 
class. His interest in religion and philosophy and his 
athletic activities occupied the time not claimed by 
academics. His tenacious playing as an end on the 
Plebe and J.V. football teams earned for him the nick- 
name "The Grip," only one of the many he acquired. 
Although his soft voice and courteous manners did some- 
thing to the ladies, "Teepee" was strictly a "Red Mike." 
However he did use these same traits to advantage dur- 
ing debates as a member of the Quarterdeck Society. 
He hopes to enter the foreign service, and with his 
winning smile, twinkling eyes, and calm, persuasive man- 
ner he should make a good diplomat. We wish him every 
success.

Jwank ©. Kvland, Jr. 

GREENVILLE, ALABAMA 

When Zeke was a little boy, he joined the Boy Scouts. 
By cutting the throats of the other boys he worked up 
to a Star Scout. At Navy, he wasn't a star academi- 
cally, but he did change from a Boy Scout to a girl 
scout. We never let his initials fool us, for when he 
considered something worth the effort, no one could 
work at it harder than he. It just happened that he 
preferred athletics to Steam and Skinny. It was a well 
known fact that when Zeke and his buddies got together 
the Devil would certainly be raised. His reputation 
among his boy friends was quite different from that 
among his girl friends, but both were enviable. Frank 
was man enough to handle any situation in which he 
found himself. He'll continue to make his luck in the 
future. 



SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

After almost two years in the regular Navy, during 
which he attained the rate of fireman, first class, Jack 
was still anxiously looking forward to a service career 
as a line officer. Back home in Seattle, he attended 
Foster High School, where he was a letterman on the 
basketball squad. Upon passing the regular fleet 
entrance examination, he entered the Academy seeking 
outlets for his intense love of sports. He took part in 
batt swimming, handball, and squash, and company 
softball, but found that his height was of more use to 
the volleyball and basketball teams. Many of his week- 
ends were spent dragging, but often he crossed the 
river to hit a little golf ball around and dig up some turf. 
His slow, easy-going golfing was typical of his char- 
acter and general manner. 



<~hottni* Hi, {Rogers 

LEONA, TEXAS 

Tommy came to Navy from deep in the heart of Texas 
with the experience gained at the University of Texas 
and natural ability to fulfill his ambition to add to his 
long string of academic laurels. He was, however, al- 
ways ready to help some bucket with his Math assign- 
ment. Red never had the urge to go out for a varsity 
sport, but he was a mainstay of the company basket- 
ball, gym, and softball teams. He was well known for 
his effervescent humor and for his ready defense of the 
South. Evidence of his being somewhat of a non- 
conformist was shown by his often participation on 
the extra duty squad after a clash with the system. 
Industry and perseverance might well be Red's middle 
names, making him a sure bet in the future.

'tPetew J m Sawris 

ANTIGO, WISCONSIN 

Pete played high school football and basketball back 
home in Antigo, Wisconsin, where he was born. After 
spending over a year in the Navy as a seaman deuce, 
he passed the regular entrance examination and en- 
tered the Academy on a congressional appointment 
in time to get well into the swing of the system before 
'49 joined the brigade. Plebe Year found him earning 
class numerals for his work with the basketball squad, 
but he later switched to the company five; and, during 
Second Class Year he became a capable and active 
participant at the pivot spot on the 150 pound Na- 
tional Championship football team. Probably Pete's two 
greatest characteristics were his love for those tasty 
brews which made Wisconsin famous and his loyalty 
for those ancestors from the extremity of the Balkan 
Peninsula. 



Jiill% §4101 Hi** 

BEAVER FALLS, NEW YORK 

After thirty-nine months as a Navy radioman, with two 
years of sub duty, Jack was well able to call the Navy 
his home. Here at Navy Tech, he has strived for four 
long years to maintain his wrinkled topknot at civilian 
length, and to top his wives' sarcasm with that of his 
own sharp tongue, which was a tribute to Maughan— a 
Razor's Edge. A man of strong back and broad shoul- 
ders, Sco spent two seasons "puddle pushing" with the 
crew squad. In academics, his firm belief was that a 
little work was good for the soul, but that anything 
extra was good for neither Jack nor the soul. Probably 
one of the best grilled cheese men in Bancroft, Snow- 
ball will be forever eligible for a short order cook job, 
but wherever he goes, whatever he does, Jack will have 
the stuff to make good in a big way. 






Swmn&w* Shapiro 

NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE 

"Shop's" trade mark, a profile of Tecumseh, is well 
known because of his cartoons in the LOG and the 
Trident Calendars, and his somewhat vague resemblance 
to that Indian chief prompted his classmates to shower 
him with pennies for luck the night before the 1946 
Army game. He went into the Army as an Aviation 
Cadet after graduation from the Nashua High School 
in 1943, but chose Annapolis over West Point when 
appointments to both schools were available in 1945. 
Almost any night that he wasn't drawing cartoons he 
could be found dragging a hammer around Thompson 
Stadium area. Few people ever saw him throw it but 
we'll take his word that he did. Shap has his eyes on 
Naval Aviation after graduation. Keep your eyes on 
him, he'll go a long way in the service.

Stephen £1. Skomshwj 

BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK 

Though known for his penchant for heated argument, 
"S. A." was a likeable sort of guy, and his occasional 
outbursts were really the results of exasperation, not or- 
ders from the Kremlin. The "Skomper," was a natural 
for heavy work on the plebe and JV football teams, 
where he won awards, but his attentions were turned 
in another direction when Dick Johnson, one of the 
swellest boys to ever breathe USNA air, introduced 
him to Dotty, with whom Steve plans to face the music 
come June of '49. In returning from Youngster Christ- 
mas, "Good Steve" became just plain "Big Steve," when 
his spotless record was marred— had he had one of 
his beloved planes, he might have made it back on time. 
With fifteen months in enlisted Naval Aviation behind 
him, "S. A." plans to go after those wings of gold. 



MtawoMd J. Shirfey 

NEW ALBANY, INDIANA 

After a year and a half at Purdue University, majoring 
in M. E., H. J. enlisted in the Army and was sent over- 
seas to the European Theater of Operation, earning the 
blue and silver badge of a combat infantryman. He was 
perhaps best known for his refreshing humor and his 
never ending supply of cigars. During Academy years, 
Shirl carried on a never ending, never dull, feud with 
Charlie Smith. These two were constantly perpetuating 
diabolical schemes to plague each other. H. J. joined 
the Spanish, Russian, and Boat Clubs through the 
courtesy of Mr. Smith. The old H. J. did not always 
see eye to eye with the USNA Regulations, and has 
picked up at least one "Black N." His Navy plans are 
not definite, but he is sure he will never again have 
muddy feet from the Infantry. 



mfwed & Siwn€M€h 

LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK 

World War II brought a new type of man to the Naval 
Academy and such a man was "Sim." He fought his 
way from the beaches of Normandy to the wooded hills 
of Germany with the 29th Infantry Division. Then he 
traded in his rifle for a slide rule and fought his way 
through N.A.P.S. and the Academy. In accomplishing 
this he realized a long-standing ambition which he de- 
veloped as an outstanding cadet at Peekskill Military 
Academy. Although it was a long hard battle, his deter- 
mined spirit, mature attitude, and cool thinking brought 
him through with his head high. He liked to spend his 
free time playing handball and softball, sailing, or 
dragging his O.A.O.ATs. Loyalty, spirit, and quiet mod- 
esty have earned for him the respect and good wishes 
of all of us who have known him.

Charles €tl. Smith 

LYNBROOK, NEW YORK 

Behind the wheel of a yawl, with his sou'wester pulled 
snugly down over his ears and a cigar stuck at a rakish 
angle from the side of his mouth, the old skipper brought 
to mind a Navy long dead. Spike was also an avid ski 
enthusiast, beginning his skiing at Middlebury College 
in Vermont, and spending most of his Christmas leaves 
sliding over the Vermont countryside on his favorite 
hickory boards. Academically inclined, Spike joined the 
Spanish and M. E. Clubs. Having been in the submarine 
service before entering the Academy, Spike wants to 
return on graduation, and branch off into deep sea 
diving and salvage work. Spike's sparkling personality, 
ever-present wit and willingness to tackle any problem 
will make him a sure success in any field he enters. 






£arl <W. Smith, Jr. 

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE 

Brother Earl of Bancroft revival fame, a loyal son of the 
Old South, brought all the ideals of a true Southern 
gentleman to the Naval Academy, even considering 
seceding when he was reported for flying the "foreign 
flag" of the Confederacy out of his window. Earl car- 
ried with him a philosophy of life that helped both 
himself and his classmates over some of the more cru- 
cial moments of a midshipman's career— he believed life, 
love, and the pursuit of comfort were too valuable to 
risk by worrying over trivialities. We all know that 
Earl's demonstrated adaptability will stand him in good 
stead in future associations. 



£>dg&wton C. £>. Spragwc 

MICHIGAN CITY, INDIANA 

Those attributes by which Tenny earned membership in 
two engineering honoraries, Tau Beta Pi and Pi Tau 
Sigma, while at Purdue University afforded him the time 
and ability to participate in a number of extra-cur- 
ricular functions here at the Academy. Executive Com- 
mittee of the N.A.C.A., Brigade Activities Committee, 
Spanish Club, and JV basketball occupied most of his 
time. When not engaged in one of those activities, in 
athletics, in dragging, or in helping someone with a 
Steam prob, "The Turtle" would likely be found on his 
sack reading a current best seller. Nothing less than 
a formation bell could disturb his power of concentra- 
tion. His consistency, logic, and tactfulness in giving 
his straightforward opinions identify him as the kind of 
man for a good associate and friend.

KINGSPORT, TENNESSEE 

Rocky came to us from the mountains of East Tennes- 
see "where men are men and the women are glad of it." 
In high school he was voted the most studious in his 
graduating class, but his real yearning was for the 
outdoors; he has always been a crack rifle and pistol 
shot, as well as a capable horseman and trout fisher- 
man. George attended VPI for a year and then enlisted 
in the Navy for a short stretch before coming to An- 
napolis. His spare time activities included varsity track 
and rifle, as well as batt wrestling, crew, and lacrosse. 
Regarding the ladies, he was partial to fashion models, 
and more than one thought a lot of him. Rocky was a 
well-liked fellow whose determination should be a 
sign of good things to come. 



Charles O. Swanson 

DELTA, COLORADO 

Broad-minded Chuck came to Navy after a brief warm- 
ing at Bullis Prep, but no one was ever able to convince 
him that the "western slope" of the Rockies wasn't the 
finest country on earth. As a plebe, he quite often had 
to pull on those white leggins for an afternoon stroll 
around Farragut Field with the boys, but that was soon 
a thing of the past, and he was able to spend his 
afternoons on his sack, dreaming of skiis, fish and pheas- 
ants, and those snow covered peaks around home. 
Right up to graduation CO. was in a rather confused 
state, since he was undecided both about the Navy 
as a career and about women as a snare and delusion. 
His being so passive in romance was surely only a re- 
sult of his pleasing personality and warm friendliness, 
and maybe of his prowess on a basketball floor, too. 



/Vt #t I 31 Stephenson 

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA 

Steve came to Navy Tech via the Army Air Corps and 
N.A.P.S. on a fleet appointment. His extra curricular 
activities here ran to the body-bruising athletics, namely 
football and lacrosse— the rougher the better. A valiant 
defender of the divine American right of free speech, 
"Tevie Baby" claims that he has never lost an argument, 
though his victories often came through sheer lung 
power. Inherently good-natured, he was an asset to any 
party— some think he was the second son of the second 
son of Bacchus because of his ability to handle all 
"spiritus furmenti," and we were inclined to agree. His 
ambition in life is to retire to the woods of his home 
country and live out his life running a resort on the 
shores of some sparkling pool. To him we say, "The 
best of luck," and, "Save us a room."

PELLA, IOWA 

"None but himself can be his parallel." Joe came to 
Annapolis from a little Dutch community in the middle 
of the vast farmlands of Iowa. He was well known for 
his sharp wit, his discussion of political affairs, and his 
unpredictable antics. No one could point his finger, 
nod his head, and blink his eyes better than Joe when 
he was propounding one of his pet theories on life in 
general. Before coming to Navy, Joe attended both 
Drake University and the University of Iowa where he 
acquired enough knowledge to become one of the bet- 
ter "Bancroft Professors." Many of the perpetual bilgers 
can thank him for having helped them over the rough 
spots. Few of us will forget Joe and his bright wit. We 
all hope that he can retire to his farm to raise corn, 
pigs, and little Dutchmen. 




HUNTINGTON, WEST VIRGINIA 

Hailing from West (By God) Virginia and singing "Way 
Back In The Hills," "Beak" donned his first pair of shoes 
for the trip to Annapolis and took up the ways of Navy 
life to which he responded favorably. With a smile on 
his face and a few Syrian idioms and Joe Miller jokes on 
his tongue, he made those "Navy Days" seem a little 
lighter for all of us. Rog has always been successful with 
the women, but he has really excelled in the cruise 
ports and he therefore hopes for foreign duty only, par- 
ticularly in his Syrian homeland where he can enjoy 
eating kibee, yabrok, or lubany. Whether brewing 
"Mountain Dew," shooting it out with the "revenooers," 
serving beer at Sid's Place, or riding it out on the high 
seas, Beak will be an asset to all those with whom he 
comes in contact.

Joe, a great admirer of the rugged beauty of the West, 
could never get used to the eastern weather. California 
claimed Joe for the ever-nostalgic high school senior 
year and graduation at Santa Anna Senior High School. 
Infantrymen are suprisingly numerous in the Academy, 
and Joe K. was of the ex-mudpushers. He earned the 
Expert Infantry Badge while in Uncle Sam's Army. The 
Navy claimed him before his outfit went overseas, and 
Joe attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School 
at Bainbridge. His ambition is to be a flyboy and re- 
tire at an early age to hunt and fish in the Rockies. Joe 
excelled in the characteristic California sport, tennis, 
and was a star man on the plebe and varsity teams.

BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

The only Navy Junior in his company, Nails bore the 
brunt of the many attacks against his brothers and 
sisters, but he always squinted, scratched his head, and 
managed to come out with a reply that suited the situ- 
ation. He passed his high school days at Severn School, 
where he spent his athletic activities as a member of 
the J. V. lacrosse squad. Nails earns another decoration 
for his B-robe in that he was the baby of his company. 
Aside from decorating said B-robe, Bill's hobbies in- 
cluded hunting and guns. Most of us will remember him 
for his wild escapades at release each night. His favor- 
ite weapon was a pistol— a water pistol at that. When 
it was time to study Bill did just that, for he knew how 
and when to be serious. Bill hopes to follow his Dad's 
footsteps as a serviceman, but he is partial to the 
Marines. 



jRohvri £. Wallers 

OBLONG, ILLINOIS 

With a sly remark to chase the gloom after a grinding 
day, Walt helped to keep life on an even keel in spite 
of academics and the Executive Department. He added 
variety to the lighter side of Academy life with flashes 
of diabolical cleverness and hints on how to beat the 
"system." His jokes, though sometimes bewhiskered and 
excessively corny, were often the cause of aching sides 
and disrupted meals. Usually not given to blowing his 
own horn, Bob nevertheless did a pretty good job of 
bugle blowing for the Drum and Bugle Corps. His com- 
mon sense gave him a firm grip on the business at hand, 
be it la femme, academics, or life in general. From 
Wabash banks to far off shores, his associates will soon 
learn to appreciate the qualities that make this Mini a 
4.0 wife and a valued friend. 



it tilth W. Ward, III 

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE 

"Memph" came to Navy from the Queen City of Dixie, 
full of tales of the Cotton Carnival and the glories of 
the old South. Academics were his chief source of trou- 
ble, but somehow he always managed to pull through 
just when the Math or Steam Departments thought they 
had claimed another victim. He divided his leisure hours 
between reading, writing, and athletics. Although he 
never quite attained varsity status in any sport, there 
were few types of athletics to which Frank didn't apply 
his mind and muscles. He kept most of his numerous 
female acquaintances under wraps during his stay at 
Navy, but whenever he was seen with one of them, she 
was "drag of the week" material. Frank hopes to get 
into the diplomatic or intelligence branches of the ser- 
vice as soon after graduation as possible.

BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN 

Hank, the personification of urbanity and Battle Creek's 
gift to the feminine world, came to the Academy after 
sixteen months as a V-12er ("Victory in twelve years or 
we fight") at Ohio Wesleyan University. While there he 
pleged Sigma Chi fraternity and enjoyed gridiron promi- 
nence; injuries kept him out of football here but failed 
to dim his enthusiasm for the sport. Mention should be 
made in passing of his prowess with the foaming liquid, 
for few could contest his speed at "pouring them down," 
and some have found it fatal to try. He was always the 
life of the party and wherever you find him you were 
sure to find a party or at least a bull session. Hank's 
inate love of flying should make him a find for Naval 
Aviation, and his ready smile and humorous spirit will 
take him far.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA 

The "Bear" was a charter member of the radiator squad 
who hailed from way down South in Clearwater, Flor- 
ida. He had no sooner started a tour in the Merchant 
Marine when his appointment came through and he 
decided to view sea life with the Navy. Soon after, 
Fred decided he thought a lot more of Clearwater Bay, 
where he spent his leaves on an aqua-plane, water 
skiis, or in a sail boat, but not on a destroyer. During 
two years at the University of North Carolina and Van- 
derbilt University, he had concentrated on his pre-law 
course and the SAE fraternity. At the Academy he got 
a big kick out of playing push-ball and fieldball, and 
could often be found on either the company soccer or 
cross-country teams. Another interest and problem to 
him were women.

HAYS, KANSAS 

Jim's quest for ever greater truths carried him first to 
Topeka High School, and then to Washburn University 
for two years. Unruffled by the trials of Plebe Year and 
Naval indoctrination, he emerged a dragging young- 
ster. Anything but a slave to academics, he launched 
himself on a social career paralleled by few with his 
typical carefree approach, and for Jim a non-dragging 
weekend was a complete failure. While passing time 
between weekends, Jim was not idle, varying his activi- 
ties from the break-neck fieldball competition through 
the milder sports to a crack game of bridge. Jim's in- 
exhaustible good humor will make him a welcome ad- 
dition to any function, be it a hop or a bull session, 
formal reception or a beer bust.

SIOUX CITY, IOWA 

This Phi Delt joined our ranks after thirteen months of 
dot-dashing with the Fleet. The Blade still raves about 
his one year as a Chem major at Iowa State, where he, 
like all good chemists, was an A.S.C.E. member. Since 
the completion of Youngster Cruise Jack has been an 
avid explorer, dragging or snaking at all the hops, and 
the second River Bank twin. Savoir of the first order, 
Jack felt no pain with steam kits, slipsticks, Nav charts, 
and math books. His 6' 2" frame fitted well into the 
number seven slot of any shell and he spent many after- 
noons and Saturdays rowing up and down the Severn 
with Buck Walsh and the boys. Since the Blade's hob- 
bies are golf, music and co-eds, the tall boy from Iowa 
will make hosts of friends anywhere.

CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA 

After graduation from high school, Zim completed a 
year at Georgia Tech, majoring in chemical engineering, 
before he took the road to Navy. Ed is a rather good- 
sized fellow, and was a star fullback for Miami Edison, 
but a questionable knee kept him from the varsity, so 
he showed his worth on the batt and company teams in 
football, cross country, and tennis. Not a "Red Mike" 
by any means, but as yet having no definite attach- 
ments, he was right in there pitching all the time. Where 
academics were concerned, it was a well-known fact 
that the bearings on his slipstick were always well- 
oiled. Ed's easy-going attitude has made him well liked, 
and his broad background, coupled with his native 
ability, gives him the stuff to do well whatever he tries.

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

Eddie Woods, Navy Junior and loyal Vermonter, was 
born way out in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he must cer- 
tainly have learned to swim before he took his first 
walking steps. He could be found any and every after- 
noon over in the natatorium, stroking and kicking, lap 
after lap— or possibly going through some type of 
strenuous exercise along the side of the pool. Whether 
on belly or back his purpose was always to work him- 
self up to the point of being able to swim the farthest, 
the fastest. This former Mercersburg Academy swim cap- 
tain also attended NAPS before coming to Navy. Here 
his recreation time not spent in swimming was used 
for company soccer and yawl sailing. Next to making 
like a duck, his greatest weaknesses were football and 
music.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA 

If you'd like to meet a fellow who often wondered why 
he exchanged the carefree life of Centenary College 
for the regimented existence of Navy— if you're looking 
for an enthusiastic teammate for any sport from ping- 
pong to football, for someone who was always ready 
for a hand of bridge and who swore that in the long 
run he broke even in penny-ante, for a guy who looked 
forward to Christmas leave with its prospects of bird- 
hunting in the fields of Louisiana— if you'd like someone 
to drag with who would make the evening a success, 
even if the girl failed, one whose southern blend of 
accent, good nature, and sense of humor couldn't be 
resisted— if this rare combination of southern charm and 
versatility appeals to you as much as it did to his class- 
mates—Look up Smiley!

WARTRACE, TENNESSEE 

From that fatal day early in September 1945, when ex- 
aviation cadet "Buzz-saw" Edwardo first laid his then 
twenty-twenty eyes on Bancroft, he was recognized by 
the jaunty, non-military air corps tilt of his cap. Born 
in Wartrace, population slightly over several dozen, he 
would probably be there to this day if the war hadn't 
intervened. In 1943 he entered Naval Aviation, where 
he was exposed to the great wide world, and by the 
time he got to Pensacola, he had a vast knowledge of 
all the finer things in life. Here he soon became known 
as Edwardo, largely due to his vast and all-inclusive 
knowledge of Spanish. His ambition was once to be a 
lawyer, and to prove his natural ability, he would argue 
either side of almost any question, never admitting 
defeat.

TEANECK, NEW JERSEY 

Mole is definitely not the son of a biology prof who 
named his offspring after rodents. Before he gave Navy 
a break, Mole attended Princeton where he was presi- 
dent of his class and played on the football team. 
Princeton's distresses spelled Navy's successes. His ex- 
cellent academic background gave him time for his two 
loves, music and sports. Mole's ability for teamwork 
and his never-say-die style of playing won him starting 
positions on both the soccer and lacrosse teams. He 
was often happily engaged in playing some of his 
favorite Chopin on the nearest piano. Fond as he is of 
the submariner's way of life, Mole has our vote if the 
silent service desires a not too silent but sincere and 
able member.

AAINOT, NORTH DAKOTA 

Before coming to Navy, Al spent a profitable two years 
at the College of St. Thomas and Marquette University. 
At the Academy, he was a good athlete, and a main- 
stay on several company sports squads, including the 
volleyball and basketball teams. Al was proud of his 
Red Mike status, and never gave the femmes much of a 
break, but instead spent many of his weekends over on 
the golf course, getting closer and closer to par figures. 
A power hitter at heart, he still coolly sank those long 
putts to collect many nickels. Whenever any bull ses- 
sion slowed down, Al could always be counted on to 
throw in a gem or two of his dead-pan humor and start 
it off again. Al's unquenchable wit and sincerity have 
won him many friends here, and will be one of his 
strongest assets in the Fleet. 



John M m*m* 

ROCHESTER, TEXAS 

We will always remember in John his distinguished 
Texas drawl, his indescribable laugh, and his common 
sense approach to any problem or topic of discussion. 
His three years of engineering study at Texas A & M 
and at Tulane University were a perfect preparatory 
course for the Academy, for his only academic worry 
was Dago— 3.4 that is! Company sports managers were 
always glad to have John on their teams, but 150 pound 
football was his specialty. The girls worried more over 
him than he did over them, but John seldom missed a 
good dragging weekend. John's most serious concern 
during his four years at Annapolis was a weighing of 
the comparative advantages between the life of a Na- 
val Officer and that of a Texas farmer. 




JL Jl ffiarihotomaw, Jr. 

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE 

Navy Tech's most ardent admirer of the soil was the 
distinction claimed by Bart, and few contested this title. 
Who else grew corn and potatoes in window boxes and 
seriously contemplated turning an empty room next door 
into a hatchery so that he could eat southern fried 
chicken between meals? Whenever one heard the strains 
of "The Midnight Special" or any other hillbilly tune 
floating down the corridors, it was pretty certain that 
Bart was the source of disturbance, strumming his be- 
loved guitar and bellowing in his pleasant nasal voice. 
Besides farming, mechanical ability came naturally to 
Bart. He was a member of the Mechanical Engineering 
Club, and much of his spare time was spent repairing 
radios, phonographs, picking locks, or mastering the 
practical applications of electricity.

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI 

After attending Paseo High in K. C, Bernie had a year 
of preparatory work before coming to Navy. Plebe Year 
found his extra-curricular activities including plebe cross 
country, and that was followed by three more years of 
intramural competition in such sports as batt football, 
and company soccer, volleyball, and touch football. 
Bernie was never fazed by studies, for all were taken 
in stride, and evening study hours found him in the sack 
as early as possible, and early was always possible. 
Although quiet, he was not without his humorous side 
—at the end of Plebe Year, one of his more talkative 
classmates commented, "You must not have said more 
than a dozen words all year," whereupon Bernie re- 
plied in a confidential tone and with a humorous glint 
in his eye, "You should have known me before I came 
here." 




James U\ Jiwt&r 

CABOAL, MISSOURI 

Jim came to the Academy after completing three years 
in mechanical engineering at the University of Missouri 
and S.M.U. With this background, he was usually over 
helping a plebe work a math prob while his classmates 
were puzzling over the next day's steam drawings. A 
true friend in every sense of the word, he never failed 
to impress those he met with his honest, unassuming 
manner. An all around good athlete, Jim nevertheless, 
chose to be a spectator during most of his time at Navy. 
His prowess at the bridge table was unquestionable, 
and plebe and first classman alike sought him for a 
partner. Then, seemingly to round out a perfect per- 
sonality, Jim was also a lover of music— swing, popular, 
or classical. A valuable addition to the Navy, he has 
his success in the Fleet assured. 









iiUMi€*\ Ml J>4>ti*<nt. Jr. 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

A true-blue Southern Californian, Frank never tired of 
upholding the glories of that state against all would-be 
detractors. A fine athlete, he was a whiz on the tennis 
courts, and could be compared to a member of the 
finny tribe when placed in his natural habitat, the water. 
Even though most of his time here was spent writing 
long, eloquent letters to that cute little brunette in 
'Frisco, he was well able to hold his own academically, 
and even had time left to pursue photography and seri- 
ous music, his two chief interests. His troubles with the 
execs were almost nil, thanks mainly to his happy ability 
to sleep most of the time, thereby keeping out of harm's 
way. Frank's well-balanced outlook on life has made 
him many friends, and should stand him well in the 
future.

LIMA, PERU 

Wine, women and soccer. His excellent record on the 
soccer field may, however, be overshadowed by his 
performance in his other two extra-curricular activities. 
Manolo came to us from Peru after spending two and 
a half years at the Peruvian Naval Academy. Plebe 
year was spent running the upperclasses— Peruvian style 
—with his appropriate Spanish phrases that only he 
could understand. Academics were never a strain, for 
Manolo was number one in Peru. In years to come we 
shall find Manolo in the Peruvian Navy. All of his 
friends heartily agree that he will be a fine officer, a 
credit to his country, his Navy and his family. A liberty 
in Lima will find us with Manolo for his friendships are 
sincere and lasting.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

With two and a half years in subs behind him, Mike was 
already well acquainted with the Navy when he en- 
tered the academy. Although at times he had diffi- 
culties, he always managed to beat the departments, 
leaving time for plebe and batt swimming and making 
those justly-famous pots of joe. His scrapbooks and 
mail gave good evidence of his success with the femmes 
—some attributed that success to his big brown eyes, 
but those who were in the know were aware that it 
was the ready flow of conversation which appeared 
magically in the presence of the fair sex that was his 
great asset. If Mike has any time left over after conning 
pigboats in the fleet, he's sure to use these qualities to 
their best advantage. 



William M. ffilach 

UPPER DARBY, PENNSYLVANIA 

Bill was probably one of the best known midshipmen 
at the Academy. Four years of football and varsity 
heavyweight wrestling have made him myriads of friends 
which he kept with his easy-going personality. Bill's 
hobbies were appeasing his dainty appetite and up- 
holding the honors of his native Pennsylvania. He at- 
tended high school in Shenandoah before coming to 
us via the University of Pennsylvania. Bill must have 
been quite a man with the ladies while at Penn if the 
prowess he has since exhibited can be considered a 
criterion. It is said that there are those who consider 
him a "God, Greek". We all predict a bright future 
for this easy-going, friendly guy who has been a true 
friend to us all and a perfect room mate.

PENNINGTON GAP, VIRGINIA 

"Blackie" prepped for the Naval Academy by spending 
a year at the Virginia Military Institute. Here his 
strength of purpose and quiet but firm determination 
won for him the respect, admiration, and friendship of 
his classmates. His active high school interests in athletics 
and newspaper management were combined here when 
he became one of the football managers. That his trust- 
worthiness and capability of taking routine action rather 
than procrastinating were appreciated is evidenced by 
the fact that he was elected a varsity football co-man- 
ager in his First Class Year. Blackie carries with him to 
the Fleet the same trustworthiness and easy-going 
friendliness that have been long cultivated during his 
stay here. 






J>aml §1. />o#/#/». Jr. 

FORT MITCHELL, KENTUCKY 

When "P. R." traded his bell bottoms for the double- 
breasted blue serge, he never let the Navy forget that, 
academics notwithstanding, he was going to come out 
of the Academy right-side up. Despite the Navy's usu- 
ally faulty manner along such lines, that methodical 
manner hypnotized enough profs to keep him set and 
satisfied. Rare was the day when he couldn't be found 
in the vicinity of the soccer field, the mat, or the golf 
course, as both his proficiency in each and his over 
supply of equipment for the same showed. Maybe it 
was a couple of years at Lawrenceville and a year of 
brushing salt off a peacoat that made him high grease 
man in the room and kept two indigent wives watching 
him for the latest word. P. R. leaves Navy with a strong 
following and a bright future. 



Dvnatd JS. ffiostew/ 

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND 

Formerly a fleet man and a survivor of the perennial 
battle of Poly vs. City, Boz came to Navy to recuperate. 
He ably upheld his home town's name as the star center 
halfback of the varsity soccer team and on the batt 
lacrosse team, where he shone at midfield. Those were 
not the limits of his athletic ability, however, for his 
swimming, bowling, and pinochle playing were of the 
best. Despite his full schedule of academic and athletic 
interests, Don occasionally found time to show his artis- 
tic side with the products of his gift of sketching. In our 
future voyages in life and the Service, we will find, as 
we have in the past, that time spent with Boz will be 
very pleasant, whether it be in the line of duty, or in 
the pursuit of pleasure on liberty.

SALEM, OHIO 

A former subman, Billy surfaced in time to take the 
entrance examinations and enter the Academy with 
the rest of the 49ers. His fleet experience must have 
been valuable because Beetle never failed to make 
friends of his acquaintances in Bancroft Hall. Although 
he didn't believe in mental strain, he was an ardent 
exponent of physical exercise. His powerful little phy- 
sique enabled him to remain on the plebe gym team 
as a rope climber and was no doubt the reason for his 
being on the championship 150 pound touch football 
team Youngster Year. Like many of us, Billy's plans 
for the future are not definite yet, but it is more than 
likely that the submarine service will see more of this 
likeable lad from Ohio. 



/I. ClawU ffioughton Mil 

EVANSTON, ILLINOIS 

One May Day a new light shone over Cleveland, Ohio; 
our Ace was born. Migrating to Chicago when but a 
wee lad, he quickly found himself. His love of mimickry 
guided him to the stage of Loyola Academy. Leaving 
Loyola for a prep school, old "Purity Boughton" made 
his mark at Severn, playing JV football and lacrosse and 
again finding time for the stage. Upon entering the 
Academy, he quickly discovered a place for his talents 
with the Musical Clubs Shows and the Masqueraders, 
not to mention his fine work as MC of the smokers and 
his place on the Brigade Activities Committee. So with 
graduation we say farewell to the "Old Ace", a credit 
to his family, his school, and the Navy Air Corps, his 
shining star. 




DODGE CENTER, MINNESOTA 

Giving up a promising career in the Army, first as a 
private in the Infantry and then an aviation cadet, for 
that of a Naval officer was a big step in Lou's life. When 
he began Plebe Year, pushing a slide rule came as 
nothing new after the University of Minnesota, Cornell, 
and Michigan State. His hobbies were photography, 
dancing, and charming beautiful women— to say that 
he was an explorer would be an understatement. As an 
active participant in sports and extra-curricular activi- 
ties including LUCKY BAG representative Lou soon 
gained the respect of his classmates as being both ca- 
pable and likeable. His natural traits should assure 
him success in his chosen career of a Naval aviator.

Carl §1. Jirandl 

YORK, PENNSYLVANIA 

Called "Chaunce" by his friends, he brought to the 
Naval Academy personality, a sense of humor, and in- 
herent ability— both athletic and scholastic. Already hav- 
ing had two and a half years of mechanical engineering 
at Franklin and Marshall and Duke University under 
the Navy V-12 program behind him before entrance to 
the Academy, Chaunce was particularly well qualified 
for the work at Navy. He proved his athletic versatility 
by being an outstanding player on his battalion foot- 
ball team and his company basketball and softball 
teams. His understanding and cooperation coupled with 
his sense of humor and his love for fun, which have 
won him an untold number of lasting friends, will always 
stand him in good stead— wherever he goes or whatever 
he does. 




William §1. ffirouahtvn 

CHASE CITY, VIRGINIA 

Willie entered the Naval Academy via Bullis Prep and 
NTC Bainbridge, Md. During his Plebe Year he became 
interested in yawl sailing and spent much of his free 
time working toward his command qualification, which 
he obtained when he was a youngster. His musical abil- 
ity found an outlet in the concert band where he played 
the trombone. The varsity rifle team, battalion football, 
company cross-country and soccer teams left very little 
time for the radiator squad. His unselfishness and will- 
ingness to help a classmate made many friends for him, 
and his classmates will remember Bill for his subtle wit, 
musical ability, and the true Southern courtesy which 
made the Dark Ages a little less dreary for everyone.

EAST LIVERPOOL, OHIO 

Undoubtedly one of the greatest radio "bugs" ever to 
come to the Naval Academy, Bob has thrived for four 
years on coils, tubes, and all sorts of radio gear. A 
product of the Buckeye State, Bob studied at Culver 
Military Academy and M. I. T. before coming to Navy. 
Besides bringing to the Academy his excellent know- 
how in things learned, Bob also brought a passionate in- 
terest in photography and music. His talents did not stop 
at radio and music, though, for he was active in sports 
such as cross-country, gymnastics, and squash. His per- 
sistence in finishing everything he undertook earned for 
him the appreciation of all of his many friends. Bob will 
long be remembered for his warm friendship and sin- 
cerity by all those who knew him.

MORA, MINNESOTA 

Born in the thriving metropolis of Mora (pop. 1596), 
Ralph came to us after serving two years in that fight- 
ing group, the U. S. Marines. Fearing nothing save the 
yearly physicals— it was rumored that he practiced Yoga 
to keep his blood pressure down— R. H. drove Juice profs 
into a tizzy, Steam profs to a frazzle, and his wife to 
distraction. Early Youngster Year he was frustrated by 
an over zealous Minneapolis lass, and became a con- 
firmed Red Mike. As such, he spent his weekends at 
the local cinema, or Al's, partaking of his favorite deli- 
cacy, cheeseburgers. R. H. is Crimson and Gold through 
and through, so, as might be expected, he's going back 
to the Corps, his first and true love— it would surprise 
none of us if he became the first five star General-Com- 
mandant of the Marine Corps.

William J. ffiudgc 

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA 

Bill's forte was the humor department, where his caustic 
remarks and animal imitations won him a permanent 
place among the Bancroft funnymen. Bill carried over 
with him from Bullis Prep and high school his interest in 
football, and his ability and experience combined to win 
him a place on the JV squad. When unable to play his 
favorite sport, he could usually be found closeted with 
the grapplers in the wrestling loft. Whether in the 
Wardroom Mess or in the halls, where his battle cry 
was "Got any chow?", he proved a Trojan in eating. 
The strong silent type, he never said much about his 
feminine admirers, but those letters from Illinois and 
New Jersey proved him no Red Mike. With his deter- 
mination and good nature, he will fill his place in the 
Marine Corps well.

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 

Silence is golden— but in these days of nuclear fission 
and redeemed alchemy, you never know what you have. 
Split "Silent Bush" into his component parts and the 
result would be plenty of decibels. The "Senator" from 
Mississippi is a man of action. In two and a half years 
of horizontal duty, he finally got his class numerals, 
company soccer. Before P-works, "B. A." was either 
busily absorbed in Esquire or raucously blasting on a 
sour harmonica. On weekends, Bel Ami emanated per- 
sonality for the craving fairer sex. (And occasionally 
the not too fairer sex— what a bricking party!) But B. A.'s 
heart belongs to the Navy Air Corps; his successful ca- 
reer will be a natural consequence of his charming, 
easy-going manner and his ready wit.

APPLETON, WISCONSIN 

Bush was an all-around athlete and all year round it 
was football. For three years Bush quarterbacked the 
150 pound football team to their championships and 
for four years he spent his Sunday morning happy hour 
with the sports page following his native Wisconsin 
eleven. Bush never gave the Academic Departments a 
chance, for his will to study kept his rotors spinning in 
the right direction. Coming from the midwest, Bush 
never found much time for these eastern city girls, sav- 
ing the better things of life for leave. After graduation 
we shall find Bush in the silent service where his silent 
smile shall again surround him with friends. Having 
great faith in his beliefs, Bush has left many sincere 
friends at Navy. 






Hennvih #H. Cam 

SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA 

The education of K.M.C. was a splendid example of the 
many— ah— contacts that go into the making of a mod- 
ern young man. His saga included Kentucky, Arkansas, 
and the San Bernardino valley. During the late un- 
pleasantness, "K" Carr ran his LCVP aground many 
times in the far reaches of the Western Pacific, whence 
the Navy sent him to the University of Jonesville and 
a cataclysmic encounter. The subsequent guerrila war- 
fare between K and his inamorata has been the subject 
of more discussion than Maryland weather. He had 
more than his share of hospital time, a host of friends, 
and a reputation as one of the best softball pitchers 
in Bancroft. Graduation leaves the round man gazing 
wistfully at the construction industry as he dons his 
shoulder boards and raises his right hand. 



/SttlhiHttj J". Coburn 

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT 

Tony left his table down at Maury's, deserted the hal- 
lowed halls of old Eli, and brought his infectious smile 
to Navy. A sturdy New Englander with an abounding 
love of life, he looked every problem (redheads pre- 
ferred) squarely in the eye. After he starred Plebe Year, 
his mechanical mind led to an abiding interest in Radio 
and a locker littered with old condensers. On the 
blood-bathed soccer fields of Hospital Point, Tony 
mangled many a shin fighting for the glory of the Tenth. 
But it was out where College Creek and the Severn 
join to form the Chesapeake that he came into his own, 
and whether it was a dragging weekend or just an over- 
night race, Tony could be found in the first yawl to 
leave its moorings. Whether sailing, courting, or at 
academics, Tony will always steer a winning course.

Jam&M J. Connors 

PATCHOQUE, L. I., NEW YORK 

J. J. spent a year at Notre Dame prior to his entry in 
Navy Tech, majoring in mechanical engineering, and 
taking an active part in the Glee Club and Band. At 
the Naval Academy he proved his unlimited ability by 
participating in plebe football and soccer and com- 
pany football, baseball, and basketball, in addition to 
his work with the Serenaders and Glee Club. His popu- 
larity among his own company members was evidenced 
by his repeatedly being chosen as their company repre- 
sentative to fight their official, and sometimes un- 
official, battles for them. With his heart set on the 
Marine Corps and Aviation, Jim goes forth from the 
Naval Academy with the eyes of a host of friends 
upon him. 



MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY 

"Satchmo" and "King Oliver" were but a few of the 
nicknames Ollie acquired as a result of his undying love 
of America's music, "Le Jazz Hot." Although he hailed 
from the Athens of America, his natural habitats were a 
few select New York nightclubs, where he could be 
found most weekends revelling in "Dixieland." Despite 
his coming direct from high school, he did quite well 
academically, especially in the liberal arts courses, 
with Spanish and history as his specialties. Even though 
he was hampered on working on his hobby his first two 
years here because of lack of a phonograph, he more 
than made up for lost time after the start of Second 
Class Year. His extensive record collection provided 
many enjoyable hours for all and there was no doubt 
that he convinced many of the merits of jazz. 




mtan ffi. Cooper 

RIVERTON, NEW JERSEY 

"A. B." came to us from Riverton, N. J. (We cannot find 
it in the latest atlas) after absorbing two years "doing 
or dying" for dear old Rutgers. A look at the back of 
Al's B-robe could tell you what his great interests was 
—sports. As varsity guard for three years on our 
championship 150 lb. football team, with battalion 
bowling and track in the spring, he was in shape from 
October until June Week. His wives were constantly an- 
noyed by his huge correspondence with the fairer sex. 
He kept the Bancroft Hall post office busy with letters 
to all points in the U. S., and after our European cruises 
his postage stamp bills reached the proportions of our 
national budget. Al plans to enter the submarine service 
on graduation and with his friendliness and willingness 
to help others, his success is only a matter of time.

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS 

Leaving behind him three diamonds as Colonel of his 
high school ROTC, Charlie laid the foundation for his 
Naval career by prepping at the University of Texas. 
At Texas he picked up an uncanny knowledge of Span- 
ish and sharpened his natural ability at composition. 
At Navy he divided his spare time between Glee Club 
activities, company sports, dragging and keeping up 
his Academy scrapbook. His friends will remember him 
as a man who took his work seriously and operated 
within the bounds of the Reg book, but who was always 
the first to see the humor in any situation. His prime 
asset was his consistent good humor, which showed up 
in his ready smile and optimistic outlook. With his sin- 
cerity, his high ideals, and his natural ability, he will 
go a long way on any course he sets.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

For any unusual fact, he is your man. With a back- 
ground obtained from Broadway High, broadened by 
college life in an NROTC unit at the University of Wash- 
ington, Stan soon proved to all that he had more than 
just attended those institutions. Initiating a bridge game, 
aiding a bucket involved with a prob, or seeking a so- 
lution in horizontal engineering were all in order during 
the leisure hours. With the week's studying done, the 
Hyde to Jekyll transformation came regularly at noon 
Saturday in anticipation of some young thing. Always 
an entertaining raconteur, Stan will produce many a 
chuckle over the morning cup of coffee with the same 
cheerful energy which will earn him recognition in the 
line. 




ftudolph 1. DMtnbwiM 

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND 

Rudy, forewarned of the academic rigors of Academy 
life, took care of that phase with study at Providence 
College, and that, coupled with his natural ability, left 
him with little to fear in that line. He was also forewarned 
of the trials of Plebe Year, but his well-developed biceps 
proved that in that case, forewarned was not forearmed. 
Rudy's athletic endeavors were on the track and the 
soccer field, where, in the latter, he was a company 
star, and in the former, he worked with the varsity. On 
the social side he took in a hop once in a while, but 
preferred playing the field to settling down. His major 
troubles here came from his love for the sack, especially 
and unfortunately between reveille and breakfast. He 
is definitely a thirty-year man, with his main ideas on 
the future concentrated on subs.

HOLLY GROVE, ARKANSAS 

J. P. was the original AOL Arkansas traveler. During 
Plebe and Youngster Years, J. P. started the New Year 
with thirty days confinement for his hometown, Holly 
Grove, and Snip, his OAO, just didn't want to let him 
go. Coming to us from Staunton Military Academy and 
the University of Arkansas, J. P. had little trouble with 
the academics. Jim was one of the outstanding ends 
on the championship 150 pound football team and 
when not chasing a football, he could be found in the 
darkroom. Jim always found friends and was always 
willing to make a fourth for bridge. Upon graduation 
Jim will trade his two present wives for one and so long 
as Arkansas stays in the Union, we will find Jim a thirty- 
year man.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Here's a man of whom Brooklyn may well be proud. He 
attended Brooklyn Poly for three years, after high 
school, and his record as captain of Poly's wrestling 
team pointed to his later achievements here. Then Chuck 
enlisted in the Navy, and entered on a fleet appoint- 
ment after a year. His outstanding specialty was sports, 
and he easily excelled at any he undertook. Athletic 
awards for wrestling and 150-pound football attested 
to his proficiency in that line. His classmates have en- 
vied his way with the women many times, for his choice 
seemed infallible— just ask somebody about those Euro- 
pean liberties on Second Class Cruise. Never one to 
take a strain with academics, Chuck had a knack for 
learning things easily. The Navy will gain a valuable 
and popular officer at his graduation. 



John <J1 /><?>& soi# 

BELL CENTER, WISCONSIN 

Dobby entered the Academy after a year at Lawrence 
College in the V-12 program, where he earned a letter 
in track running the mile. He continued his track work 
at Navy in cross country and track, but his running ca- 
reer was ended when during leave Second Class Year 
he contracted phlebitis in his left leg. Academics have 
never bothered Dobby very much and he has always 
managed to stand high in his class. Dobby was no Red 
Mike by any means, but no one could take the place 
of his OAO back home. He was the Navy's guinea pig 
for sea sick pills, but all efforts for him to win over the 
bounding main proved useless. He has faith in the 
Navy as a career and hopes someday his stomach con- 
quers the sea.

With Army experiences ranging from the comfortable 
ASTP unit of Wayne University to a paratrooper's life 
in Europe, via the Infantry and Signal Corps, and 
backed by two years of studying at Carnegie Tech, it 
was only natural that Harry should take all the aspects 
of the Academy in stride. Arriving "with an anxiety for 
his failing eyes and adopting a theory that first things 
should come first, he limited his studying to a minimum 
and devoured any and all periodicals. Judicious ap- 
plication in this last mentioned field of undergraduate 
endeavor gave a whopping knowledge of current 
events, several awards in that line, and an ability to 
converse on almost any subject. In truth, Harry will be 
remembered as much for his fun-loving arguments as 
for his high sense of morals and winning personality. 






James Jl. Doaoian 

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 

Born and raised in the sunny hills of California, Jim 
needed many rainstorms before he finally became ac- 
climatized at Navy. Most of the gang knew him as the 
guy who would work that too-tough prob when torn 
from the daily cross-word puzzle. Active with the var- 
sity basketball squad, Jim could be seen every winter 
racing down court with the ball in Dahlgren, wonder- 
ing why he had smoked that last cigarette in Bancroft. 
Weekends usually found him dragging or pursuing his 
hobby, golf, on the course across the river. He had one 
source of frustration— as a rationalist, he never could 
see why rainclothes would be the prescribed uniform 
when the sun was shining. Jim goes to the Fleet with 
his eyes on Naval Aviation. That Irish smile and an 
abundance of common sense will make him admired 
and respected always.

ELKINS PARK, PA. 

"Laugh a minute" Kurt did much to brighten up our four 
years at Navy; his practical jokes and witty remarks 
turned many study hours into minor riots. He was a 
motor machinist's mate second for over two years in 
the Navy before coming to Navy Tech. Kurt was on the 
varsity sailing team— scuttlebutt says it was the almost 
year-round training table that attracted him to the sea- 
going sport. Whenever he tore himself away from his 
beloved sack, he would be out on the bay skippering a 
yawl. Kurt had his serious side too, and appreciated 
music, books, and the legitimate theater. He could quiet 
down when the occasion demanded, and when he did 
he came up with many gems of wisdom. His pleasant 
outlook on life qualifies him as a good shipmate in any 
man's Navy.

BETHESDA, MARYLAND 

John was one of those who excel in everything they try. 
From an academic standpoint, he was a star man who 
specialized in proving that one needn't be a college 
graduate to succeed at Navy. His executive ability 
brought him the presidency of the French Club and the 
job of secretary of the Mechanical Engineering Club. 
On the athletic field, he starred at company soccer. As 
well, he always had time for such hobbies as photog- 
raphy and aeronautics, this last earning him the title 
of "Flyboy"— that he rated the title was born out by 
the fact that he was the only man to enter Navy while 
wearing the uniform of a first sergeant in the Civil Air 
Patrol Cadets. Those who knew him will never forget 
his week by week battle with a water gun or his adven- 
tures at the Carlsburg breweries. 




FORT WAYNE, INDIANA 

Skipping college, Bucky came straight to Navy from 
his Fort Wayne High School. The sincerity and con- 
genial personality that he brought along earned him 
many close friends. Buck was never satisfied with his 
grades; he always hastened to apologize for them as 
he cooled his slide rule. After the home town girl, his 
chief interests were bridge, good music, sailboats, model 
airplanes, and touch football. As a model airplane de- 
signer, his theories were often challenged but seldom 
disproved. Casting aside the prospect of aviation as 
his eyesight dimmed, Buck joined the M.E. club and 
looked forward to engineering. Buck's efficiency and 
the energy with which he attacks his responsibilities en- 
sure him a valuable and diversified career. 




Robert £. ^awicy 

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA 

Bob's winning smile and helpful way made him a wel- 
come addition to our midst late in Plebe Summer. While 
most of us were content to struggle solely with aca- 
demics, Bob had time for everything, and few of the 
Academy's activities escaped the scope of his literary 
and artistic talent. His unbounded energy and un- 
flagging zeal for finishing the job made him a valuable 
member of the Art Club and the Public Relations Com- 
mittee, while his work as editor of the Trident Calen- 
dar and the cartoons with the Faricy by-line are well- 
remembered by all. Bob's captivating manner wasn't 
limited to his classmates, however, for he had a par- 
ticularly fetching attraction for the girls and made little 
noticeable effort to undo nature's blessing. His con- 
tinual regard for his associates will serve him well in 
the Fleet.

CLINTON, IOWA 

"A book of verses underneath the bough, a jug of wine, 
a loaf of bread and thou beside me, singing in the 
wilderness—" Omar had the words to characterize a 
fun-loving fellow who enjoyed the richness and pleas- 
ures of life. Those features all could be found in vary- 
ing degrees in Les. Those things alone didn't tell the 
whole story, for the picture wouldn't be complete with- 
out mentioning his notorious weakness for bridge, his 
favorite prone position while meditating with his eyes 
closed, or the generous contributions he made to his 
friends during the football season. Perhaps in twenty 
years Les will be found teaching the pleasures of Eng- 
lish literature to another generation, still cursing the 
Math and engineering endured at Annapolis. 




(Horace $P. Jishm*gn 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

After a year at Penn, Pete came to Navy with a tennis 
racquet where his right arm should have been. From 
Plebe Year on, he was a mainstay of the tennis team, 
and almost any free time would find him out on the 
courts winning pints of ice cream from the other players. 
Even during leave, he found time to win a few tourna- 
ments in Philadelphia. When it came to academics, Pete 
had the system down cold, and managed to cross all 
the rivers without too much difficulty. He maintained 
that at least part of his academic success was due to 
the two packs of cigarettes per day, while a few ciga- 
rettes before and during a tennis match were indispen- 
sable to victory. Whatever the reason, he always came 
through against Army, and has the B-robes and trophies 
to prove it. 





BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA 

Don, a true southerner, came into our midst one fateful 
September morning after spending over two years at 
the Virginia Military Institute. After his time at V.M.I., 
this military stuff was nothing new to him, although, 
to say the least, he didn't thrive on it. Having been 
successful in football at V.M.I., he went out his first 
two years at Navy, but on finding that it took too much 
time that could be devoted to other things, he dropped 
it. Don's interests in life were many— both blonde and 
brunette, and he was never known to miss a dragging 
weekend. Due to his previous college, the only academic 
trouble he might have had was due to a tendency to 
de-emphasize studies. On weekends he could always 
be counted on for a party, and in this way made life 
much more liveable for both himself and his friends.

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

Although John played JV football at Severn after at- 
tending Calvin Coolidge High, upon arrival here he 
found sailing more to his liking, and soon gained a po- 
sition on the varsity dinghy team due to his proficiency 
in that sport. Almost every afternoon we could see 
"J. B." leaving for the dinghy float, wearing his usual 
dungarees and foul-weather jacket. To supplement his 
argumentative abilities, he had an analytical mind, and 
this scientific approach was of considerable value in the 
daily battle of wits with the Steam Department. Never 
one for "going steady," John, although he has dragged 
considerably, has made no promises as yet. The sub- 
marine service will gain a valuable and well-liked officer 
in his graduation, since it has long been one of John's 
ambitions to specialize in the underwater branch of the 
Navy.

Al, who was better known to his classmates as the 
"Human Greyhound," both for his ability on the track 
and for his academic prowess, always seemed to be 
able to turn out "10-flat hundreds" just as easily as 4.0 
P-works. However, he didn't limit himself to track and 
starring in academics— sleep, women, and batt football, 
in that order, also played a part of his life here. Al- 
though starting as a Red Mike, he later joined the ranks 
of the Flying Squadron. If Al had spent less time worry- 
ing about his hair line and more about the reg book, the 
E. D. squad probably wouldn't have seen him so much. 
Al's ambitions for his Navy career aren't very grandiose 
—all he wants is a permanent billet at the Brooklyn 
Navy Yard. 



Channing Qawdn&r 

DULUTH, MINNESOTA 

One year at the Michigan School of Mines and another 
as a seaman first class left Chan well prepared for 
all aspects of life at Navy. Academics were never a 
strain; after evening meal, he usually skipped over 
the next day's lesson, and then turned to one of his 
many tomes and treatises on philosophy. Dragging 
weekends usually found Chan in the sack; but on liberty, 
his love of a good time and boundless energy came to 
the fore. We will remember Chan best for his deliberate 
speech and action and the inimitable loping gait. His 
lethargic manner never fooled his friends, who acquired 
cut throats as a result of his orderly, analytical mind, 
and bruised limbs from his proficiency in soccer and 
lacrosse. Chan's competence in all matters, and his 
ability to get along with everyone are assurances of 
his future success.

Four years ago, Jack was sworn into the Naval Service 
with a broad, pearly grin on his face, and during the 
ensuing, oftentimes monotonous grind, he was seldom 
seen without that same happy face. Better company 
was not to be found for a breeze session, a card game, 
or a song fest. A proud and true member of the show- 
me state, Matt was never satisfied with the facts alone; 
he had to know the reasons behind them. Although 
possessed with musical talent, Jack decided Youngster 
Year to lay aside the violin and devote his time and 
energy to other interests, namely drags, company sports, 
and graduation from the Naval Academy. After the 
Academy he hopes to begin his career in the submarine 
service or aboard cans.

SPRING LAKE, NEW JERSEY 

Beau was always rushed despite his desire to remain 
tranquil. His last minute showers usually had him grop- 
ing for a towel when the formation bell rang, and he 
ran anchor man on the Flying Squadron. The cartoons 
and art work Beau created for the LOG and Trident 
Calender reflected his sharp sense of humor and his 
love of female beauty. Beau studied as little as possible, 
although his final standings seldom betrayed this fact. 
Stirring classical music as well as foot-tapping jazz were 
equally pleasing to Beau if well played, and his own 
piano renditions were enjoyed by all. Beau, who seems 
to derive his happiness from seeing others happy, will 
be a welcome addition to any wardroom. His person- 
ality, repertoire of interesting facts, and his ability to 
listen are sure to show him success.

"Monday morning— and another week in which to be 
trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, 
obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent." 
That was Dick, with forty-nine merit badges too. The 
"kid" from the land of dog-sleds, affectionately known 
as Bird-dog or "The Bay," was versatility personified. 
His ambitions and interests were numerous and included 
buzzing around in the wild blue yonder. Although the 
Dickeroo expended ten thousand calories daily at tennis, 
handball, track, and road-work, not to mention E. D., 
his boxing prowess was his distinguishing ability, as 
many 145 pounders attest. The handsome lad with the 
pleasant smile and inexhaustible energy will continue to 
spread his ray of sunshine everywhere.

PORTLAND, OREGON 

One of the few who were sure that Oregon was part 
of the United States, Tom never tired of talking about 
its beauties, and at the drop of a slurring remark, he 
would break out his colored slides to prove his points. 
Although he managed the varsity wrestlers, and left his 
mark on plebe and batt lacrosse opponents, Tom's idea 
of good exercise was a rather slow fingering drill on 
the clarinet, which he played with both the band and 
orchestra. His hobbies were music and his collection 
of first day issues of stamps which extended back in an 
unbroken line to 1937. He worked with REEF POINTS, 
wrote many letters, (almost prayerfully hoping for an- 
swers) and still managed to stand near the top of the 
class academically. His winning smile will stand him in 
good stead wherever he may be. 



Stanley J. §rei/ 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

"Get this, it's the nuts! The greatest thing since Seven- 
Up! It'll kill ya!" A finger pointed at you like Uncle Sam 
in the "I want you" series, a hand grabbed your lapel, 
and you were immersed in Stan's newest masterpiece 
(possibly for the sixth time), whether it was a poem 
freshly censored from the LOG, a Gershwin tune on his 
harmonica, or a brilliant math solution designed to 
baffle the profs. Some suspected that this mathematical 
master mentalist carried 8-place log tables in his head, 
but Stan isn't selfish about his slide rule technique. "Call 
Stan!" was the popular cry the night before exams. 
Athletically, his high-water mark was the managership 
of battalion water polo between sessions with the sub 
squad. His bathing suit never got wet!

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA 

William and Mary claimed Jack for a while after high 
school, but Norfolk had exerted its influence, and he 
found his way to Navy. His mathematical prowess was 
legendary— from integral calculus to mental mathematics 
was quite a step, but Jack took both in his stride, as 
he did all the academics. On the football and soccer 
fields, Jack was a terror— one hundred and fifty pounds 
of jet-propelled muscle, and woe to the bewildered 
opponent who crossed his path! "Eight-ball's" haircut 
and his practical jokes gave him quite a reputation. 
The former involved only a pair of clippers and a bare 
scalp, while glue and after shave lotion were integral 
parts of the latter. But the bases of Jack's reputation 
were his unfailing sense of humor and his generosity, 
both of which will never fail to set him in good stead 
wherever he may be.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

After high school in Chicago, Don studied chemical en- 
gineering for three years at Yale, and his scientific in- 
terests continued at Navy, where he was an active 
member of the Mechanical Engineering and Photo Clubs. 
Don still had plenty of time for company cross-country 
meets and volleyball games, and could always be de- 
pended on to help a sports manager in almost any con- 
test. He was one of those rare individuals who never 
let the academics disturb him, for he could spend part 
of every study hour with a magazine, and still show any 
of us how to solve the most perplexing skinny problem. 
We may forget the skinny problems and cross-country 
meets, but we will always remember his cheerful man- 
ner and happy laugh. 




Howlon D. Warding* Jr. 

SHARON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Nort's customary Massachusetts reserve was absent only 
in the autumns when a vociferous spirit replaced it as 
he cheered Navy and Yale, his first Alma Mater, on to 
greater football glories. In most athletics Nort was more 
than the spectator type, save during the cross country 
season when he was always dashing over hill and dale 
with the harriers. Although he had many blind drags 
because he would never refuse a harried classmate, 
Nort enjoyed music more than social activities. His col- 
lection of Mozart's works assumed alarming proportions, 
for the classics were his first love. His second love was 
steak, which he devoured with a passion. He was a 
star man with ease, and, with his brilliant mind, Nort 
will succeed in whatever he does. We only hope that 
the wardroom of his ship can contend with his ferocious 
appetite. 





Charles #>. Mary 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

Truly a citizen of the "City of Brotherly Love," "Chuck" 
lived up to his heritage as very few do. After enlisting 
during the last war, his desire for a career in the Naval 
Air Corps resulted in his coming to the Academy. No- 
torious for his desire to become a good Naval Officer, 
he has excelled in exactness and ability in his daily 
work. Chuck was an avid basketball fan who pre- 
ferred to play rather than watch, and undoubtedly 
would have been an asset to Navy's squad had not a 
sudden desire to learn to swim altered his plans. Chuck's 
natural good nature will carry him far in any field and 
this, coupled with his perseverance and desire to learn, 
practically assure him of success in the Navy.

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 

Four years ago the Naval Academy was blessed by the 
entrance into its hallowed confines of Brooklyn's lead- 
ing citizen, Jim Haughey. Coming to Navy via Brooklyn 
Tech and the Naval Air Corps, Jim brought with him an 
excellent reputation in swimming and track. Versatile 
in the art of oratory, and possessed of an ardent love 
of good reading, he was always among the most sought 
after whenever a bull session was being formed. Jim 
was the idol of the academic delinquents, having 
cheated the academic departments at least once a year 
of a prospective candidate for civilian life. Jim enters 
the service with the desire to make the Marine Corps his 
career. Regardless of what branch he enters, however, 
his drawing personality will win him many friends.

"Bob" hailed from the wilds of northern New Jersey and 
was one of the first of his classmates to arrive at An- 
napolis. He entered No. 3 gate for the first time early 
in June 1945, fresh from five months on subs at New 
London. Bob managed to maintain a respectable aver- 
age in academics and at the same time give his all to 
the plebe and varsity gym teams. Bob was never one 
to be called a Red Mike; on the contrary he dragged 
quite frequently. Fond also of dancing, Bob held the 
all time high record in hop attendance. Still rather re- 
ticent and retiring, yet calm and forceful in his de- 
cisions, an attitude which will carry him far in his Naval 
career, Bob has always been one of the best of buddies. 



Cartton H~ fflewshnev 

YORK, PENNSYLVANIA 

After a year of electrical engineering at Bucknell under 
the V-12, Carl came to Navy with a commission in the 
Marine Corps as his primary objective. Although he 
spent more time dragging and writing letters than on 
academics, Todd managed to stand near the head of 
the class. He was active in many intramural sports, ex- 
celling on the company soccer team and the P. T. De- 
partment's sub squad. The rest of his recreational hours 
were divided among his hobbies, which included pho- 
tography, art, and music. The latter interest made him 
one of the mainstays of the concert band, where he 
played with either the clarinet or saxophone section. 
Graduation will have a double meaning for Carl, for 
he and Jean have been waiting ever since way back 
when they were in high school together.

William £. //«// 

STOCKTON, MISSOURI 

Bill, who always worried about his rapidly receding 
hairline and expanding girth more than he did about 
academics, was a past master at the art of snatching 
a few extra forty winks. Quite contrary to external ap- 
pearances, however, he was a quiet, adept, and driving 
athlete. Coming from Missouri, where lacrosse was only 
known as an old Indian game, he nevertheless took it 
up Plebe Year, starred on the JV's Youngster Year, and 
then played with the varsity. Basketball was second 
nature with Bill, but he was handicapped by his short 
stature. It was a rare occasion if a weekend passed 
without Bill dragging, but he was never known to date 
but one girl, perhaps for his own well-being, since she 
was his fiancee. She was forced to share his love, 
though, with Food, Sleep, and Lacrosse. 






John £. Hoffowd 

WAKEFIELD, RHODE ISLAND 

Jack was a tall, dark, good looking young man who 
came from the Puritan section of the country. He per- 
sonally held the distinction of never having graduated 
from high school or college, but he has finally dropped 
his guard and finished the school of his choice. His 
carefree Naval ways have clung to him throughout his 
stay at Annapolis, for he continued Jo have at least one 
girl in every port. His activities included dragging, 
handball, beating the system, and smoking. Although 
Jack might not have been the six striper, his name was 
destined to be on a plaque in "Loose" Hall for some 
stirring quotation as "Damn the Demos, Pass the Buck". 
This easy-going young man will undoubtedly succeed 
and make friends wherever he goes. 



WILBRAHAM, MASSACHUSETTS 

Another of '49's budding flyboys, with two years of aero- 
nautical engineering at MIT and a private pilot's license 
to his credit, Lloyd was well on his way when he came 
to Navy. His college training, coupled with a natural 
ability to "get the stuff," made it easy for him to breeze 
through the Academy without taking too much of a 
strain. No radiator squad man, he was a double threat 
athlete, equally at home on the varsity soccer fields or 
in a shell, pulling with the varsity crew. His inventive 
genius led him to pioneer in the hobby of propelling 
model cars with carbon dioxide gas bottles. Although 
always ready with a cheerful greeting, his habitually 
quiet manner showed that he was fonder of actions 
than words. This, together with his alert mind and love 
of flying, fits him well for his field.

FAIRFIELD, CONNECTICUT 

Jack was introduced to the sea-faring life at an early 
age in a bouncing sailboat on Long Island Sound. He 
has been one of the star-boat sailors ever since plebe 
year, and for weekend activities, dragging ran a poor 
second to a sailing race. When winter closed in over the 
Severn, Jack confined his athletics to the battalion bowl- 
ing team, where his strikes and spares helped to win 
several Brigade championships for his team. He was 
well fortified to battle the Steam Department— two and 
a half years of mechanical engineering at Yale did the 
trick. Only his close friends will ever really get to 
know "J C", as he goes serenely along behind that un- 
assuming nature of his, but the Fleet will profit when 
this Connecticut Yankee comes aboard. 



GREAT RIVER, L. 



NEW YORK 



Every afternoon, rain or shine, Fred would rush back 
from classes to get started at what he considered to be 
the only real sport-sailing. Perhaps his enthusiasm could 
be traced to his Long Island background, but that back- 
ground doesn't explain his other interests, such as a fast 
handball game on a cold winter day, or an exceptional 
interest in good food, which he always knew where to 
find. Though there was absolutely no excuse for his 
being one, Fred always appeared to be a confirmed 
Red Mike. Most of us weren't convinced that he had the 
true Red Mike spirit though— it seemed possible that 
there was a little laziness involved in his not dragging. 
He had a happy grin for each of us, and can certainly 
be depended on to always be a real friend.

Shepherd m. Jenks 

PIEDMONT, CALIFORNIA 

Shep came to the Academy right after graduating from 
St. Albans in Washington, where he had stood in the 
top ten percent in the nation in his college board math, 
and so had little difficulty in gliding through the math 
here. The remaining academics were handled in a man- 
ner that enabled him to stand high in the class. Shep 
early began his sailing career on San Francisco Bay, 
and this career extended through the Academy where 
he was active in yawl sailing. As a result of this ac- 
tivity, one fisherman is probably still wondering what 
species of sea monster parted his nets one stormy night 
on the Chesapeake. With the acquisition of a vic- 
trola, Shep was subjected to the tortures of his wife's 
jazz records during the last two years, but he managed 
to survive this, even learning to identify a chorus by 
"Satchmo."

John £>. Jensen 

CHEYENNE, WYOMING 

The ex-signalman deuce could always be counted on 
for a friendly greeting and a warm smile. Big-hearted 
and easy-going, this seaboot aficionado was well 
equipped by his world-wide experiences to help others 
with their troubles. Realizing the value of a warm smile, 
he made it a point to keep his spirits up under con- 
ditions which would have discouraged many others. 
Jen's fertile mind and quick tongue, combined with the 
habit of trying to get out of disagreeable situations 
(picked up while doing Armed Guard duty), was be- 
grudged by no one save the Executive Department. 
Of course, his encounters with this department never 
gained him a win, or even a draw, but with the Aca- 
demic Departments his determination and application 
resulted in continually improving marks. His display of 
doggedness and fight presages a successful Naval 
career. 




Joseph <fl. &ianewskwj 

RACINE, WISCONSIN 

Gifted with the glib tongue of a super salesman, Joe 
has many times sold and re-sold the Brooklyn Bridge, 
and never could be matched when it came to jokes. 
While at the Academy, he won his numerals in varsity 
swimming and also had a hand in batt lacrosse, com- 
pany Softball and fieldball, besides being a member of 
the Boat Club and Foreign Language Club. Joe was 
able to do without wine, as his special interests are con- 
centrated on women and song in that order, and finally 
on literature. While Joe's superior officers may gray 
a little at the temples as a result of his capers, we are 
sure they will never be able to complain of boredom as 
long as the Pride of Racine keeps smiling. 





fioheri <W. Kennedy 

RIVERSIDE, RHODE ISLAND 

Fiercely proud of his New England heritage, Bob never 
retreated from his stand that the colleges of that region 
are the finest in the land, although he lost money and 
gained grey hairs each fall in support of their football 
teams. A quick if not brilliant student, Bob breezed 
through the studies with a minimum of effort, always 
managing to stay a step ahead of the academic de- 
partments. His athletic ability, although considerable, 
was extremely concentrated— all in his right index finger. 
As a member of the pistol team, he learned to "squeeze 
them off" with the best shots in the country. His ever- 
present wit, represented chiefly by his acid tongue, was 
a constant source of amused consternation to us all. His 
loyalty and generosity point to a future in which success 
looms bright.

Clark <m. §iinncnf 9 Jr. 

WASHINGTON, D. C. 

Black was the day when Mills couldn't be found either 
denouncing the system wholly or in parts, thumbing 
through a mental index for a drag for a classmate not 
fortunate enough to hail from D. C, or pounding an 
ear— generally his partner's— on the wrestling mats. 
Those mental powers not churning at the moment were 
held in reserve to keep the academic foe at bay, or 
were turned toward sick bay— his health never seemed 
to be at a peak at Navy, and his relapses seemed to 
follow, or precede the academic schedule. The vocal 
powers not in use were being saved also— his weakness 
was running everyone save plebes. Mills ran the athletic 
gamut pretty successfully during the four-year fiasco, 
and the day wasn't complete without a workout of 
some sort.

DALTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

Dalton, Massachusetts, in the heart of the Berkshire 
hills, claims Gil Kirk as one of the home town boys who 
made good. After attending Dalton High for two years, 
where he played football, he transferred to Wilbraham 
Academy, where he played tackle on the football team 
and worked at the field events on the track squad. Gil 
enlisted in the Navy during his senior year there, and 
eventually wound up at Dartmouth in the V-5. We re- 
ceived him here via NAPS to go into the brigade late in 
the summer of 1945 with the tailormades barely off his 
back. Gil's main claim to fame lay in his membership 
on the 1946 championship interbattalion pushball team, 
his football career having been held down because of 
injury. He was best known for his ability to tease, living 
up to his Irish ancestry. 



€ji>4*i'<j4> til. Piling 

FAIR LAWN, NEW JERSEY 

George is so dog-goned tall that aboard his ship there 
cannot be any low overheads or small passageways- 
just plenty of deck space for planting his feet. He liked 
his sleep so much that it was usual to see him sacked in 
on cruise, but when there was something to do George 
wasted no time in getting it done. He was partial to 
Liederkranz cheese, beer, aviation, games of chance, 
partying, German, and all types of music, and could 
be found during the day either lugging his bowling ball 
and shoes down to the alleys, or trying to stop that 
falling hair that might be the result of many months 
of wearing a swabby hat. His mild humor and good 
nature will be welcome on any ship.

HELENA, ARKANSAS 

"Soy de Arkansas"— that was one phrase belonging un- 
mistakingly to Bill Knoble. Possessing all the qualities 
becoming a southern gentleman, he was proud of his 
state, and the deep south in general. Bill prepped at 
Marion Institute and the Citadel before coming to the 
Academy, so he was no novice to the Plebe System. 
Lumpy's chief claim to the gentleman of distinction title 
was his uncanny ability to drag only queens. Bill was 
a devout reader of Time magazine, which he claimed 
kept him mentally sharp, and frequent handball games 
served to sharpen him physically. He has his eyes on 
the wild blue yonder, but still cherishes a secret ambi- 
tion to return to the joys of hunting and fishing— in 
Arkansas. 






Philip J. Jiovltior 

OXFORD, CONNECTICUT 

Phil can truly say he never left home. His beloved Con- 
necticut was the subject of many a conversation as well 
as the title of a well-worn but cherished record. His lack 
of college established the precedent he followed of 
hard work. Phil will be best remembered for his varying 
successes on the soccer fields, for, after a very successful 
season as a halfback with the plebes, a knee injury 
hampered his movements somewhat with the varsity, al- 
though his determination kept him going all the time. 
One of his chief worries was his hairline, and daily re- 
assurances that he was not, repeat NOT acquiring that 
"distinguished look" were necessary to keep that worry 
down. Phil's determination and generosity will help 
him tremendously in the Fleet and in his planned at- 
tache work. 



Chris W. Harnb 

PORTSMOUTH, OHIO 

Somewhere on the way between Ohio State and Navy 
Chris lost his Yankee accent, but he brought with him 
an abundance of energy, appetite, and joviality. Al- 
ways ready to get "the boys" together for a few barber- 
shop melodies or hill tunes, "The Rasp" made a con- 
tinued effort to augment and improve his repertoire. 
Probably his efforts at this were only exceeded by his 
attempts to obtain the names and addresses of his class- 
mates' drags at the hops. On winter weekday after- 
noons, Chris could be found in Mahan Hall practicing 
for Masqueraders' productions. But all his time was by 
no means devoted to indoor activities. Athletically, he 
was proficient in everything from ping pong to baseball. 
We shall always remember Chris as an endless source 
of song, chatter, laughter, and help, when it was needed.

GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA 

When Lech came east, he brought with him a bit of that 
California sunshine reflected in his smile and person- 
ality, which, coupled with his willingness to help others, 
have won him many friends. While at Navy, Lech has 
found time to engage in company soccer, company gym, 
company football, batt crew, and yawl sailing, of which 
yawl sailing has taken most of his time and provided 
the greatest pleasure. But athletics have not prevented 
him from attaining a high academic standing with a 
minimum effort. Actually he spent more time reading 
than studying and Saturday night usually found Lech 
playing bridge instead of dragging. With his ability 
and ease of manner, Lech should go far in the career 
of his choosing. 



John Q~ Mlandcws 

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 

Born and brought up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Jack 
came to the Academy from the reserve midshipman 
school at Ft. Schuyler just a few days before his sched- 
uled graduation and commissioning, having already had 
a year at Boston College as a civilian and eighteen 
months in the Holy Cross V-12 behind him. As a mem- 
ber of Navy's soccer team, manager of the lacrosse 
team, and a mainstay of his company's football and 
softball teams, he has shown his exceptional athletic 
versatility. Sometimes quiet and restrained, always gen- 
erous, witty, and determined, Jack was driven by three 
forces— unselfish devotion to the service, to his family, 
and to his religion. If he is your friend today, he will 
be your friend for life. 




<ii)asl&tj £- £indsct/ 9 Jr. 

MELROSE, MASSACHUSETTS 

Wes had already seen quite a bit of the Navy when he 
decided to make his beloved Fleet a career and come 
to the Academy. On cruise if this shell-back wasn't 
in the sack he was always on the signal bridge remi- 
niscing over his three years as a quartermaster or his 
first-class rate. But during his four years here, he ac- 
complished much more of which he can be proud. His 
tympani were a mainstay of the band, and his struggles 
on the lacrosse field were typical of his spirit and his 
readiness to work. Academics were his main trouble, 
but by hard work he made up for the studying he had 
missed while at sea. His good nature, friendly grin, 
and generosity made everybody who knew Wes his 
sincere friend. This friendliness and his industry and 
love for the Navy make his future bright.

timothy (ft,. SWiahom&tj 

DETROIT, MICHIGAN 

Tim was a man who came to Navy Tech with the deter- 
mination that he would accept nothing but the best 
from himself. A man of fine taste, he enjoyed good 
music and the other fine arts. He won our admiration 
by his ability to apply himself completely to whatever 
he undertook, whether it was a blow at the Academic 
Departments or a game of batt football. With a year 
at the University of Detroit, Tim had a good background 
to help him in the classrooms. Tim's interests were many 
and varied, as evidenced by such hobbies as wood- 
carving and photography. Nor did he ever neglect 
dragging, for he took many beautiful femmes to the 
hops. It's the Marine Corps for Tim, or else. "Or else," 
as he would add, "I'll take something else." Our smil- 
ing Irishman will always do a good job, wherever he 
may be. 






William £. <ntartin 9 III Stanwix €}. lllnijfi^hl III 



ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA 

The South and Shirley Ann loaned Bill to Navy, and it 
won't be long now before Shirley Ann takes him back. 
He probably spent at least half his study periods writ- 
ing his OAO, but managed to squeeze through the aca- 
demics—with a starring average! Bill was active in 
company sports, starring in cross-country and football, 
and was a mainstay of the out of season weight-lifting 
squad. His varied abilities led to the drawing board, 
and this, coupled with his photography, produced one 
of the most interesting, artistic, and professional-looking 
albums to be found. When Bill wasn't writing a letter 
or working on his album, he could be found hiding 
under the covers of his bed. His buoyant spirit, sense 
of humor, brains, and ability should make him a suc- 
cessful aviation and naval officer in the Fleet. 



NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 

Service in the Navy came as nothing new to Stan, who 
finally admitted he was a genuine Navy Jr. After prep- 
ping at Marion Institute and spending a year in the 
service, he came to Annapolis flying the stars and bars 
of the deep south. In order to foil the upper classes, 
Wix went out for Plebe Cross Country— and ended up 
sitting on the Varsity training table. Youngster Year, 
however, he did his running for the 150 pound football 
team as first string end. It was rumored that "May- 
flower" never really tackled his opponents— he just used 
his famous nose to advantage. Wix has no definite 
plans for the future yet, and in the meantime he says 
that he will be very content to make the Navy his ca- 
reer in anything except an airplane.

NEWTON CENTRE, MASSACHUSETTS 

Irv, better known to us as Mac, is another representative 
of Massachusetts, calling Newton Centre home. Mac 
majored in electrical engineering for two years in the 
V-12 program at Worcester Poytech before coming 
to the Academy, so many of his classmates appreciated 
his previous learning. As far as the sports went, Mac 
commanded much respect due to his versatility and ex- 
ceptional ability in soccer. Besides winning his N * in 
soccer, he played plebe lacrosse and company football 
and softball. His hard playing and earnestness won 
him many friends both on and off the field. Either the 
sub service or the Naval Air Force will receive one of 
our best.

FLUSHING, LONG ISLAND 

Mac was right at home at Navy, having a brother in 
the class of 1945, and being an Admiral Farragut grad- 
uate himself. Soccer, wrestling, and singing occupied 
all of his weekday time that was not stolen by hopeful 
classmates looking for a drag in the pages of his volu- 
minous little black book. Nor were they often dis- 
appointed, for his femmes were as outstanding in beauty 
as they were in number. His greatest worry was the fail- 
ure of any of these interesting sirens to turn his heart 
to love. Wherever a crowd was found, Mac was surely 
at its center, leading in a chorus of "Flaming Mamie," 
or maybe just a few choice lines from his favorite bar 
in Greenwich Village. Ambitious and far-sighted, Mac 
will certainly be as successful in the Fleet as he was in 
all his varied activities at Navy.

COLDWATER, MICHIGAN 

With the stench of hypo attacking your nose, a German 
zither trio setting up unsympathetic vibrations in your 
eardrums and stumbling over wires, condensers, and an 
old clarinet, you'd find yourself in the home office of 
Morency Enterprises, Inc. In a cloud of smoke in the 
center of this maelstrom you'd spot a colorful character 
with thick dark hair uncombed and an imperturbably 
detached look: A. J. Morency, proprietor, the man who 
sailed flaked out on the coaming while his drag fum- 
bled with sheets and tiller, crossed the finish line of the 
cross-country course impeccably dressed in reefer and 
white hat, and beat the system by passive resistance. 
Though the course of least resistance often coincided 
with the 1650 course around Farragut Field, nothing 
ever bothered Jim.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 

Pat left a berth as an electrician's mate aboard the YMS 
212 to enter the Academy. He came originally from 
upper Michigan, where he acquired skill in zooming 
down hills on a pair of battered skiis. Here his chief 
interest was sailing, and in his star boat, the "Green 
Hornet," he gained a reputation as an outstanding sailor 
by winning many races, in addition to being a member 
of the Boat Club and the M. E. Club. While he was not 
among the savoirs, his good sense enabled him to hold 
up his end of the academic struggles and still observe 
more than his share of happy hours. Pat looked forward 
to the "wearin' o' the green," aviation green, that is, 
after graduation. Murph's Irish ancestry showed up in 
his glib tongue as much as his name. Easy to know, he 
will be remembered for his smile and ready answers. 






PARKMAN, OHIO 

Bob came to Navy by way of the Fleet, where he had 
served as an ETM 3/c, with a background of three 
years as an electrical engineer at Fenn College. Calling 
on this previous experience, Bob found time to keep up 
on his sleep, his excellent trumpet playing, and last, but 
not least, his social life. It was a rare weekend that 
Bob wasn't seen around the yard with Annette in tow. 
Bob was a firm believer in the theory that a person has 
the greatest equilibrium in the horizontal position, and, 
as a result, seldom experimented with any other ideas. 
In spite of the fact that he had played first string basket- 
ball at Parkman High School (enrollment five boys), 
here he confined his energies, when aroused, to com- 
pany sports. Judging by his past, Bob has a bright 
future in anything he may choose. 



Catwin C. n&wman 

MIAMI, FLORIDA 

Before coming to the Academy, Cal had attended Rens- 
selaer Polytechnic Institute, where he received a degree 
in chemical engineering. Armed with his knowledge and 
ability, he had no trouble with academics and was a star 
man throughout the course. Practically every study pe- 
riod he could be found lending a helping hand to his 
classmates in solving their problems. A great lover of 
music, he had a repertoire that seemed unlimited. He 
will long be remembered for his magnificent bass voice 
and his brilliant performances in Musical Club Shows 
and with the choir. He not only enjoyed classical music, 
but swing also, and as a harmony man he was terrific. 
With his amiable disposition, well-rounded personality, 
ability, and will to succeed, he will be a success wherever 
he goes or whatever he does.

Idwuiwd J. Of i h 

JERSEYVILLE, ILLINOIS 

E. J. came to Navy determined to make his mark, and 
a glance at his academic standing will verify that he 
did. Ed began his Naval career at Northwestern Uni- 
versity as a mechanical engineer in the NROTC. Four 
months short of a degree he made the fatal step of 
coming to Navy. Contrary to popular opinion he did 
not devote all of his time to academics, but also man- 
aged to be an active member of the Glee Club, Choir, 
and the Photo Club. He spent the greater part of the 
academic year renovating the Naval Academy's star 
boats, and sailing on the varsity sailing team. Ed in- 
tends to make a career out of the Navy; if his eyes 
hold out his first choice will be submarines. If not, he 
will continue to add up figures in the Supply Corps. 



NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 

After spending a short time as an enlisted man in the 
Navy, this tall southerner decided to postpone his mar- 
riage long enough to cast his lot with '49. A prospective 
engineer, he had spent a year in study at Tulane and a 
year at Notre Dame. Aided by this excellent back- 
ground, though two of his roommates did not persevere, 
Pat managed to continue on his way to become a suc- 
cessful naval officer. With studies taking up the greater 
part of his time, he had little left for his musical career 
which had been extensive in his pre-Academy days. 
Now that this voyage is over, Pat intends to enter the 
submarine service, after taking care of that pretty south- 
ern belle who has waited so faithfully so long. His 
ready wit, as well as his ability to listen to the opinions 
of others, will be appreciated in the silent service. 




GREAT NECK, LONG ISLAND 

Ed came to Navy by way of Severn Prep and Hobart 
College, and so, with a little work, he went on from day 
to day taking studies in his stride without too much 
strain. When he left Long Island, he had to give up 
horseback riding, but he was able to follow his interest 
in sailing, and many weekends found him on the bay 
in a yawl. Ed displayed his athletic abilities in football, 
wrestling, and varsity lacrosse, and did well in spite of 
the handicap of a bad shoulder. His ability to get things 
done was exemplified by his excellent job as company 
representative. His habitual sense of humor and honest 
sincerity about life's more important things have made 
him duly appreciated by his classmates. As a gentle- 
man and companion, he was superior. Ed was another 
man who looked forward to his dolphins.

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA 

H. B. decided to bring along as many of his old habits 
as he possibly could when he came to Navy after a 
year of fraternity life at L.S.U. and a short stay in the 
Navy, so he played bridge, dragged whenever it was 
possible, and had his siesta every afternoon. Although 
when cheering, he could have put many boatswains to 
shame, in less belligerent moods, his voice was soft. 
He successfully utilized the gentler voice as a member 
of the Glee Club, while in the shower, and in pursuit 
of the ladies. In the line of athletics H. B. chose gym- 
nastics for building muscle, and tennis and squash for 
relaxation. H. B.'s hospitality and good nature should 
continue to win him new friends, and his perseverance 
will assure him success in the Fleet.

GARETT COUNTY, MARYLAND 

After three years in the Fleet as an aviation radioman 
and gunner, Lee came to the Academy with extraordi- 
nary experiences, six ribbons, and a strong desire to 
become a Naval officer. His main interests here were 
company sports, sleeping, and last, but most enjoyable, 
women. Many hours meant for Math were spent solv- 
ing the numerous radio difficulties of his friends. His 
entanglements with women were involved and excit- 
ing, but Second Class Year he left the ranks of our 
bachelors. Oakland High School and NAPS gave him 
a background for tackling the academics, which were 
never too great an obstacle, and took a minimum of 
time. As Lee leaves the Academy, his aggressive and 
healthy outlook, bolstered by loyalty and sincerity, 
will make him a credit to his friends and the Navy. 





NOGALES, ARIZONA 

Business-like, straight forward, and amiable are the 
words which best describe Ed. He entered the Academy 
from the Marine Corps, where, as a corporal, he had 
seen action in the Pacific with the First Division. One of 
his main interests here was the pistol team which he 
helped to victory many times during his stay on the 
Severn. Secondary on his hit parade was his "gym- 
nasium," which was open to anyone at any time as long 
as they didn't push a bar bell through a mirror. An ac- 
tive member of the Photo and Mechanical Engineering 
Clubs, Ed puttered around the Lab or the shops on 
Wednesday afternoons devoting his talents to making 
things he seldom used. He will be remembered by his 
classmates as a fellow who always had a cheery smile 
and a welcome "Huhh" whenever he met them in the 
hall or on the street.

DURHAM, SOUTH CAROLINA 

Taylor came to Navy as a past master at the art of 
spending life in the horizontal position. After two years 
of the elementary slipstick course at Duke University, 
he was well prepared for the course here in Crabtown. 
During youngster cruise, Rigs picked up the name of 
Flagboy. Taylor embarked on the maddening whirl 
of dragging Youngster Year, hardly ever missing a 
weekend with a sweet southern lass. Flag was active in 
company sports, participating in soccer and fieldball. 
His pride was his stamp collection which he enlarged 
mostly by rummaging through discarded letters for new 
stamps. When asked if he plans to make the Navy his 
career, the only answer we could get was "Quien

DES MOINES, IOWA 

Phil's desk drawer was an excellent biography of his 
life at the Academy. It contained a rather dusty pair 
of boxing gloves, numerous pictures of assorted women, 
a clean wrestling helmet, a "Dear John" letter (in 
pieces), a Swedish straight razor with a cut-up strop 
and numerous accompanying bandaids, several "admit 
to sick bay" slips, an old ball of twine, a note remind- 
ing him that he must sing bass in the Musical Club Show 
with the Glee Club, and a reminder from his roommate 
pleading for a blind drag. Having attended Iowa State 
College for two happy years, he found academics some- 
what easier than the other problems confronting him 
here, and so spent his time reading magazines, writing 
letters, and holding extra instruction for his two strug- 
gling wives. 



MONTBANK, LONG ISLAND 

"Ring" came to the Academy after a year at VPI for 
the singular purpose of becoming the best Marine avia- 
tor this side of anywhere. A Marine junior, Tom braced 
and glowed happily at any mention of the Corps. To 
paint a truly accurate picture of him, one had only to 
point out the quick smile, easy laugh, and unbounded 
sense of humor which made so many friends and cap- 
tivated so many drags for him. After women, hunting, 
fishing, and flying took up most of his interests and 
energy. His knowledge of and ability to use firearms 
v/as always obvious from his hunting successes on leave. 
Besides the shooting, Tom was active in swimming, la- 
crosse, and football, in all of which he could always 
be depended upon to give an excellent performance. 
His ability to smile in any situation will help make Tom 
the "best Gyrene aviator ever."

OPELOUSAS, LOUISIANA 

Armed with a year at Southwestern Louisiana Institute, 
this rebel came from deep in the yam country to pit 
himself against the rigors of Navy. A specialist in la- 
crosse, he spent much time wielding a wicked stick in 
the batt competition, and when not in battle on the 
lacrosse field, he managed to play a good game of 
football, and occasionally tried his expert hand with the 
rifle. Continually kidded about that girl who was al- 
ways "taking exams," Cal always countered with re- 
partee of his own, and usually found himself master of 
any discussion. Cal's four years had color, as were wit- 
nessed by his varied encounters with the execs and his 
experience as a ventilating engineer Youngster Cruise. 
A prospective submarine officer, Cal hopes to skipper 
his own pigboat someday.

HARTSVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA 

After two short years at the University of South Caro- 
lina, Bill entered the Navy in the V-5 program as an 
aviation cadet. The Air Corps seemed to be right in 
Bill's line, so much so that he decided to make it all 
or nothing. Following a tour of duty at Bainbridge and 
a fleet appointment, Bill arrived first on line back in 
June '45. Academics have never seemed to bother this 
connoisseur of fine mint julips; on the contrary, the only 
thing that has been on his mind is the flying time he's 
been missing. But when it's all over, Bill will be out 
there flying 'em the way he's always wanted to, and 
below on the ground he'll have left a lot of fellows 
proud in calling him their classmate. 



UPPER DARBY, PENNSYLVANIA 

Coming from St. Joseph's and Villanova, Pete was a 
staunch supporter of Upper Darby, and always ready 
to expound its merits, not the least of which seemed to 
be the abundance of beautiful women. His wide knowl- 
edge of seamanship was gained from his favorite hobby 
of yawl sailing, and his twin nicknames, "Deck-Ape" 
and "Boats," were inspired by his love of all things 
nautical. Out of sailing season, he won numerals in 
plebe wrestling and spent many afternoons with the 
company sports squads. His pet expressions were a good 
guide to his personality: his generosity, "Take two, 
they're small;" and his philosophy "There is such a 
thing as a good naval officer." The sub service will 
gain a capable mariner in Pete, and he's a sure bet to 
go a long way in the Navy.

MADISON, WISCONSIN 

Jinx is a name that Bill brought with him from his high 
school days in Madison, Wisconsin. His V-12 days at 
Lawrence College gave him a running start on aca- 
demics and he easily outpaced them the whole way. 
Knowledge of the outdoors was Bill's pride and joy, 
and the wintery woods about Madison afforded many 
topics for those Plebe Year themes. Bill's calm person- 
ality proved not only to be of a mental nature, for he 
had that same calmness as he plinked off the bull in 
varsity rifle. His curly hair and charming personality 
always made a hit with the women. Women made a 
hit with him too, until the Army game of Plebe Year. 
After that there was but one, and June week of Young- 
ster Year found him engaged, set for his Navy career.

Al grew to amazing proportions, especially in his ex- 
tremities. His size 13 canal boats drew for him the very 
appropriate nickname of "Shoes". This moniker fol- 
lowed him to the campus of the University of Michigan 
where the hallowed walks echoed back his clopping 
footsteps for two years. While there, Shoes was ini- 
tiated into the Theta Theta chapter of Sigma Chi. In 
his Plebe Year he starred in two sports entirely new to 
him; soccer and lacrosse. He has won three N's in each, 
while gaining Ail-American honors for three consecu- 
tive years as goalie for the soccer squad and being 
elected its captain during first class year. The Berger 
was equally adept in academics. He is the possessor 
of a keen mind, a likeable personality, and a walk that 
defies imitation. 



NEW YORK, NEW YORK 

Arriving at USNA via a rather devious route which in- 
cluded two years in chemistry at Franklin and Marshall 
and two more in the Air Corps training program, the 
engineers, and the Navy, Schnie managed to maintain 
a starring average despite his love for the sack, where 
he was usually found during study hours. His athletic 
endeavors included varsity tennis and intramural squash, 
handball, and volleyball, while an excellent record col- 
lection, yawl sailing, and candid photography were his 
pet hobbies. He also devoted his attentions and talents 
to the fair sex upon occasion, but thus far has avoided 
all the snares and pitfalls. A member of the French 
Club, and an after-dinner speaker par excellence (?), 
Bernie hopes to branch out into ONI or attache duty.

NORWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA 

From the salty decks of the gunboat Paducah, NAPS 
sent Leo to us— he was Regular Navy then and always 
will be. A year at Penn sharpened him for the aca- 
demics here. His energy always amazed us, for it was 
shown in many varied activities throughout the Brigade. 
A vital cog on our Hop Committee for four years, ar- 
ranging for programs and favors was a labor of love 
for him. The plebe lacrosse and Junior Varsity soccer 
teams knew him as a battler, and his managerial abil- 
ity helped our Varsity basketball teams. Even with his 
many extra-curricular activities he always found time 
for dragging— never a dull moment with out Pennsyl- 
vania representative in the vicinity. Someday a lucky 
Admiral will have "P. L." on his staff— then our social 
slash will really be at home. 




EVERETT, WASHINGTON 

In May, 1926, the greatest potential tugboat skipper 
and member of the Washington Chamber of Commerce 
was born. After dragging beautiful women and play- 
ing basketball and tennis at Everett High and a year in 
the East at Admiral Farragut, he went on to Washington 
State, where Roomie was Vice President of his class, an 
ardent SAE, and last but not least, the best house boy 
the KKGs ever had. Egroq came to Navy full of a vim 
and vigor that he has never been able to loose through 
battles with Math and Skinny, Newport, Copenhagen, or 
London. Roomie is a hard working boy who has never 
let a classmate down in a pinch and one who would, 
on the bridge of a tugboat or a battleship, be the kind 
of skipper we'd all like to serve under. 





<Jam<BM <H. Scott 

JASPER, ALABAMA 

Tecumseh Court is a sea of white caps, cheering throats, 
and blaring trumpets. High on the steel platform he 
crouches, hillbilly hat jammed over his eyes, up from the 
Carolina hills to see his Duke team maul the Big Blue. 
The skit ends, and a roar of approval swells above the 
grey walls of Bancroft— music sighs into the dusky cor- 
ners of Dahlgren. In the middle of the floor, sweat 
gleaming on his brow, bow tie askew, he jitterbugs 
with his OAO— wind whips the yawl over further. There 
he stands, both hands gripping the wheel, peering into 
the blackness to pick out the next buoy. Who is he? 
Five foot six, the pride of Jasper, the brain of the Bri- 
gade Activities Committee, he was partial to barbecued 
ribs, polka-dot bow ties, and a certain little magnolia 
blossom down 'Bama way. Who? Just call him "Jimbo."

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA 

"My head is bloody but unbowed." Neither the aca- 
demic squalls nor a tempestuous love-life succeeded in 
washing Harry overboard, though his ship was bat- 
tered by both. His conscientiousness steered him safely 
through the former and, apparently, Divine Guidance 
through the latter. After class he was invariably the 
first up the ladder to grab for the mail, and if he 
spotted a Scottish postmark he felt the extra HP ex- 
pended were worth it. He swung a mean sabre in the 
fencing loft, knew medical terms considerably longer 
than four letters, spouted Shakespeare, giving the Bard 
some competition now and then with his own epics, and 
analyzed his inner emotions with the help of mood cycle 
graphs. Harry's design features are a sometimes slightly 
harried look, a prankish sense of humor, and a genuine 
consideration for others.

WESTPORT, CONNECTICUT 

A graduate of Admiral farragut 1 Academy, where he 
had played football, boxed, and edited the school news- 
paper and yearbook, Lew managed to get in two years 
of V-12 and NROTC at Trinity and Brown before Navy. 
After one session of football Plebe Year, Lew decided 
that his feet were not made for the wear and tear in- 
volved on the gridiron, so he switched to crew where 
he has come up to be one of the mainstays of the 
squad. The "Tiger," famed for his enormous biceps and 
appetite to match, was an avowed bachelor, but it was 
always our contention that he who was acclaimed "the 
handsomest boy in Fairfield County" could not last too 
long after graduation. 



QUANTICO, VIRGINIA 

The most bowlegged man in Bancroft's history came to 
us as an ex-Navy man and an ex-Marine. That old 
adage of once a Marine, always a Marine seemed to 
hold true, for Dick is headed for the air arm of the 
Corps. His father was a Navy doctor, so Dick could 
claim no town as his own, but what he gained in travel! 
more than made up for his loss of a one-town spirit. 
With a smile on his face and one eye on the sack, Dick 
tripped through the toughest days, only complaining* 
when he got but one letter. When he could be pried 
from his bed, he was usually found diving or back- 
stroking in the pool, or playing batt football or lacrosse. 
As a member of the Brigade Activities Committee, he 
helped make the pep rallies the thing to see, and he 
also helped put over a Musical Club Show or two.

SOUTH BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 

This blonde Bostonian left high school to join the Navy, 
where he spent two and a half years as a submariner 
before shaking off some of the salt and trading his bell- 
bottoms for a visored cap. His determination to make 
good got him through the entrance exams and later 
helped him stand in the top half of the class, but his 
abilities were not limited to academics, for he got his 
title "Champ," and his N by his potent use of boxing 
gloves and he occasionally stepped out of the ring to 
wield a wicked driver on the batt golf team. Second to 
collecting those daily letters from the blonde Norwegian 
New Yorker, Gene collected foreign hotel registers, no- 
tably from Panama. After six and a half years of Navy 
Blue, Gene has decided to try his hand in another 
branch of the service, the Marines. 






Donald M. Smith 

ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO 

Don spent two years at New Mexico Military Institute 
and two more in the Army before he came to Crab- 
town wearing his khakis and a Good Conduct Medal 
and eager to learn about the Navy. Smitty's mild man- 
ner and soft voice did not give evidence of his indus- 
trious nature, but his academic record and an "N" for 
his crew efforts gave evidence that he worked hard and 
well. He was always good for a witty remark when the 
going was rough, and on weekends he could usually be 
found at the hop either escorting one of his best num- 
bers or snaking dances with someone else's weekend 
joy. Don wants destroyer duty after graduation, but 
whether he gets it or not he seems assured of a success- 
ful career. 



Worncr <£. Smith 

ALMA, WEST VIRGINIA 

Homer would have been happier as a major league 
ball player, but he still took Navy Tech in stride with 
no trouble from the Academic Departments. The trials 
of Navy life left him disillusioned at times, but he al- 
ways snapped back and went on with the job at hand. 
There was something of the gambler in his personality, 
and there were few "sure" things that he would pass 
up. He would argue about anything that was brought 
up with anyone who would argue, and defeat was un- 
known to him— his motto was "If you can't be logical, 
be loud." Sports held his attention when the current 
Esquire had been read from cover to cover, and one 
could always talk him into a game of handball or foot- 
bail. He always played to win, but, win or lose, he 
always finished smiling.

HINSDALE, ILLINOIS 

Then there was always the farmer— the one and only 
Smitty. Born at a very early age in Chicago, Illinois, 
he began to make his mark in life early. From the very 
first he was interested in military life. A Star Scout in 
the Boy Scouts, he later went to Onarga Military Acad- 
emy and graduated after four years of work as Cadet 
Colonel. Bob, in his years at the Academy, did every- 
thing a midshipman can do. He and "Flag Bag" (the 
wife) dragged almost every girl from Annapolis south 
to Norfolk and even a few further south. He sailed on 
the star-boat team and kicked a mean soccer ball. 
Farmer looks to the Sub Service and if he does as well 
in the Fleet as here, he'll do as in the past; he'll go as 
high as anyone can.

REXBURG, IDAHO 

Our great Northwest had no better supporter than this 
hunting and fishing fan who constantly kept us in touch 
with the superiority of his so-called "God's Country." 
Although basically an inlander, somewhere along the 
line that went from Mackay to two semesters of engi- 
neering at Idaho to several years in the Air Corps this 
tall blonde acquired a knowledge of the Navy exten- 
sive enough to rate the title of "Chief," and thorough 
enough to enable him to choose subs as his choice of 
duty. He ran near the top with the harriers as well as 
being a mainstay on intramural lacrosse and softball 
teams, and was also a top notch starboat sailor for the 
varsity, Smitty's captivating personality entranced his 
many female friends and was a great asset on liberty 
in foreign ports. 




Cornelius S, Snodgrass 

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA 

Strib, who lived several years in England just before en- 
tering the Academy, will be best remembered for his 
delightful sense of humor and quietly confident manner. 
Though thoroughly indoctrinated in matters naval, he 
retained much of that easy-going attitude he acquired 
as a Delta Chi at Lafayette. As an athlete, Strib demon- 
strated his prowess to best advantage on the links across 
the river, always turning in a low card for the varsity, 
and rounded out as a mainstay on a championship com- 
pany soccer team. Known as a Dago Savoir, Strib had 
a smattering of German and other European languages 
he picked up on the continent. Though not a Red Mike, 
Strib rarely dragged, due to his high standards and the 
Executive Department's consistent refusal to allow him 
to use his deluxe convertible when escorting.

SHELBYVILLE, TENNESSEE 

This fair-haired rebel brought with him an air of mild 
manners and good humor when he arrived at Navy. His 
big heartedness and constant willingness to do a favor 
made him everybody's friend. Stan could always be 
found exercising in the afternoons; if not swimming, he 
would be playing company soccer or fieldball with 
plebe and batt wrestling rounding out his athletic ac- 
tivities. His active participation in the Mechanical Engi- 
neering Club claimed a lot of time, but didn't keep Stan 
from enjoying dragging on the weekends. He worked 
hard for his gains, yet did not drive himself to ex- 
tremes, and so earned the rank of savoir, without the 
stigma of a slash. The will and ambition to complete 
any assignment should lead him to success in his chosen 
career.

SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS 

Down from Salem, the home of clipper ships, witches, 
and Bowditch, Ham plans to navigate a long Naval ca- 
reer. After winning the Dartmouth Award for all around 
activity in high school, he went in V-12 to Harvard, 
where he lettered in football, and made the "marks of 
a gentleman," graduating as an Ensign, USNR. Ham 
always had a cheery "Hello" as he walked through the 
yard with that characteristic roll. He was well known 
for his singing voice which was never heard in key, al- 
though he had a fine appreciation of music. When the 
varsity 150-pound football team was organized Young- 
ster Year, he was first string right guard, and after two 
years of undefeated competition, he was elected cap- 
tain for First Class Year. Ham resigned his commission 
to come to Navy, and he goes back to the Fleet with 
his future success assured. 





James M. Stubslad 

WINONA, MINNESOTA 

Winona, Minnesota's, contribution to the Navy comes in 
a large package, directly from high school. Stubby is 
the nickname and it fits him to a tee, one hundred 
ninety pounds of solid muscle. Popular in his company 
for good humor and easy-going manner, Jim was also 
skilled in the ways of the balsa butcher. What he 
couldn't do with a block of wood and a sharp knife 
couldn't be done. This and his interest in all things me- 
chanical led him early into the Mechanical Engineering 
Club. He loves sailing and was skilled enough to hold a 
place on the starboat sailing team. As for love in- 
terests, Stub says nothing, but he wears a wide grin 
at the mention of Vassar College. Chief among his de- 
sires is to earn a pair of wings.

POCATELLO, IDAHO 

Whatever you wanted to know about potatoes, this 
walking spud factory could tell you, and all of his an- 
swers were from personal experience. His natural ten- 
dencies for the stage made him a mainstay in the Mas- 
queraders and Musical Clubs productions. One of the 
smarter members of our class, he never let women 
bother him— "Why drag when you can see three movies 
a weekend?" was his motto. In the afternoons, Pete 
would either be in a handball court or up in the wres- 
tling loft, but never in the sack— proving that potatoes 
help make a man and good proof he is, too. After grad- 
uation, Pete is headed for the Air Corps and it's a bet 
he takes a full collection of Al Jolson records up with 
him on every flight.

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 

After four months' training for the Army Air Corps at 
the University of Arkansas, Phil received his appointment 
to Annapolis and gladly swapped services, coming to 
NAPS late in 1944. His one great love, baseball, 
showed itself Plebe Summer when he pitched for the 
49ers— from then on he was ole Diz. He won his first 
N Youngster Year and was a mainstay on Navy's 
pitching staff for three years. With academics, it took 
diligent study and perseverance, but he always scored 
a win. He tackled difficulties with a determination sel- 
dom seen— for this and many other qualities he has 
gained the respect of his classmates. According to Phil, 
there's nothing like the Navy. He's for staying in and 
becoming an aviator or a submariner. 



Mittrry £ft. ^hurber* Jr. 

MADISON, CONNECTICUT 

Along with his expressed liking for stogies, Tom in- 
herited a natural bent for the Navy from his seagoing 
forebears and made his way to Annapolis via St. Albans 
in Washington, D. C. Long Island Sound was the birth- 
place of his love for sailing. He was not long in obtain- 
ing his yawl command, and between the yawls and the 
starboat sailing team, he spent many happy hours away 
from the struggle of academics. No slouch when it came 
to weekends, Tom took them all in stride with a strong 
inclination toward Sweet Briar. After graduation, it'll 
be just that certain girl and then Naval Aviation, with 
a gradual fading into the past of the causes for that 
often repeated statement, "I've been had!"

A Navy junior, Jack could always claim many places as 
home, but most often he sang the praises of sunny Cali- 
fornia and the island paradise of Hawaii. Lacking pre- 
vious college, he had his trials with the academics, but 
never let them get him down. A fine athlete, he was 
especially adept at boxing, as many sadder and wiser 
opponents will testify. Never one to ignore the charms 
of a languid smile, he was well known as a connoisseur 
of beauty until the middle of Plebe Year, when he was 
removed from circulation by a cute brunette from Var- 
sar. His repertoire of jokes was widely known, mostly 
for its considerable range— from crudest corn to clever- 
est subtlety. Quiet and unassuming, Jack was a valua- 
ble friend, always ready with sensible advice when 
needed or to help out in the pinches.

WESTFIELD, NEW JERSEY 

Formerly a fire-controlman. Bob came to Navy by way 
of Navy prep schools, and, although well prepared for 
the entrance exams, he found that constant hard study- 
ing was his guide academically for his four years. 
Though studies took up much of his time, he still found 
time for an active athletic schedule. His experienced 
toe was well used on the soccer field, and in football 
and track, he made full use of his endurance. Occa- 
sionally he found free time to devote to his sketching 
and serve as a smiling host on the Reception Commit- 
tee. A member of that happy group who were not 
settled with OAO's, Clint believed in variety in his fre- 
quent dragging. Having seen surface duty on a de- 
stroyer and a gunboat, Bob now plans to enter the sub- 
marine service, where his pleasant nature and smile will 
be welcome additions.

SAN JUAN, PUERTA RICO 

Wally was a converted "Rambling Wreck from Georgia 
Tech" who joined us to become a Gyrene. A native of 
San Juan, he constantly amazed us with his perfect 
English and slashed us with his 4.0 Bull. His ambition 
to become a Naval Officer guided him in high school 
where he was president of his class. Prepping in Mary- 
land introduced him to his favorite sport at Navy, la- 
crosse. His speed and aggressiveness on the field were 
never without his smile, a smile recognized by many 
throughout the Brigade as the key to his fine person- 
ality. Wally's interest lay in the finer things of life, 
poetry, etc. The etceteras flocked from all over but 
mostly from the southland, as far as San Juan. The 
Marines have taken one of our finest friends, but they 
have found a fine officer and a gentleman.

SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS 

Bob was an outstanding product of Lincoln's home town, 
where, in addition to being an Eagle Scout, he had also 
served a hitch as a Sea Scout. After spending nine 
months in Bullis Prep, he had, as we found, several very 
attractive belles in Ye Olde Maryland. Most of his 
studying was done horizontally, with the aid of his 
distinctive green visor, and his favorite hobby was hit- 
ting the sack. Another hobby was keeping his excel- 
lent scrap-book up to date. Besides being an active 
member in both the Mechanical Engineering and French 
Clubs, Bob was also a mainstay in intramural sports, 
playing company soccer and fieldball, as well as batt 
lacrosse. Bob's versatility should be a valuable asset 
when he becomes one of the vital links in Naval avia- 
tion, in which he has long been interested. 



JEwnawd & l oyB- Jr. 

CINCINNATI, OHIO 

Mike (Meat Packer) Vogt, whose name was really Leon-

attended Xavier University in Cincy and then went to 
I IT" where he acquired the only major letter ever awarded 
a tennis player at IIT. Here also he acquired Nancy, 
who shared his time with tennis racquets and the text 
books. With this preparation and Nancy, Mike didn't 
do too badly for himself at Navy. Lettering in tennis his 
Plebe and Youngster Years, he captained the team his 
Second Class Year, as well as playing squash with the 
best of them. A very enterprising young man, Vogt's 
small stores will be famous the world over if ever by 
chance he leaves the Navy. 




Jay §1. Wallace 

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA 

Ray came up from the sea in a submarine to exchange 
his Quartermaster's rating for the rates of a Navy fresh- 
man, after two years duty in the Southwest Pacific had 
given him the perfect background. A firm believer in 
physical fitness, he found that being on the radiator 
squad didn't allow him to satisfy the great appetite he 
had developed on good sub service chow, so he became 
a member of Navy's Poughkeepsie championship crew. 
When rowing wasn't in season, Jay Ray spent some of 
his spare moments doctoring up his uniforms to look a 
little saltier and more dapper than the rest of ours, and 
on weekends nothing could keep him from dragging 
his queen. Ray is assured success by his ready smile and 
winning personality, and is sure to be remembered by 
all of us as a gentleman and a friend.

James <H. Webber 

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA 

To the cold grey walls of Navy came a chap with a 
sunny disposition acquired in sunny California, whose 
only gloom occurred when the fair name of California 
was impugned. Early Plebe Year, Jim began making 
out watch bills instead of standing watches, and he re- 
tained that position for three years, thus earning the 
distinction of being one of the few wheels who could 
go through three years of the system without standing 
a watch. During his few waking hours, besides making 
out a watch bill or two, his time was divided between 
the latest Book-of-the-Month Club selection and his fre- 
quent, more-or-less successful dragging pursuits. Any- 
one who wanted to beef about the system could always 
find a sympathetic listener in Webb, although the con- 
versation usually ended up on the glories of Cali- 
fornia. 




William D. Weir 

KERRVILLE, TEXAS 

On the day Don entered Navy, he is supposed to have 
said "Hmmm." Along with three volumes of Texas his- 
tory, he brought the nickname "Moose," which he had 
acquired playing football in Texas. Moose did well in 
academics, but they were never one of his main in- 
terests. He has been known to open three books and 
then lie down until the urge to study passed. On the 
gridiron it was a different story, for he was active in 
the line of Navy's varsity football team during each of 
his four years here. When football season passed he 
devoted his free time to his favorite pastime— women. 
More than one was charmed by his Texas drawl. Al- 
ways easy-going, friendly, and sincere, Moose will be 
remembered by everyone as one of the swellest guys 
they have ever known. 





PHehard* <H. West 

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

Dick arrived with the first members of our class, via the 
USMC. Taking the rigors of Plebe Summer in stride, and 
battling the Bull Department with great gusto, he was 
ready to establish a name for himself. Perilous Math 
P-works, themes proofread by a rotund North Caro- 
linian, CIS's and rotten football tickets were the total 
of his trying moments. His pastimes included keeping 
up a large correspondence, Glee Club, Musical Club 
Shows, piano, and an occasional vocal session with the 
boys. The way Dick could wreck a serving of ham- 
burgers and spaghetti would please any cook. His free 
time was spent close to the radiator and that inner- 
spring as he quietly solved his problems in peaceful 
slumber. Those days are over now, but Dick will get 
what he wants from life in his own inimitable way.

winters. A devout advocate of soccer during his Young- 
ster and Plebe Years, he found the spirit waning after 
numerous periods of exhaustion due to the aimless chas- 
ing of the ball. Bob snowed his wife plebe year by 
rattling off meaningless Spanish phrases until the latter 
began to understand some of them. He never failed to 
amaze us by dragging beautiful women with scads of 
money. Although a very devout Catholic, he secretly 
worshipped Eros, a small statue standing in Piccadilly 
Circus. All in all, Bob should be successful in his chosen 
career as a Naval aviator.

Barry came to us after three years in the Navy with 
eternal praise for Naval Aviation. His abilities as a 
short haired violinist not only brought his Stradivarius 
into operation for four years with the orchestra, but he 
wore out more strings playing the violin during exam 
weeks and after P works. Barry was a talented music 
lover and could identify anything from jazz to classics. 
This handsome Irishman had a way with the women and 
held a firm belief that dragging was the best relief for 
menetal strain. In the fall he devoted his time to the 
managerial duties of the 150 pound football team where 
he made an excellent record. His aim for graduation 
is to be flying wing and wing with his brother Gene.

ATHENS, GEORGIA 

Jack wanted to be an aeronautical engineer, but 
quickly changed his mind when he received an appoint- 
ment to the Academy. Academically, he followed the 
path of least resistance, and invariably spent the eve- 
nings at pursuits more pleasant than studying. He pos- 
sessed an amazing degree of aptitude for all things 
mechanical, and spent many an afternoon at his favor- 
ite hobby, model building. J. H., like all southerners, 
welcomed an opportunity to refight the battles of the 
Civil War— any reference to Sherman's visit to Georgia 
immediately set the discussion on the heated and violent 
track. His usual carefree manner changed to a serious 
one when he was confronted with responsibility. The 
ability he possesses to face all tasks with a wide smile 
will undoubtedly be useful to him as a Naval officer.

Ziggy decided to give up the easy life of a civilian for 
the rigors of Navy while studying chemical engineering 
at Marquette University. Mark's two greatest interests 
were sailing and football. After a year of intense re- 
ducing, he got down to 150 pounds and spent two suc- 
cessful seasons with the mighty mites. The fairer sex 
always went for Mark's well groomed, wavy hair, but 
he was happier listening to sweet music and writing 
a certain gal back home on Saturday nights than drag- 
ging. Mark was an active member of the Mechanical

From land and sea, from north, south, east, and 
west, we came to form a class and start our ca- 
reers. Some from college, some from the ward- 
rooms, most from the enlisted ranks, we gathered 
forces gradually, bringing in those individual ex- 
periences and traits that were to influence our 
class as a whole. For three days we were exam- 
ined by the medics, who checked us from trunk 
to keelson with finetooth combs. The inevitably 
necessary forms filled out, we paid our money 
and got in return a pair of dark glasses and the 
ill-famed $100 haircut. Those necessary prelimi- 
naries dispensed with, we gathered in Mem Hall 
for the great moment— and we were sworn in as 
Midshipman, U. S. N. We had made it! 



For the well-dressed midshipman 




The big moment 




Stencilling seemed to take forever 



PLEBE SUMMER 

Our first move after being sworn in was to draw 
our initial outfit from the stores. Loaded down 
with white works, skivvies, and all the other nec- 
essary equipment, we drew our boxed outfits. 
Through clothes, bedding, and other things we 
plunged, armed only with stencils, ink, and a 
toothbrush— emerging after three days with sten- 
cil ink on everything. Our singing of "those laun- 
dry number blues" was interrupted only by the 
everlasting tailor shop parties, inspections, and in- 
oculation parties, where we were respectively 
suited, told that our lockers were stowed wrong, 
and pumped full of antitoxins. Eventually we 
started on our first day of classes with little knowl- 
edge of what was in store. 




Not bad at all!

Prove you've got muscles 



One of our most constant contacts during Plebe Summer was with 
the Physical Training Department, or "torture" department as we 
were soon to know it. Under the guidance of "Pap Sheet Pappy" 
we learned, and exercised at, stoop falls, squat jumps, and all the 
other forms of "jerks." We branched out from these in short order, 
however, moving on to the various specialties, such as wrestling, 
boxing, fencing, soccer, and hand-to-hand combat. We took our 
first tests over the obstacle course and swimming courses, faithfully 
promising ourselves halfway through each that never again would 
a cigarette touch our lips.

We readily discovered that everything at Navy starts with a forma-

Worc/en Field— and Wednesday afternoon 

379 




Once each week we received training in the use 
of small arms on the ranges at North Severn. 
First to the seawall to embark in the motor 
launches, then off to the landing to the cry of 
"Don't disembark until I say disembark! Disem- 
bark!" By phases ranging from the basic con- 
struction of a rifle and safety precautions to skeet 
shooting, we marked our progress as marksmen. 
Under the guidance of Marines, whose greatest 
phobia was expressed upon hearing the "Halls 
of Montezuma," we learned to shoot twenty- 
two's, Springfields, pistols, carbines, and Ga- 
rands, firing for expert ratings. What time was 
not spent on the firing line was passed in the 
butts pulling and pasting, trying to keep up with 
the shooters, and hoping that the backstops were 
as substantial as they looked. Our biggest trou- 
bles came with the rain, for the notorious Mary- 
land weather always seemed to choose our day 
for ordnance as the day when the torrents would 
come and the earth would become a soggy 
sponge. 




Rifle range, here we come

One of our main diversions during our period 
of indoctrination came with the drills of the Sea- 
manship Department. In this department we 
started to learn the basic elements of seamanship 
by pulling oars and racing cutters on the Severn. 
From cutters we went to the jackstays where we 
learned how to tie our shoelaces and anything 




Flag hoist drills 




We learned to sail 



The intricacies of seamen's knots

else that needed tying, in the approved Navy way, 
Once through with knots we went back to boats. 
Knockabouts provided many drills that were fun, 
for sailing, even in a drill, was an interesting and 
diverting pastime. From knockabouts we went 
to the rigging loft of Luce Hall to become ac- 
quainted with signal flags, semaphore and blin- 
ker—all forms of visual communication. Our skill 
developed as time went on, and we were able 
to read signals of all sorts at the end of our visit 
there. Then back to the sea again, this time in 
sailing whaleboats. 





But we just finished PT! 



One of the most constant diversions of the sum- 
mer was the inter-battalion competition to deter- 
mine which batt would have the extra Saturday 
of liberty. To win this and to get our recreation, 
we participated in the sports program, each man 
contributing where he could. Infantry, too, was 
graded in this, and for the winning company the 
long hours of drill paid off. The biggest celebra- 
tion of the summer came on 16 August, when we 
rang the Japanese Bell, painted Tecumseh, and 
filled the court with home-made confetti in honor 
of V-J Day. We were now at peace.

All this time the day was drawing ever closer— 
that fateful day when '49 would join the Brigade 
and be plebes in reality, with all the upperclasses 
watching us from close range. We had had a 
period of indoctrination. We had made friends 
and started to form the bonds that would even- 
tually unite us under the heading of classmates. 




We had learned much, and were ready, we 
hoped, to start facing our dual job of the year 
ahead— being plebes, and facing the Academic 
Departments with their gradebooks. 




The dreaded day approached 





P/efae Ho/ 

/>r/#/#ff<?/#» ( U)as Waiting 

And so it started— our own private war with the 
system and the rigors of Plebe Year. All Plebe 
Summer we had heard veiled threats of what 
would happen to '49 when Plebe Year started. 
Life rapidly took on a more complex aspect than 
even that of Plebe Summer, for we now had 
ACADEMICS to contend with, to say nothing of 
the assignments given by the upperclassmen. 



Brace up, mister! 



Trie first hundred years 





Happy birthday! 




Our activities were varied, but all pointed to one 
goal— indoctrination. We learned the meanings 
of RHIP in all forms. We found out answers to 
questions ranging from the displacement of a 
mine-sweeper to the names of the sister ships. We 
even learned how to manage the starched collar, 



Windsor knot, and the de-linting of blues. Sunday 
nights, we put on the traditional "Happy Hour". 
Then, too, we were having our times with those 
academics. In our cloud there was but one silver 
lining— Plebe Christmas, which had to come some- 
time, but seemed so far off and unattainable.

"The uniform for the parade this afternoon is. . . ." 
We soon found that with the end of Plebe Sum- 
mer our days of dragging "Miss Springfield" were 
not past, and that she was to be an ever-present 
companion for the next four years. Twice a week 
we practiced, and once a week we showed off 
to the public on Worden Field, where we ironed 
out the kinks under the guidance of the upper- 
class, who were always only too willing to help. 
Sometimes we had distinguished visitors for our 
weekly marches, and once we were the visitors— 
p-rading in Washington to help honor CinCPac. 
But there were bright sides, too— one of the first 
tokens that told us '49 was a class was the elec- 
tion of the Class Crest Committee, and the subse- 
quent picking of our class crests. We chose care- 
fully, for we would be wearing it many years, 
and we wanted one of which we could be proud. 
Our first step towards unity as a class had been 
taken— we were now '49 in truth as well as the 
records.

Spirit for the Army Game was high 



The guiding lights of Plebe Fall were the football 
weekends. We boarded the excursion boats to 
go up to Baltimore and cheer the Blue and Gold 
with great feelings of emancipation, for we were 
to have LIBERTY! The only bad features were the 
marches from the boat to the field— but the games 
and liberties were worth it! Our final trip in the 
boats took us to Philadelphia where we were to 
see our first Army Game— that cold, cold morn- 
ing getting off the deck and dressed seemed al- 
most impossible, but the tension and anticipation 
were enough to snap us to. The biggest and 
best time of all, though, came when we started 
that eleven-day heaven— Christmas Leave! We 
were all kings, and the cares and worries of 
Plebe Year were forgotten. We could laugh at 
the horrors of the system and occupy ourselves 
with only one thing— how to cram as much fun 
as possible into a week and a half. 



Georgia Tech— our only game under the lights

That first set of finals 




Vox Pop gave life to the Dark Ages 



Too soon it was all over, and we returned to stare 
our first set of rivers in the face. There would 
be seven more, but the first set was enough for 
some. We counted casualties, bid goodbye to 
those who were shipping over to the "USS Great 
Outside," and started into the Dark Ages, where 



there were no football trips, or anything else, to 
break the monotony. Then, suddenly, came 100th 
Night, when we were first class and kings of Ban- 
croft for one glorious evening. The strain was 
easing and spring was approaching. Our first 
set of Dark Ages was over. 





The coat didn't fit, but it felt good

Suddenly it was spring, and once again we came 
to life. Our first chance to drag came with the 
Musical Club Show, and we set out to prove, suc- 
cessfully, that '49 dragged the most 4.0 queens 
of any class at Navy. It wasn't all gravy, though. 
Some of us joined at an early age that great 
Navy athletic team, the "Flying Squadron," of 
which we were to be steady members for the 
rest of our days. Then, suddenly, from the far 
distant future, it appeared— June Week. Our 
second set of rivers was over and we were almost 
free men. It was agreed upon all as the best 
part of Plebe Year, for, with our drags and lib- 
erty, what more could we want? '47 graduated 
—we were sorry to see friends go, but there were 
many for whom our eyes were dry. The dance to 
the Herndon Monument, the cry of "Tain't No 
Mo' Plebes," and we were off on the great ad- 
venture, Youngster Leave, with all cares and wor- 
ries left behind.

YOUNGSTER CRUISE . . . 

( U)e ^ricd €)m* Sect Ml&cjs. 

With Plebe Year past, and June Week and Youngster Leave but 
glowing memories now, we returned to Navy and started on our 
first sea duties as midshipmen. Youngster cruise was here at last, 
and the Washington and North Carolina lost no time in showing 
us how happy they were to have us aboard. From that first fate- 
ful morning we gained a rapidly increasing knowledge of "turn 
to" in all its forms. We had gunnery classes and drills, and daily 
General Quarters. As our knowledge of the problems of every- 
day seamanship aboard ship increased, so did our respect for the 
methods used to accomplish certain ends. We were profoundly 
impressed with the efficiency of shipboard life.

Our days were full on cruise. What time was not 
occupied by classes and drills was given to turn 
to's or watches, with the result that from the morn- 
ing scrub down until knock off work in the eve- 
ning we were never still, and the nights were 
filled with watches. Holystones, scrubbers, chip- 
ping hammers, scrapers, wirebrushes, and bright 



work polish all became as familiar to us as our 
own names, and their use became second nature. 
Friday became the day we learned to dread most 
with field day soon our major hate. Under the 
none-too-lenient eye of the first class, who super- 
vised thoroughly, we kept our spaces clean and 
prayed for liberty to come as soon as possible.

The highlights of cruise were the liberties in 
our ports of call. We first invaded Newport for 
a weekend of time off to see New England. 
Then to the Caribbean for two weeks of opera- 
tions, returning to Norfolk, New York, and finally 
up the bay to Annapolis, where we changed first 
class and spent the weekend seeing the Severn 
from the sea. Then, on the second half of cruise, 
we hit our first foreign port— Panama. It was 
interesting to see the Panama Canal and the 



various installations, but for most of us the im- 
mediate attraction were the cities of Colon and 
Cristobal, where the Chicago Bar and the 
George Washington Hotel provided entertain- 
ment and relaxation. For those who were capable 
bargainers, and for those who were willing to try, 
Panama provided a fine proving ground for their 
abilities. Then on to stops in Guantanamo, 
where we unmercifully bombarded Culebra, and 
New York— civilization!

Many were the odd tasks we were 
called upon to perform while on 
cruise. Our ingenuity as well as 
that of the bo'suns, was often taxed 
to the limit by some tasks, such as 
cleaning the stacks in white works. 
As well as our regular details, there 
was always something special that 




one way or anofher 



needed doing, such as stack cleaning, fueling, 
or loading stores. Our life was varied at all 
times, and soon the only thing we were ever 
really interested in became how to find the time 
and a place to sleep. Lunch hour, dinner hour, 
any time when not turned to or on watch became 



our time for forty winks. Nights were given to two 
details, one sleeping, and the other standing 
watches. Our ability to nap became amazing, 
and we learned to sleep through the noisiest 
disturbance with ease.

Scarcely had we shaken the salt from our whites 
and scraped the barnacles from our sea legs 
when we were caught up in the rush again. 
Classes, formations, all caught up with us and 
once more we were definitely at Navy— with one 
great change— we were Youngsters! Gone were 
the days of plebedom, and now we were on the 
other end of the rope. We moved into our new 
rooms, wondering at how we had ever thought 
either them or our lockers too small. 




Is all this mine?

With our new-found rates, we were also coming 
into responsibilities — helping to see that the 
plebes were being properly indoctrinated, for 
instance. Watching cruise box races, games of 
"cupsies", and the wonderful idea of carrying on 
in the messhall— all these were ours in which to 
participate, and participate we did, as young- 
sters before us had. We found that a catnap 
during study hours was conducive to a better 
feeling, when the academics would let us.

Army Game spirit was spontaneous 



There were some bright moments in our lives, 
too. Dragging as often as the monthly insult 
would permit filled our times. Weekends never 
seemed as good as when some sweet young 
thing shared them with us. We cheered the team 
from game to game, and the spirit grew all fall 
until by the Army Game it put a twelfth man on 
the football field, making a game that would 
take its place in the ages. 




What chow!

'Ping" goes all-out 



Life was not all sweet, however, for the aca- 
demic gods still had to be appeased, and the 
midnight oil burned throughout the Dark Ages 
to satisfy the demands of steam and skinny. And 
then there were watches. The Dark Ages didn't 
seem quite as hopeless that year, though, for 
there was dragging for us, and no more Mess 
Hall question sessions fell to our lot.

Spring brought outside formations again 




bricking parties for the unfortunates . . . 






Yawl dragging was a new experience 



With spring again came a reawakening of our 
lives. Once more we P-raded each week to re- 
mind us that we occasionally did have to "march 
like the infantry." It became hard to study with 
spring in the air, and more and more our 
thoughts headed from steam and skinny toward 
that to which a young man's fancy lightly turns 
with the end of winter. Every weekend the bay 
was covered with wind-filled sails, for yawl time 
had come again, and we took our drags out 
for afternoons with the wind and spray in our 
faces. With every dragging weekend came the 
poor unfortunate who found that his blind date 
with looks, money, and personality would have 
to own a mint to offset her other qualities— and 
he was seldom allowed to escape without a re- 
minder that his misfortune had been observed 
and appreciated. June Week was just around 
the corner, and our first European Cruise was 
coming up soon. Even our fourth set of rivers 
staring us in the face didn't frighten us very much. 



and those everlasting P-rades 




We hit the water 



unfastened ourselves and escaped 



to the questionable safety of a life raft 



All spring we had been getting tasks of indoc- 
trination for aviation cruise— new insurance poli- 
cies where Uncle Sam paid the premiums, forms 
regarding the disposition of effects, and lectures 
on what to do in almost any case. Coupled with 
these lectures were the very practical "dunking 
drills," where we were given practice in what to 
do when a plane hit the water— taken in dive- 
bomber skeletons, crane - manipulated, and 
dropped into the Severn. By this time exams had 



passed and June Week was here. Our first June 
Week one - class hop was scheduled, and we 
danced in the Hawaiian setting for one perfect 
night. To be sure, we were reminded constantly 
that we were still at Navy, but with liberty as 
long as we had, who cared? Our seven days 
were over too soon, and we said "good hunting" 
to 48-A, packed our seabags, kissed our girls 
goodbye, and went out to the Randolph and 
Kearsarge, where a summer of flying awaited us. 



48-A took the oath and we became 
second classmen 






It was no time of the morning to be going anywhere 



Up the ladder to "home" 




And so once again we went "down to the sea in ships," with June 
Week behind and September leave a bright spot on the horizon. 
This time it was different, however; there were no night watches, 
we did not turn to, and our time was our own when not at classes 
or drills. To be sure, there were engineering and seamanship phases, 
but our main duty was flying. Besides, we were headed for parts 
unknown, and the prospect of European liberty was interesting.

of the Castle, the Royal Mile, and Holyrood, the beauty of the parks, 
the shops on the new side of Princess Street, the friendliness and 
generosity of the Scots.

we found a country that was more 
modern than almost any other. With 
its clean, new - looking cities, many 
amusement parks, and beautiful girls, 
Sweden seemed a veritable mecca for 
we who had spent our days looking 
at water. From Goteborg, where the 
ships anchored, some went to Stock- 
holm, where we found the same things 
—prosperity, cleanliness, and progres- 
siveness. From Liseburg to the Tivoli 
we played and relaxed. Some went 
to Copenhagen, where, although the 
prosperity was less, the spirit was the 
same.

and a traditional British naval station, and

the others visited the HMS Victory and a town 
hit by the horrors of war.

London, Westminster Abbey, the Tow-

Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, and all 
the other places we had read about. 
We talked with anybody we could— 
from the pub owner to the "Bobby", 
and learned to appreciate a few of 
the things that made England.

men starting to get acquainted. The 
same hopes and fears, love of lib- 
erty, and dislike of water hours be- 
longed to both of us, and we soon 
learned to respect and like the Army 
almost to a man. Our time was spent 
observing or doing to give us a basic 
idea of what goes on in amphibious 
warfare, and we became acquainted 
with some of the problems and some 
of their solutions. LST's, LCVP's,

more became as familiar to us as our 
own ships.

We took over the end of the table 








A new rate, taking fruit from the Mess Hall 



With aviation cruise, Camid, and September 
leave but memories, we returned to get into the 
swing of things again for Second Class Year. Our 
new rates, radios, taking over the end of a table, 
indoctrinating the plebes, made the increased 
burden of academics sit a little less heavily on 
our bowed shoulders. We had bade farewell to 
the Dago Department, and had, instead, gotten 
ordnance to insure no idle moments. More than 
ever before, our slipsticks became our constant 
companions. As second classmen we found our- 
selves with more responsibility in the Brigade or- 
ganization. Among other things, we began to 
worry about muster sheets from the other point 
of view.

Still, with the bitter came the sweet, the sweetest 
being those precious weekends— one in the fall, 
and one in the spring. They provided a break 
that caused almost as much relief in its anticipa- 
tion as in its execution. Football games during the 
fall made the weekends high spots, and the lib- 
erties in Baltimore and Philadelphia relieved much 
of the tension. Later in the year, as spring finally 
came along, we repeated our fall habits and 
made good use of our rates by dragging. Sun- 
day afternoons became devoted to sailing and

ment-paid insurance by dual flight instruction. 
N3N's and PBY's provided, respectively, our train- 
ing in the coupes and trucks of Naval Aviation.

Steam drills proved what we learned in class 

With the end of the first term we said goodbye to the Math 
Department, wiped our brows, and found ourselves out of 
the pan and into the fire. Navigation was the new arrival, 
and no longer could we stand and chuckle as the first class 
went over to Luce Hall with sad faces, piles of books, and 
steam kits. Steam, too, became more involved as enthalpy, 
entropy, and Mollier charts entered the picture to plague 
our lives, and the Juice Department, not to be outdone, coun- 
tered with Kirchoff's laws, polyphase circuits, and the mys- 
teries of AC and DC electricity.

4^h& (Ring Danec 

The end of an era came on Saturday, 29 May 
1948 when we received our initiation into the 
fraternity that wears the crest and seal on third 
finger, left hand. Our Ring Dance, despite the 
rain and heat, was the best dance of our Aca- 
demy days, and we could never forget either the 
spirit of the evening, or those who helped us 
enjoy it.

The Mighty "Mo' 



4~h& / nti One as 
tit id ttn ipwnen 

Again we went down to the sea in ships— some 
in the eight destroyers, some in the cruisers, and 
the rest on the USS Missouri, flagship of the fleet, 
this time as bosses in our own little spheres. 





Fueling from a tanker 



Our first taste of a destroyer 



Engineering watches at the 
bus panel 

Making a salinity test 





Sunsights every day for the nav detail 




It wasn't all work 



Sunbathing was popular 



We were off for Europe and soon found the old 
routine of watches, turn-to's, and working par- 
ties in full swing, with one added attraction for 
the men of the "Mighty Mo," fueling destroyers 



alongside every morning. The three-phase sys- 
tem, with its division of the cruise into gunnery, 
engineering and navigation left little time for 
leisure. 




Bus service 



Time out for a swim 




Skyline of Lisbon 



(Portugal 



Our first impression of Lisbon was one of heat, 
but we were even more amazed at the taxis— the 
low fares and the carefreeness of the drivers. 
From the luxury of Estoril with its beaches and 
casino to the old part of Lisbon, nestled under 
the Castle of St. George, with its narrow, wind- 
ing, hilly streets, we all found picturesqueness 
and beauty. 





Some things weren't modern Narrow streets 



The fleet landing at famous Black Horse Square 




'Cave of Death" near Cintra 



Que/uz Palace 



Cintra, with its old Moorish palaces and castles, 
its mountainous terrain, and magnificent views, 
was but one of the attractions near Lisbon. For 
those who made the pilgrimage, Fatima and its 
environs proved inspiring. Everywhere the lei- 
surely and friendly attitude of the people made 
us feel welcome.

From Lisbon we went into the Mediterranean and 
split up. Nice and Cannes acquainted us with 
the cities of France and the luxuries of the Riviera, 
and everywhere we found delights in the per- 
fumes, the girls, the cuisines, and the wines. 




Casino at Monte Carlo 




Boat landing at Villefranche 



The beaches were fine 




Franciscan Monastery near Nice 






Perfume factory in Grasse 



Countryside Tours 



Near our ports of call we found much to interest 
us— roads along which Caesar's legions had 
marched, perfume factories, Monte Carlo, with 
its Casino and the Grand Hotel, castles perched 
on crags looking down at us from the ages. 



Mountainside homes

We could almost hear the strains of Santa Lucia, 
as we steamed through the blue waters of the 
Legunan Sea, bound for Leghorn and Genoa, 
bases from which many departed on tours to 
Rome, Florence and Pisa, and their wonders of 
religion, art, architecture, and history. 




The Coliseum 







Some visited the Vatican 



Those of us who visited the Eternal City can well 
understand whence came the name, for it is surely 
an ageless city, appealing to all with the myriad 
facets of its personality, and we found interests 
ranging from the endless wonders of the past to 
the temporal makeshifts of the immediate present. 
For those of the Catholic faith Rome was especial- 
ly interesting, and their visit to the Vatican was for 
them the high spot of their lives. 




The leaning tower of Pisa

From Europe we went to North Africa, the vari- 
ous units of the fleet going to Algiers, Tangiers, 
and Casablanca. The native quarters, the throngs 
of little children, the distant views of the desert 
and mountains, the influences of all cultures from 
the deepest past— these stimulated our curiosity to 
make our visits to the Dark Continent memorable. 




Streets were narrow in the Casbah 




Gibraltar— guard of the Mediterranean

From Europe we turned again to our old stomping 
ground, Guantanamo. Here, in addition to the 
routine business of operating in and out of the 
harbor and practicing our gunnery, we renewed 
our acquaintance with the PX's of the base and 
the one-eyed Indian. For six days we took train- 
ing in submarine and anti-submarine warfare, 
spending three days "down under" in fleet-type 
subs and three days on the sonar gear in the 
destroyers. 





Even the future aviators were interested

Now we were starting on the last lap of our four 
year journey, and the future, both distant and 
immediate, seemed bright. The passing of Sep- 
tember leave was rendered a little less sad by 
the prospects of weekends to come, and with foot- 
ball trips and academics combining, our lives were 
full. New rates and subjects occupied our time- 
leaving the mess hall at three bells, YP drills, 
steam drills across the river, juice drills on the 
electronics barge, working star sights without the 
Nautical Almanac— our hours were full and the 
days moved by fast.

The climax to the football season came in Novem- 
ber when we made the annual trip to Philly to 
see the Greylegs on parade. Our team had 
fought all season, and this one was to be the 
biggest fight of them all. The "twelfth man" 
skipped out on the field that day and drove with 
them to the season's biggest upset, the 21-21 tie 
with Army. It was a fitting way to finish out the 
last football season that we would have.

The fall ended, and with it P-rades, outside drills, 
flying white caps, and the rest of our signs of 
autumn, to be replaced by more inside activities. 
Smoke Hall was a popular gathering place after 
meals, and the weekends became quieter, with 
concerts, shows, and hops taking over the spot- 
light, climaxed by the "Toy Show" Christmas Hop 
with its awaited companion, the first snow of 
the season— the weather was ready for a "White 
Christmas," and so were we.

To a co-o-o-ld parade 



With the last leave over, the Dark Ages descended 
upon us in all their horrors— nothing to look for- 
ward to except exams. We helped celebrate the 
Inaugural by marching in the Washington pa- 
rade, took the first term exams, and started to 
breathe easier. Physicals came and went— for 
some, the results were good— for others, a bit dis- 
appointing. For all who got the chance, however, 
seeing how the other half lives up on the Hudson, 
and having their envoys down for exchange visits, 
was enjoyable and instructive.

Watches proved less dull and more enjoyable this 
year as we found ourselves at the top of the pyra- 
mid. We found our spare time diminishing at an 
alarming rate, for the hurdles seemed higher as 
the goal came nearer. Our interests began to 
turn to the comparative values of surface and 
aviation, and our closets began to be collection 
stations for items to be used in June and after.

With the end of the Dark Ages came Hundredth

it, and relive the days of "Now when I was a 
plebe— ." The homestretch came in sight, and with 
it, our spirits rose,- even CIC drills and the many 
selection exams that came our way could not 
dampen them. Sails dotted the Severn again, 
and we fought against the insidious influence of 
spring fever. All this while we laid plans for our 
final and best June Week, and the leave soon to 
follow. The cycle was drawing to a close, and 
before we knew it, we were there.

Spring brought with it the traditional Musical Clubs' Show, 
and one of the finest pieces of entertainment that we saw 
during our stay at the Academy. Wha' Hoppen? gave a 
running account of the highlights of musical history in the 
zaniest way possible. Lou Capone, together with the various 
music-making organizations led by him, not only gave fine 
support to the entire show, but were also star features, each 
in themselves. The whole cast deserved the nation-wide 
radio hook-up that the script claimed. The show was a con- 
tinuation of the pistol shots and blue smoke in the Mess Hall 
the week before, and a fitting climax to the entertainment 
endeavors of '49.

SOB SUNDAY 

Watched by President Truman, we marched into 
the Chapel for the last time to hear Chaplain 
Bishop preach on our future education in the 
"University of Life." Although no synthetic sobs 
were heard, none of us could help but feel a 
twinge of remorse as our days at the Academy 
drew to a close.

GARDEN PARTY 

With the cool evening breezes and unclouded 
skies to add romance to the occasion, the tra- 
ditional garden party given by the Superin- 
tendent gave an opportunity for parents and 
drags alike to blossom forth in their evening 
clothes. There were tables on the lawn of 
Dahlgren and refreshments for those who just 
wished to chat, and music for those who enjoy 
dancing. It was an opportunity to introduce 
our parents to our Superintendent. 

Refreshments were plentiful

PRESENTATION 

OF THE COLORS 

One of the most colorful ceremonies of June Week was, 
as it always is, the parade for the presentation of the 
colors. As the battle for the honor to receive the colors 
thundered down the home stretch, the twenty-second 
company emerged as the "best in the Brigade." Miss 
Marie Badecker, the fiancee of company commander 
George Benas, became the Color Girl of the Class of 
1949. The occasion was all that could be hoped for, 
and it was with satisfaction that the Color Company 
gave three cheers for the Color Girl, and the Brigade 
gave three cheers for the Color Company.

FAREWELL BALL 

Our last hop as midshipman was one of the most 
successful of the year. With only the first and 
second classes in Dahlgren, the crowd was just the 
right size for comfortable dancing. Crowds of par- 
ents lined the balcony, and many of them tried out 
the floor, too. It was a hop that we all can remem- 
ber with satisfaction.

From the changing of the guard on Wednes-

the Yard was a place of constant activity. 
Evening concerts gave an opportunity to re- 
lax from the rigors of the day. Trick and 
fancy shooting, an air show by the famed 
"Blue Angels," and other events made every 
minute a full one. But the nicest was the op- 
portunity to invite our mothers into the Mess 
Hall for evening meal.

occupied our time for four years. We fran-

and naval machinery for the benefit of those 
whom we wished to impress.

AifvAA- 



With the arrival of George 
Sauer, our hopes for a more 
successful football season than 
Navy had had for the past several years were 
raised. The team worked hard and shaped up 
into a good organization. No one expected 
Coach Sauer to accomplish miracles the first year 
he was here, especially with the gruelling schedule 
which the squad had to face. The best teams in 
the country came to our door, and always left 
with a certain knowledge that they had been in 
a fight. Their power, however, was just too 
much for the Navy. The time for the all-important 
Army game arrived with almost everyone in the 
nation conceding our defeat except the midship- 
men and the team itself. The nation was sur- 
prised, we weren't, although our delight knew no 
bounds, when the game ended with a 21-21 tie. 
In spite of the numbers in the score, it was Navy's 
victory, and a warning of the caliber of team 
that would go on the field next year to make 
name for itself with an eqi 
The 




and cross-country more than held their own 
against the best on the East Coast, while those 
remarkable 150's added another undefeated sea- 
son and another championship to their record. 
With the coming of winter, basketball came into 
the limelight. While Ben Carnevale's boys didn't 
exactly burn up the circuit, they did a fine job, 
winning more than they lost, and handing the 
Army another defeat. Swimming, fencing, indoor 
track, rifle, pistol, gym, and a new varsity sport 
at the Academy, squash, carried Navy's name 
among the winners in the Sunday morning news- 
papers. The wrestling team with its phenomenal 
string of victories extending over several years, 
finally bowed to Penn State, but that was the 
only time that Ray Swartz's matmen were in the 
losing column. Spring arrived, and with it an- 
other new varsity sport, water polo. Baseball, 
track, tennis and golf, upheld their fine reputa- 
tions, while lacrosse and crew made things diffi- 
ult for all comers. All in all, the past athletic 
season was one which upheld the fine traditions of 
Navy's teams and the Navy itself.

of the game, and with every man on the team in 
fine physical condition, the boys soon made them- 
selves nine wins, a tightly fought 2-1 defeat at the 
hands of the Pennsylvania Quakers, and a 2-2 tie 
with Cornell in the opening contest of the year. 
All in all, it was a season of which any team could

Plagued by injuries, Coach Tommy Thompson's 
harriers had a difficult time of it this year. They 
fought hard and, although they were often late 
in crossing the finish line, they showed true Navy 
spirit and fight, even in defeat. The Blue and 
Gold chalked up only three victories in a heart- 
breaking season, but at the same time they were 
developing a nucleus for a dangerous team next 
year. The experience that is so vital to cham- 
pionship runners was being acquired, and the 
boys who run over hill and dale will be heard 
from in the near future.

BASKETBALL 

The strength of the Blue and Gold was, as usual, 
a big question mark in the pre-season reviews. 
Just how the hard-working veterans would get 
along with the potentially great Youngsters, no- 
body could guess. After breezing through three 
easy contests early in December, the boys ran up 
against the power of the Big Ten and the Fight- 
ing Irish. We soon came to expect no tourna- 
ment play outside our own league, but we ap- 
preciated good, hard-fought basketball and were 
thankful for the two or three wins that came with 
every loss. We felt sure that Coach Ben Carna- 
vale and his floormen would always do better 
than average in a season's time.

Something new was added this year. Heretofore, 
limited to a few short trips to nearby Eastern col- 
leges, the varsity basketball squad made its init- 
ial invasion of the Midwest in games with Notre 
Dame, Northwestern, and Minnesota. Following 
suit, the junior varsity travelled to sunny Florida, 
where it met a team at the Naval Air Station in 
Pensacola. Someone dropped the team's rabbit's 
foot on the journey west, however!

Time out 



Basketball continues to be one of our favorite 
sports, so we crowd into Dahlgren Hall whenever 
we get a chance— Wednesday afternoons, Satur- 
day afternoons, and sometimes Saturday eve- 
nings. Quite often the games are close and we 
squirm on the edges of our bleacher seats, doing 
our darndest to help the ball into the hoop. Other 
times they are onesided affairs, either for or 
against the Big Blue, and we can concentrate our 
efforts more on giving our whistle-tooting friends 
a real Plebe Year. The rougher the game gets, 
the more we like it, and the more we yell.

PISTOL 



The varsity pistol squad was another team which 
didn't seem to like to lose in Intercollegiate com- 
petition, and so its string of victories continued on 
and on. The scores made, proved that there are 
some sharp eyes, steady arms, and cool nerves 
among us.

FLE 



Continually firing in the professional 1400's, the 
rifle team has shown the results of good coaching, 
much practice, and stiff competition. It's in close 
to the bull's eye that counts, which is why the dis- 
persion of shot usually spelled victory for Navy.

SWIMMING 

Sailors are no different from anyone else— it's 
either sink or swim for them, too, but sooner or 
later it becomes swim. We had both extremes in 
swimming right up to graduation, classified re- 
spectively as sub squad and varsiiy. Members 
of the latter provided thrills in the Natatorium 
during the winter months with speed in the water 
and form off the boards, sinking the best of 
opponents and breaking a record or two when- 
ever time permitted.

The team in action 



As the best teams of the Ivy League, and some 
other fine ones of the East Coast, came to our 
door, or we to theirs, each Saturday, they did 
it with a feeling of trepidation. Coach Ortland, 
one of the "grand old men of swimming," is in 
the habit of developing teams that command 
respect, to say nothing of his individual perform- 
ers who have been representing the United States 
at the Olympic Games for twenty years. Although 
the Navy wasn't always in the "win" column, it 
was always pushing its opponents closely. In the 
Eastern Inter-collegiate Meet they also were a 
power to worry the best of them.

FENCING 



The oldest and one of the most successful sports 
at the Academy always finds a Don Juan or two 
who has never touched anything bigger than a 
kitchen knife prior to those plebe gym classes up 
in the loft, but who soon learns to push pins with 
the best of them. Fencing is by no means dead, 
so expect to find the Blue and Gold-ers ever on 
guard with epee, foil, and sabre.

SQUASH 



A mid-season shut-out in Navy's favor started the squash 
squad, newly promoted from the ranks of a battalion 
sport, on the up-swing toward a confident conclusion 
of the rugged schedule, played under the bright lights 
of varsity competition. 




INDOOR TRACK 

Taking part in all the nearby, winter meets, Navy's 
track team ran right up there with the fleet-footed stars 
from all sections of the world, Olympic champs included, 
while anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring and the 
outdoor season. 



WRESTLING 

Through the hey-years we observed the growth 
of one of the most spectacular records in the his- 
tory of collegiate sports. Under the guidance of 
a big guy from Oklahoma, our varsity wrestling 
team just couldn't seem to be defeated in dual 
competition. Its string of victories reached the 
half century mark, and the post season excellence 
of the individual grapplers was no less sensation- 
al. Each wrestler on the squad, Intercollegiate 
champion, Olympic team member, or not, found 
a receptive audience in his fellow midshipmen, 
because who doesn't like a blood-thirsty half nel- 
son or a terrifying toehold as a part of a Satur- 
day afternoon's entertainment?

GYM 

The 1949 season found as good a gym team as 
Navy has had in years working out on the bars, 
rings, ropes, horses, and mats of MacDonough 
Hall. Meets with some of the best college and 
YMCA teams of the East Coast provided consid- 
erable spectator enjoyment, and make each one 
of us want to get out there and show Tarzan a 
thing or two, right along with the best of them. 
As usual, the Army meet was the biggest obstacle 
along the road to success, and also as usual, it 
was close and hard fought.

hardest fought baseball games imaginable. Right 
after winter exams the boys start limbering up in 
Dahlgren Hall— first, just the prospective battery- 
men, but later all contenders are given a chance 
to get their timing set by swinging a bat in the nets 
under simulated battle conditions. The first sign 
of spring brings the first outdoor practice; more 
and more follow until a "terror of the Ivy League" 
is whipped into shape. Soon again a successful 
season, with the better collegiate teams of the 



East and even a big league nine or two, closes 
with the West Point pennant on the Hubbard Hall 
flag pole being lowered to the dip, just below that 
of a victorious Blue and Gold.

SAILING 



After all, midshipmen should learn to sail, and 
they do— some with more vigor than others, but 
they all sail. The yawls and knockabouts see ac- 
tion in pleasure trips and intra-brigade competi- 
tion, but those terrific dinghies receive the expert 
handling of the varsity sailing team, composed of 
some who sailed before they walked and of others 
who had never even seen water before Plebe 
Summer. Many dinghy races are held each year 
on the inlets of the old Atlantic, and in these the 
ill winds which blow no Navy victory are few and 
far between.

LACROSSE 

Although peculiar mostly to this section of the 
country, lacrosse, the Indian game, is enthusi- 
astically accepted by all who come into contact 
with it. Since it requires so much stamina and 
practice, the ham V eggers can always be found 
outdoors playing whenever there is not more than 
twelve inches of snow on the grounds. When such 
adverse conditions do prevail, they usually take 
to their rooms to toss the hard white ball against 
a bulkhead, in order to get that ever important 
stick work down pat. Maryland, Johns Hopkins, 
and the Army provide the big games of the year.

Long before the last snow has melted from the

activity, as candidates for the Navy crew hold 
pre-season workouts on the rowing machines, aim-

while the winds are still cold, they make their 
first trip up and down the Severn, now as cogs in 
one machine, working as a team. During the sea-

WATER POLO 

The baby of varsity sports, water polo, was born 
when a championship battalion team accepted a 
challenge from the boys up on the Hudson and 
proceeded to dump those Kaydets two years in 
succession before the Reg book had ever even 
heard of the game. Basketball and swimming are 
both strenuous sports as is, but when put together 
and slightly modified as water polo, they become 
even more rugged than can be imagined.

TENNIS 



Fast Return 



The large number of courts right out in our front 
yard are proof enough that tennis is one of Navy's 
most popular sports. Some of the action seen there 
is not quite what you'd call professional, but 
around in the back of Ward Hall it's an all to- 
gether different story. The HarTru courts there 
bear up under the heat of a blazing sun and the 
strain of anxious feet, as another Big Blue team 
points toward the top in Intercollegiate net com- 
petition.

GOLF 

Many Navy wives undoubtedly become golf wid- 
ows while their husbands-to-be are still midship- 
men. Proof of this can be found any time the 
weather is mediocre or better and the boys have 
over two hours during which they can slip across 
the river to get in nine or eighteen. It takes more 
than a bite from the golf bug to turn in a par 
score, however; and it takes a par to win a first 
string position on the varsity team. Those who do 
tee-off for Navy are steady with their putters, 
deadly with their approach chips, and exact with 
well-timed and long distant drives.

Although some of us spent part of the year play-

most of the year playing on battalion or company 
teams. The highly competitive intra-mural sports 
program put us into fine physical condition and 
kept us there, at the same time developing a 
spirit of competition in each one of us that would 
help to make us good officers. With the year 
divided into three seasons and a number of dif-

ferent activities in each season, there was enough 
variety of choice that no one need participate in 
an activity in which he was not interested. As a 
result, some excellent teams were produced. The 
program also provided mental relaxation and 
gave us a break from the steady grind of aca- 
demics. Firm friendships were made on the ath- 
letic fields, and experiences were acquired that 
would serve us faithfully all our lives.

With the election of its officers during the fall of Third Class 
Year, the LUCKY BAG began its slow emergence as a chron- 
icle of the activities of our class. A skeleton staff of the 
men who would be the editors of the book was organized

under the Officer-representative, LCDR John A. Gommengen- 
ger. An embryonic layout was devised, discussed, revised, 
and finally approved. Specifications for printing, engrav- 
ing, and photographic contracts were drawn up, contacts 
with the respective firms made, and the contracts themselves 
finally let. During Second Class Year portraits of the class 
were made and the huge task of writing the biographies 
accomplished. At last the staff was ready to begin the 
bulk of the book.

First Class Year, with LCDR John M. Miller as Officer- 
representative, the book started to take shape. Finished 
layouts were completed and the job of trying to fill the 
holes with appropriate pictures began. At the same time 
the business staff organized circulation and advertising 
drives. The whole staff was enlarged by the addition of 
underclassmen, men who would themselves be publish- 
ing the yearbooks of the respective classes in the not- 
too-distant future. Every afternoon the office in the First 
Wing Basement trembled under the pounding of type- 
writers and often heated arguments of the editorial and 
business staffs, one trying to spend money and the other 
trying to save it. Among the First Classmen, weekend 
liberties came few and far between as the effort toward 
meeting deadlines was made. The darkroom was con- 
stantly nagged at for more production with more speed. 
And, by the middle of March, it was all over but the 
printing of the June Week Supplement, which would be 
added to the books to round out the class' history with 
that long-awaited and wondrous event. The headaches 
will be soon forgotten, the experience and satisfaction of 
publishing the 1949 LUCKY BAG, never.

Under the able tutelage of John Leyerle, assisted by the apt 
members of his staff, the LOG reached new heights of popu- 
larity. Well-written stories, clever and novel cartoons and 
jokes, up-to-date news of the Brigade and Navy, and an 
excellent coverage of the sports scene made it a favorite, 
not only with the midshipmen, but also with their drags, 
families, and friends. Long recognized as one of the better 
college magazines, it surpassed itself this year. Mert Fallon's 
care of its finances kept the magazine operating efficiently 
and in the black. All in all, this was a year that was out- 
standing in every respect for a publication that expects to 
be outstanding as a matter of course.

The fine issues produced were the product of much hard work 
and co-operation among the various components of the staff. 
The art staff with its many talented members, for instance, 
was a vital factor in the success of the magazine. Layouts, 
photography, and literary members all made their indis- 
pensible contributions. And the business staff, the men who 
tramped the streets of Annapolis to secure advertising, the 
men who conducted the circulation drives and handled the 
distribution, these, too, were important.

An outlet for the artistic and literary talent in the Brigade, 
the Trident Magazine holds a unique and important place in 
the scheme of things in Bancroft. Operating under a disad- 
vantage this year, because of its past several unsuccessful 
seasons, it made a truly remarkable comeback. Chuck Reid 
inspired a degree of co-operation from its contributors, that 
had been lacking, with the result that the magazine im- 
proved both in layout and content. The stories and poetry 
were never better, and the photography, under the watchful 
eye of "Mac" McQuiston, was indeed unexcelled. With these 
improvements, the Brigade took the Trident Magazine to its 
collective heart, and eagerly awaited each succeeding issue.

The 1949 Trident Calendar 



Cfc« trident Calendar 

Editor Bob Faricy and Business Manager Andy Carr this 
year once again produced a Trident Calendar well quali- 
fied to take its place among the past fine editions. Its popu- 
larity was proved by the fact that, not only did one repose 




Editor Bob Faricy and Business Manager Andy Carr 



on every desk in Bancroft, but the demand was so great 
that a reprint was ordered. Unique in the field of Academy 
publications, the Trident Calendar, serves a useful purpose 
in the life of every midshipman.

REEF POINTS 

It is called the Plebe's Bible, not without reason. In it is 
all the naval lore and traditional questions and answers 
which must become a part of every midshipman's life; with 
it each Plebe must become familiar as a part of his indoc- 
trination. This little book must each year be brought up to 
date as the Navy progresses. This year it was the respon- 
sibility of Editor Joe Pausner to make the revisions and 
under his leadership it was a job well done. 



Frequent consultation was the key to success

On with the show 



An organization which provides an outlet for the acting and 
associated talents of the Brigade, The Masqueraders each 
spring presents a play. All parts of the production are ably 
handled by midshipmen individually and in groups. The 
Property Gang is in charge of costuming and props; the 
Make-up Gang is responsible for the appearance of the 
actors; the Stage Gang collects and constructs the scenery, 
preparing the backgrounds for the various scenes; the Juice 
Gang makes signs and arranges for the lighting effects; and 




Practice makes perfect

the Sound Gang arranges for and operates the public 
address system, makes recordings, and handles the sound 
effects generally. Not the least vital of the components is 
the Business Staff, for each production must be self-sup- 
porting. These varied groups maintain the high degree of 
co-operation and integration which is so necessary for the 
successful production of any show. This year the play was 
Arsenic And Old Lace. The professional manner in which it 
was produced was a tribute to the ability and hard work 
of these groups.

Under the musical showmanship of Jack Peters the 
Marching Band came into existence this year. At every 
football game they drew amazed admiration with their 
precision formations and superb music, adding a great 
deal of color and spirit to the games. As the football 
season passed, the organization became the Concert 
Band with few personnel changes, and delighted us 
with their renditions of classical and modern music.

The Naval Academy Choir 



' : : / : 



€&« CHOIR 



Each Sunday the Choir adds to the solemnity of Chapel 
services with their singing. Soloists Norman Gibson and Cal 
Norman often contributed their talented voices to the occa- 
sion. In December the Choir combined with the choir of 
Hood College to produce The Messiah in a beautifully fin- 
ished manner. Under the hand of Professor Gilley, the Choir 
can look back with pride on a successful season.

The Drum and Bugle Corps 



Marching down the field in a Thursday afternoon p-rade, 
into the stadium at a football game, or on the front terrace 
at a meal formation, the Drum And Bugle Corps provides 
stirring martial music for the Brigade, adding much to the 
color and precision of its movements. Although it was a 
victim of the war years, when it was disbanded, the organi- 
zation soon became a favorite with admiral and midshipman 
alike when it was "reactivated" two years ago. It is interest- 
ing to note that its success is due solely to its talented mid- 
shipman leaders, for its administration and training is en- 
tirely under their control.

Meeting in Mem Hall 



H*>9S MMtllBM CI Oil* 



The Naval Academy chapter of this national collegiate organization 
offers to the men of the Catholic faith a means of gaining knowledge 
of religious thought pertaining to all phases of their present and 
future life. With Chaplain Rotrige, and occasional guest speakers, 
to lead their discussions, the midshipmen find practical, as well as 
spiritual, counsel. 



It. M. Christian 



As an instrument of guidance for the midshipmen of the Protestant 
faith, Chaplain Wuebbens offers the Naval Academy Christian As- 
sociation. Combining varied entertaining and profitable programs, 
the Association is a source of amusing diversion, as well as instruc- 
tive counsel and spiritual enlightenment.

From early spring to late fall the yawls and yachts of the 
Naval Academy are sailing on the Bay manned by the mem- 
bers of the Boat Club. Each sailing master is responsible for 
the maintenance and upkeep of one of the boats and many 
long afternoons are spent in scraping and polishing and 
mending. These are the "iron men" of bygone days. 

By the time they get to diodes, filters, and grids in first 
class Juice, These "ham" operators of the Academy radio 
station have more than a good idea as to what the whole 
thing is about. When gathered around their mass of trans- 
mitters and receivers, they do actually do more than just 
raise havoc with the reception of radio broadcasts.

The Forensic Society 



Successor to the age-old Quarterdeck Society, this group of oratorical 
wizards meets to sharpen their speech and to support their views on items 
of interest against fellow lovers of debate. Members are entered into the 
Naval Academy Oratory Contest and also into numerous intercollegiate 
debates. More often than not they walk off with top honors, too. 



We never let one of this group hear us say that stamps were only a means 
of transmitting thoughts to that girl back home; they know better. Through 
their organization, a chapter of the Society of Philatelic Americans, they 
gain more information on the histories of their stamps and also a chance 
to increase their excellent collections of rarities.

Expanded from the once minute "Press Detail," Public Rela- 
tions has become a large organization and is giving the 
enormous job of keeping the Brigade and the nation "in- 
formed" through the use of every means possible. Members 
of the committee quite often find that they have their hands 
more than full. The weekly "dope sheet" on sport has to be 
made up, and the regular Wednesday afternoon radio pro-

By bringing to us an array of men "in the know," this in-

Since 1927, aerols have been the accepted shock 
absorbing struts on many of America's best known 
airplanes. Today, with a new, young, enthusiastic 
management — 

. . . the same group of competent engineers 
. . . the same force of skilled artisans 
up-to-the-minute plant tools 

we are busy, as always, serving the aircraft industry. 

Besides aerols proper, we manufacture various 
elements of mounting and retracting mechanisms 
— supports, actuators, trunnion units, drag struts 
and links, jury link assemblies and miscellaneous 
parts. They are included in the landing gear we 
make for the famous Lockheed P2V. 

Ask our Engineering Department for design data 
sheets on which information can be supplied for 
prompt service in making estimates.

ZiHUliiljt the kind you can count on, is nothing new to Stetson. We have had the high 
honor of supplying Stetson shoes to the Naval Academy since the Spanish 
War. Shoemaking methods have changed almost as much as shoe styles in 
these four decades. But there has never been a change in this one basic order 
at Stetson . . .to be good enough for the Navy, a shoe has got to be as good as Stetson- 
can make it. And that, gentlemen, is very good indeed. The Stetson Shoe

Preparing to launch a new tanker: This is another step toward getting oil where it is needed. 

1 hCy CCirry gOOCi TiCWS. . . The world's need for petroleum has reached 
an all-time high — and is still increasing! Today the need for petroleum is even far 
greater than during the peak war year of 1945. 

For this reason we have greatly expanded our tanker fleet. Each time another tanker is 

put into service, we know it will soon help to distribute more petroleum more widely. 

As part of this effort, the building of new pipelines, storage and refining facilities is 

also being rushed to completion. For wherever 

petroleum goes, comfort and convenience follow. STANDARD OIL COMPANY

so millions 
may live! 

Out of a Berlin bakery, this German child 

trundles bread made from flour flown in by 

American pilots in Douglas planes. 

A marvel of modern mass transportation, the Berlin 

Air Lift was made possible through the 

courage and efficiency of Air Force personnel, 

plus the foresight and creative skills of 

Douglas craftsmen and engineers. For, ready 

to meet this need — as they were ready to" 

meet the needs of war— were fleets of 

Douglas DC-4s (Army C-54 . . . Navy R5D) 

—backbone of the Air Lift. 

Realizing the vital importance of dependable 
air transport— both military and commercial- 
Douglas continues to pioneer new transport 
models. Now under construction is the 
new DC-6A air freighter capable of flying 
loads up to 30,000 lbs. at 300 mph. Future 
operations, utilizing the DC-6A, will require 
half as many planes, three-fourths the men, 
and reduce operating costs one-third, compared 
with present Berlin Air Lift requirements.

The SUBMARINE Comes Into Its Own 





It was 49 years ago that the U.S. Navy com- 
missioned its first submarine, the Holland, built 
by the Electric Boat Company. She was an ex- 
periment, regarded by many as of doubtful value. 

Since those pioneering days, EBCo has built 
hundreds of submersibles for the Navy. During 
this period the Navy's submarine service has 
dramatically demonstrated its effectiveness in 
both defensive and offensive naval warfare. Per- 
haps the greatest strides in submarine efficiency 



were made during World War II, when with 
only 1.6% of the Navy's total personnel, U.S. 
subs accounted for 52% of all Jap ships sunk 
by any means, including aircraft. 

Today many naval planners regard the sub- 
marine as the capital warship of the future. 
Here at EBCo we are working in conjunction 
with the Navy to develop undersea craft of un- 
matched speed, safety and fighting power. Our 
country must keep pace to keep the peace.

Keeping a great Aviation Tradition 




From three great pioneers of heavier-than-air flying, 
Glenn H. Curtiss and the Wright Brothers — Curtiss- 
Wright derives both its name and its tradition of long- 
range planning and research. 

Long-range planning and research preceded the 
world's first successful motorized flight by the Wright 
Brothers on December 17, 1903 in a Wright plane 
powered by a Wright engine . . . preceded, too, the 
first official flight ever recorded in the United States 
. . . made in 1908 in a plane designed, powered and 
piloted by Glenn Curtiss. 



In the same pioneering spirit of these great founders 
of modern aviation . . . but with far greater research 
and experimental facilities at their command . . . 
Curtiss- Wright engineers evolved airplanes, engines 
and propellers that saw action in every combat theater 
in the world during the war . . . and today fly on many 
leading commercial airlines. 

Today, continuing research and development at 
Curtiss- Wright are evolving planes, engines and pro- 
pellers that will keep the names Curtiss and Wright 
first in flight as they have for 46 years.

Leadership, Through Competition, Means TOP QUALITY ! 



Leadership in The United States Navy or 
leadership in civilian life is difficult to 
gain . . . and more difficult to retain! It is 
free competition that is directly responsi- 
ble for the capable leadership and the high 
standards of living we, as Americans, enjoy 
today . . . and every day! Competition is a 
symbol of the American way of life! 

Leadership in any class ... in scholarship 
or industry, is gained 
only through competi- 
tion. Industrial leader- 
ship, for example, cannot 
be gained by capital alone 
but by the ability to pro- 
vide the very best in 



each field of endeavor. 

In the steel casting industry, Unitcast 
has gained and retains the leadership of 
it's class by continually providing the very 
best! As founders of fine electric steel cast- 
ings, top quality has been foremost . . . 
accuracy, stability and dependability are 
integral parts of every Unitcasting!

The Ship Control Console 
is another important example of 
RCA's skill in research and engineering. 



SHIP CONTROL- at yovr fingertips! 



FORTY-NINE INSTRUMENTS and controls . . . formerly 
scattered in confusing array about the pilot house . . . 
now consolidated in this compact console. Not only 
is this a great simplification of the problem of ship 
control, but a real saving in topside weight and space. 
This new convenience, developed in close co-opera- 
tion with the U.S. Navy, represents the most modern 
advancement in the progress of ship control ... a 
process which has been going on since man first 
ventured on the open sea. With the passage of years, 
every new device which has been introduced to the 
ship's bridge has consumed a little more of the steadily 
diminishing area of deck and bulkhead space. 



With the Ship's Control Console, the first step has 
been taken in the direction of consolidating the most 
essential instruments and controls on a single console 
. . . within an arm's length, and within the view of a 
single pair of eyes. 



Consideration of problems such as were presented by 
the Ship's Control Console are the daily concern of 
RCA engineers. The activities of RCA embrace all 
phases of research and engineering in the science of 
radio communications and electronics on land, sea, and 
in the air.

IN THE NAVY 

Cuff links contribute much to the smartly 
turned-out appearance of Navy men. 

For years Navy men have worn Krementz 
quality cuff links under adverse and changing 
climatic conditions. 

The Krementz process of plating with a heavy 
over-lay of genuine 14 kt. gold makes this 
finer jewelry look richer and wear longer.

Deep in the water, MS Pennsylvania Sun plows toward Sun Oil Company's giant refinery at Marcus Hook, Pa., on the Delaware River. 

For the Navy. . . For Industry. . . For Motorists 

MORE AND BETTER PETROLEUM PRODUCTS 



You'll frequently see Sunoco tankers along the 
north-south Atlantic shipping lanes. They're on 
a 1 2-day round trip schedule between deep-water ter- 
minals in Texas and Sun's refinery in Pennsylvania. 

Their cargo is crude oil . . . more than 52 million 
barrels in 1 948 ... to help meet the tremendous de- 
mand for more and better petroleum products. 

Finished products from this crude oil are widely 
used in military service, in industry, and in motor- 
ists' automobiles. Whether it's Grade 145 aviation 



gasoline . . . jet fuel . . . job-proved lubricants for 
specialized industrial uses . . . high-test motor fuel 
. . . reinforced motor oils ... or any other product 
bearing the Sunoco trademark . . . you'll find it rates 
a "well done" for performance.

Here's a bar of strong, foundation metal over- 
layed with a substantial sheet of solid karat gold. 




The two are permanently welded together under 
great heat and pressure, forming a solid com- 
pact mass. It is not an electroplate or a deposit. 




Finally this composite bar is rolled under tre- 
mendous pressure, into strips of required thick- 
ness, which are hard, firm,., close-grained and 
durable. Our military insignia are fashioned 
from these strips. This is Gold Filled*. It is so 
marked by law.

A GOOD 
REPUTATION 

at no cost 



N every product of Clark there is one 
element that adds greatly to its value but 
not one penny to its cost: The Clark repu- 
tation. 

That good reputation is based on more 
than 40 years of competent usefulness to 
many industries. It is widely respected as 
a symbol of sound, far-seeing engineer- 
ing. It stands for the pioneering spirit that 
is forever searching for more durable, more 
efficient, more economical equipment. 

You can't charge for a reputation— can't 
put a price on it, because it's priceless; 
can't get money for it because money didn't 
create it. So we put ours into everything we 
produce— at no charge.

*The Sperry gyro-compass with its 
non-magnetic, true north indications is 
the modern mariner's guide for trust- 
worthy, accurate direction. 

* Sperry radar is his safeguard and 
protection when visibility is poor — 
permitting his ship to operate on 
regular schedule through fog, smoke, 
rain, darkness. 

if Sperry loran gives him position — 
anytime, in all weather, anywhere 
within range of radio signals from 
land-based transmitting stations. 



This group of three Sperry instruments 
— with their complementary func- 
tions — equips a ship with the most 
modern means of making navigation 
safer, simpler and more efficient. 

Every one of these Sperry products 
offers superior features: In the Sperry

Compass-controlled image and a 
simple operating technique ... In

The Bancroft Pak-Cap is smartly adapted to the stream-

Packed in a jiffy in grip, suitcase or foot-locker, it resists 
crushing and emerges with parade ground jauntiness. 
This unique construction is one of many Bancroft advances 
made possible by almost half a century of specialization.

J.t's likely you'll soon be one of the lucky lads 
assigned to a vessel whose copper, brass or copper 
nickel pipe lines are fitted with Silbraz* joints 
made with Walseal Fittings or Walseal Valves. 
If so, we know they'll increase your peace of mind 
because a Silbrazed system means a "one-piece" 
pipe line with no potential joint failures. 

Skippers who were shipmates with Silbraz joints 
during the war will tell you that when hell was 
poppin' on deck there was no need to worry about 
the Silbraz system below. Silbraz joints can't creep 
or pull apart under any condition of temperature, 
pressure, shock, or vibration which the pipe itself 

can survive. Good luck!

To promote, further and support an 
American Merchant Marine 

The National Defense requires the availability of a strong 
American Merchant Marine, "capable of serving as a 
naval and military auxiliary in time of war or national 
emergency." For this reason, a large number of U. S. 
Naval officers are members of The Propeller Club of the 
United States or have participated in this organization's 
activities over the past twenty-two years. 

The PROCEEDINGS of the American Merchant Marine 
Conference, sponsored each year by the Propeller Club, 
containing the considered opinions on current problems 
and developments by experts in the maritime field and 
of leaders in the Navy and the American Marine Industry 
should be read by every Naval officer who is interested 
in the maintenance of an adequate and effective merchant 
fleet under the American flag. Write to

FOR over fifty years, Mullins experts have been converting 
some of the most complex forgings and castings into metal 
stampings . . . from washing machine tubs to truck assemblies, 
from tractors to kitchen sinks. 

The result in every case has been lowered costs, faster produc- 
tion, lighter-weight products and refinement of product design. 

Even when it appears that there is no place for stampings in 
large-run parts . . . even when stampings are already used . . . 
a talk with Mullins may easily mean a major step forward in 
production processes.

Be sure your collar has that fresh, 
clean look. It always will if you 
are wearing a Linene Collar. For 
Linene is the collar that's snowy 
white all the time, never wrinkles 
or cracks. When they soil, just 
throw them away. For neatness and

EXCELLENT EARNINGS ON INVESTMENTS 

For the twelfth consecutive year Jefferson Stand-

life insurance companies in rate of interest earned 
on invested assets. 



HIGHEST RATE OF INTEREST PAID 

In 1948 4% interest was paid on funds held in 
trust for policyholders and beneficiaries. Not since 
organization of the company in 1907 has Jeffer-

President Price Highlights 

Best Year in 
Jefferson Standard History 



"The aim of the life insurance business is to provide financial security. This is a 
service now given high public acceptance. In the Jefferson Standard, as in all 
other well managed companies, we carry with us in our daily operation a keen 
sense of fiduciary responsibility. 

"The reports for the year tell the story of our work. The safety of policy- 
holders funds, the extension of service to new fields, the development of new 
policy contracts, the over-all stability of Jefferson Standard should be a matter 
of great satisfaction to our policyholders."
